Current Season

Due to COVID-19, Carthage Fine Arts has put event protocols in place to protect the health of our guests, students, and employees. 

Sept. 8-Oct. 15, 2021

Join us for the exhibit “Natural History” from Wednesday, Sept. 8 through Friday, Oct. 15.“Natural History”

H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

Iris Bernblum’s work explores ideas around human nature, power, and vulnerability, focusing on the way we frame our sense of self as it relates to gender, sexuality, shame, and desire. Jessie Mott’s practice encompasses painting, drawing, collage, sculptural objects, video and installation that speak to a dreamlike or nightmarish quality of fantasy and the grotesque.

Attend the opening reception from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art.

 

Oct. 27-Dec. 5, 2021

Join us for the exhibit “Declassified” from Wednesday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec. 5.“Declassified”

H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

Aaron Delehanty’s practice consists of two perspectives: as a staff artist at a natural history museum, and as a studio artist playing with ideas of taxonomy and the systematization of the natural world. Lan Tuazon’s sculptural work, which includes architecture, artifacts, and anthropogenic materials (human effects on the environment), takes on ecology that humbles human culture to the planetary scale of nature.

Attend the opening reception from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art.

H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

Noah Kashiani’s sculptures employ up-cycled materials from local thrift stores — a testament to high fashion, placing emphasis on materialism and late capitalism. Kelly Reaves’ paintings are driven by a fascination with the natural world and a hyperactive inner dialogue. The process-driven, intuitive work is the tangible product of meditation, intended to clear the mind.

Attend the opening reception for this exhibit from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art.
