"A Sense of Place: Curated by Glenn Nerwin"
2003-04-18 until 2003-06-14
Arlington Museum of Art
USA United States of America
A Sense of Place features the work of seven Texas artists from across the state who are working with ideas that revolve around location, context, time and events and our place within the continuum. Artists in the exhibition are Daniel Blagg, Gregory Horndeski, Guy Hundere, Sherry Owens, Suzanne Paquette, Lordy Rodriguez and Ann Stautberg.
The exhibition includes drive-by landscape videos by Guy Hundere that play with our sense of "a still point in a turning world", Daniel Blagg's urban Texas realist paintings that capture the loneliness and specificity of location and a moment in contemporary time, Lordy Rodriguez's printed and painted images drawn from imagined aerial maps of his travels that become a catalog of his experiences, Gregory Horndeski's miniatures of disasters, liquidly and decoratively painted in detailed, over-the-top color, Sherry Owens' sculptures that deal with our relationship to the earth and the natural materials found on it and in it,
Ann Stautberg's large photographs of the coast that capture time and location within the gulf culture; and Suzanne Paquette's heavily textured, solar-burned and painted works that recreate other worlds and planetary bodies.
Curator Glenn Nerwin will lead an art talk at the opening reception on May 2, at 7PM.
The exhibition is generously sponsored by nerwin + martin art consultants. We also thank AMA Members, Glazer's Distributors, the Star-Telegram and the City of Arlington for their ongoing support.
