Sculptural Mixed Media by Janice Jakielski, Warren Mather and Janice Redman

Location: Trustman Art Gallery, 4th floor, Main College Building

Join us for the opening reception for Not Really Practical, an exhibit of sculptural mixed media at the Trustman Art Gallery. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

This exhibit wittily examines objects gone awry. The artists contravene our expectations concerning utility and materials. We tend to associate certain media, such as ceramics, with practical craft. But Warren Mather and Janice Jakielski claim the media and re-purpose it for their own conceptual ends. Jakielski and Janice Redman co-opt domesticity and its association with practicality. Apparel and utensils are intentionally rendered unusable through sculptural transformation. These strategies make us consider the homely and conversely, the frustrations these items of material culture impose.

Trustman Gallery hours are 10 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Not Really Practical will be on exhibit from November 9-December 14. The gallery will be closed on November 11 and 25-27. The gallery and reception are free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible.
