Revisiting Rockwell by Maggie Meiners                 

June 22 – July 28, 2018              

Opening Reception: Friday, June 22, 5 – 7 pm

Sponsored by Yvonne & Brian Hoop

Meiners’ project, Revisiting Rockwell, attempts to contemporize Rockwell’s original works by weaving into each photograph the social issues and elements more suggestive of today. She is examining whether the nostalgia of Rockwell’s work translates into our rapidly changing lifestyles and how his very human tableaux can reflect this moment in time. She is drawn to Rockwell’s work because she has always had a fascination with the past and ends up having a better understanding of the world if she looks at the old in the context of the new. As she continues to examine Rockwell’s work, she has noticed, for better or worse, that while sociological landscape  has changed in many ways, there is much that remains the same.

 June 22 – July 28, 2018                      

Opening Reception: Friday, June 22, 5 – 7 pm

Ceramic artist Katherine Tauscher uses the hand-building method of pinching to create her functional work. Her organic pinched surfaces, bright colors, and playful use of imagery create an engaging visual and tactile experience for both viewers and users.

Having completed degrees in Architecture, and Fine Arts in Design, now Professor of Architecture and Interior Design at Miami University,  John Humphries is a visual artist, gardener, and designer focusing on translating one media form to another. The creative work takes the form of photo/watercolor constructions, carved wooden slabs, and automatic poems.

The two artists will fill the Armstrong Gallery with complex color and pattern relationships while exploring the playfulness that mixed media works can allow.
