Fenwick Gallery is pleased to host “Origins,” an exhibition of prints and works on paper from the Mason printmaking collective ELEMENTS. The exhibition runs from Monday, April 16, 2018 through Friday, May 18, 2018.
“Origins” examines creation myths focusing on the genesis of man, the material world, and the role of divine beings. The four participating artists and the curator, representing the classical elements of earth, air, fire, water, and æther, create a body of work in response to the role of the natural elements in the formation of the universe. Participating artists include Brigitte Caramanna (Earth); Mike Walton (Aether); Melvin Parada (Water); Emily Fussner (Fire); and Jennifer Lillis, Curator (Air).
An artists’ talk is scheduled on Wednesday, May 2 at 4:30 p.m. in the Fenwick Library Main Reading Room.
