“People/Places/Things: Perspectives on Identity and Moments of Familiarity” will be on display at the Bradbury Art Museum beginning this evening and continuing through Nov. 30.
The opening reception will be tonight (Sept. 8) from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. for three different exhibits at the museum.
This exhibition brings together 14 artists whose work engages with realism, whether it be stylistically or conceptually. Through a wide variety of mediums and disciplines, the artists explore identity, place, and the significance of mundane objects. Viewers are invited to re-imagine the everyday and question their own perceptions of reality.
Work by Kristen Franyutti, assistant professor of studio art at A-State, will also be exhibited in “Unlatched,” in Gallery A.
“Viewing my work transports the viewer into an illusory world of biomorphic forms inspired by recent innovations in applied science, the human body, and its surroundings,” Franyutti said in her artist’s statement. “The work depicts a future ecosystem of otherworldly elements, a world in which the inhabitants are hybridizations and mutations of the micro/macro realm of our ecosystem.”
Former art faculty members Ryna Frankel and Alex Hanson will have their work in “Soon to be Beachfront Property,” in the Vaughn Gallery.
These two exhibitions will continue through Oct. 6.
The museum is admission free and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.
Bradbury Art Museum is located in Fowler Center on the Arkansas State University campus.
