Carthage Art Exhibit: Clear and Present

January 8, 2018 – March 2, 2018

Mon-Fri: 12 - 5 p.m., Thurs. 6 - 8 p.m., Sat. 1 - 4 p.m.

Featuring artwork by Kristin Bauer and Paul Owen Weiner, the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art will hold “Clear and Present” from Jan. 8 through March 2.

Admission to the exhibition is free, and the public is welcome. The gallery is located on the campus.

“Clear and Present” dissects the visual vocabulary of language through a continuum of printed words from the concrete to the unknowable.

Based in Tempe, Arizona, Bauer builds sculptural assemblages that layer text within strata of polymer pigment and plexiglass. They create visual abstractions and transfer new meaning into fixed language.

Weiner, of Denver, frames prints of legislative documents and executive orders under distressed and decimated glass surfaces. The redacted transparency incites limitations of expression during times of duress.

Special events planned during the exhibition include:

  • Opening reception: 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11
  • Artist lecture: 5 p.m. Feb. 28
