Gallery Exhibit at IUP Features Art and Poetry

Posted on 10/23/2014 3:44:29 PM

Kipp Gallery opens its next exhibit October 30, 2014, with The Mountain and the Bumble Bee. Featuring a variety of art and poetry, the exhibit will run through December 5. Admission is free. Kipp Gallery is located on the first floor of Sprowls Hall on the IUP campus.

The Mountain and the Bumble Bee brings together selected works by contemporary artists and poets who confront broadly defined notions of landscape as both cultural icon and raw material. The exhibit contains a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting, digital, and poetic verse.

The featured artists maneuver the complex web of references contributing to our understanding of landscape. Scenes from Hollywood Westerns abut survey photographs and miniature paintings to highlight America’s often‐contradictory role as both steward and exploiter of the land are among the subjects to be explored.

Participating visual artists and poets include Rick Barot, Patrick Bizarro, Robin Clarke, Mathew Conboy, Todd Davis, Wesley Dunning, Heather Green, B.A. Harrington, Chele Isaac, Chris McGinnis, Erika Osborne, Josh Reiman, Gwyneth Scally, and Meg Shevenock. McGinnis also served as the exhibits curator.

In addition to the exhibit, artist Heather Green will present a talk on October 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Room 118A of Sprowls Hall. Other events include a question and answer session with several artists on November 12 starting at 5:00 p.m. and a poetry reading by Patrick Bizarro and Wesley Dunning on November 20, also at 5:00 p.m.

Kipp Gallery is open from noon to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will be closed the week of Thanksgiving from November 24–30.
