In Sync, Part II
October 5, 2020 to October 26, 2020
August 17 – October 26, 2020
Curated by Gallery Director Darrell Taylor and installed in the Main Room (B). Its purpose is to offer art students, staff, and faculty a place to view art during on campus in-person instruction. COVID-19 protocols are in place, so masks must be worn, social distancing must be observed, and only 10 persons are allowed in the space at a time.
20 art objects are on display from Romare Bearden to Sonnenzimmer, from Mary Snyder Behrens to Robert Arneson, from Mark Tobey to Kee-ho Yuen, to three of our UNI photography alumni. It was conceived as a continuation of a summer 2018 single-day exhibition presented in association with a Cedar Valley Chamber Music concert titled L.A. Stories: Forgotten Composers of the Silver Screen, in which objects from different artists were paired. These pairings present the viewer with closely related themes, similar use of materials, or an uncanny presentation of shared motifs (i.e., shapes, textures, line, and subject matter).
