Each exhibit will feature 'Third Thursday Artist Talks and Receptions'
Artpark & Company announced the 2018 summer schedule of Artpark Gallery exhibits. A series of "Third Thursday Artist Talks and Receptions" will be offered from 6-8 p.m. in conjunction with each exhibit.
The Artpark Gallery is located across from the box office on the Mainstage Theater terrace. Admission and parking are free for the gallery and all talks and receptions (though a parking fee may apply during scheduled events). Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Saturdays, and during Mainstage Theater events.
Gallery shows, artist talks and receptions in the series include:
•"Terraformer," Brian Nacov
Now through June 27, with artist talk and reception June 14
Nacov uses painting as a medium to assemble fragmented landscapes untethered from solid ground. Through terraforming floating masses of stone, earth and vegetation, devoid of human figuration, he invites the viewer to explore territories with ambiguous histories and purposes. Included within these constructed realms are temples erected to forces both natural and sublime, utopic meadows, improbable geologic formations, and features inspired by and derived from game spaces. At times, these monolithic entities take on their own personality, conveying power, weakness or mysterious purpose. His work attempts to bridge the gap between descriptive illustration of landscape, referencing both real and virtual places and states of mind, and a traditional emphasis on illusionistic, pictorial space. What results is a style that conveys romanticized science fiction and fantasy pseudo-narratives - with a dash of transcendental mysticism - allowing viewers a nostalgic experience or the chance to build their own story, exploring a painting as they would a game.
•"Recent Fictions," Julian Montague
July 3-30, with artist talk and reception July 12
"Proposals," NC Miller
Aug. 1-Sept. 1, with artist talk and reception Aug. 23
