The Wabash College Art Department will present Monday, September 9 an exhibition called Habitat. Opening reception is from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Eric Dean Gallery in the Fine Arts Center at Wabash College. Artist, Stacey Holloway will be at the opening and will speak at 7:15 p.m.
The Habitat group exhibition highlights the artwork of sculptor Stacey Holloway and painters Tammie Brazee and Laura Carpenter Truitt. The exhibiting artists “invite the viewer to consider the spaces in which we live and how we live in them at this moment in history from multiple vantage points.”
Stacey Holloway’s artwork arises from her experience living and workingin the Midwest, a place she claims as her home, including native geography and wildlife.
Tammie Brazee’s paintings visually explore the awkward and detached relationship that many Americans have with the natural world as manifested in the way we vacation in National Parks and other naturally beautiful places.
Laura Carpenter Truitt’s paintings reference the interaction of architecture and landscape wherein physical space merges with abstract forms.
The exhibit continues through October 12. The exhibit is free and open to the public and handicap accessible. The hours for the Eric Dean Gallery are 9-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10-2 p.m. Saturday.
