Last day for art exhibit ‘Clear and Present’ is TODAY
“Clear and Present” is the current exhibit in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art. The exhibit, which features artwork by Kristin Bauer and Paul Owen Weiner, dissects the visual vocabulary of language through a continuum of printed words from the concrete to the unknowable.
Based in Tempe, Arizona, Bauer builds sculptural assemblages that layer text within strata of polymer pigment and plexiglass. They create visual abstractions and transfer new meaning into fixed language. Weiner, of Denver, frames prints of legislative documents and executive orders under distressed and decimated glass surfaces. The redacted transparency incites limitations of expression during times of duress.
“Clear and Present” runs through Friday, March 2 from noon to 5 p.m., in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of the Art.
Admission to the exhibition is free, and the public is welcome.
