“Curiosities and Things of Wonder” Art Exhibit

Time: December 3, 2013

Location: H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

The H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art presents “Curiosities and Things of Wonder” Nov. 12-Jan. 25, with breaks over Thanksgiving and Christmas. An opening reception will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, in conjunction with Carthage College’s Christmas Festival.

This exhibit features work by Beth Lipman, Lori Nix, Steve Jones, Stephanie Trenchard, Michael Velliquette, and Betsy Youngquist. The artists will be present at the opening reception.

See works of all media. Beth Lipman’s blown-glass installation defies gravity as a tower of delicate glass fragments cascades from the ceiling to the floor of the gallery wall. Lori Nix’s photographs reveal minute worlds of spellbinding detail. Steven Jones’ vivid paintings of books suggest the allure of the imaginary worlds of literary invention. Stephanie Trenchard’s hand-cast glass sculptures depict fascinating compartments of delicate remembrances. Michael Velliquette’s vibrantly colored, hand-cut paper creatures are dynamic expressions of frantic energies. Betsy Youngquist’s mixed media sculptures of hybrid creatures, often part doll and part animal, are much like the strange things found in the cabinets of curiosities of old. Read a review of the show here.
