Objects in Space II: Closing Reception
Cover: “Spiritual Intersection” by Francesca Giuliani
On Thursday January 16 from 5 pm-7 pm there was a closing reception for the show Objects in Space. This show was in the Insalaco gallery and included work from ceramics, sculpture, and mixed media. There was a great turn out of people coming to support the artists and view a variety of artwork created last semester.
This show was particularly exciting because of the wide range of materials that were exhibited. There was an interesting mix of classic materials such as fabric, ceramics, iron, copper, plaster, wood, and glass. Some artists chose to use unconventional materials such as plastic garbage, straw, flower imprints, handmade paper, thrifted ice skates, and even human hair.
I had the opportunity to talk to some of the artists about their inspiration and material choices to get to know more about some of the stand-out pieces in the show.
