A diverse exhibit featuring works by Luther College Art Program faculty is on display in the Kirstin Wigley-Fleming Fine Arts Gallery in the Center For the Arts on the Luther College campus through Oct. 17.
Artists and their work include:
· Ben Moore with a series of paintings with Luther alumnus Byron Anway titled "Sexy/OFFENDER" which mash online image-based culture with 18th century French portraiture;
· Joe Madrigal with sculpture and video of material investigations influenced by the complexity of memory and bodily experience;
· Lea Donhowe with mixed media recontexturalizations of personal memories of her grandmothers from lace doilies to bottomless cups of coffee, bits of wisdom and quilting;
· Aaron Lurth with pigmented ink jet prints of documentary photos of the British seaside town of Brighton; and
· David Kamm with sticks wrapped with original prints that are explorations of the relationship between the natural and artificial.
The show also includes work by Harley Refsal, Luther professor emeritus, with wood figure carvings in the Norwegian flat plane tradition; and sabbatical replacement Justin Sorensen with a large scale drawing, and a video derived from the parable of the "Wise and Foolish Builders" found in the Gospel of Matthew that documents the artist's actions with a block of ice and a beach on the Atlantic Ocean.
A gallery reception will be held at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, in the Wigley-Fleming Gallery.
