November 14- December 14, 2013
Opening Reception: November 14, 2013, 5-8 PM
For this exhibition, the A+D Gallery has brought together a series of works from artists and designers that in some way deal with wood’s material and visual properties. For thousands of years people have used wood for a myriad of purposes, including fuel, shelter, tools, furniture, packaging, transportation, and paper. Wood-- in its basic form of a tree-- is the basis of many pictorial images which have peppered thousands of landscape paintings and photographs. Wood is also the material used in wood type printing. The artists in this exhibition take on a variety of approaches to this material and its representation.
Participating Artists and Designers Include: Bridgette Buckley, Jeff Carter, The Franklin (Dan Sullivan and Edra Soto), Luis Gispert, Jeffrey Grauel, Andy Hall, John Henley, Marie Lorenz, Gordon Matta-Clark, Heather Mekkelson, Object Orange, Greta de Parry, Michelle Peterson-Albandoz, Min Song, and Starshaped Press (Jennifer Farrell)
