Overture Galleries Fall Exhibition Reception
Fri, Oct 4
Promenade Lounge: Free
Ages 6 and up
Join us for a Fall 2019 Overture Galleries Exhibition Reception FRI, OCT 4, 2019 from 6 PM – 8 PM. Fall galleries include:
Playhouse Gallery – Phoenix Rising
The Phoenix from the Ashes exhibit highlights creative projects made from Madison ash trees decimated by the emerald ash borer infestation.
Gallery I – Swept Away – Aaron Laux & Katherine Steichen Rosing
Using the circle as a symbol of earth and eternity, Swept Away weaves a narrative of climate change. A rich tapestry of natural materials and impressions of ephemeral objects explore the effects of human disruptions to the equilibrium of the biosphere.
Gallery II – Multiplicity of Being – Anwar Floyd-Pruitt & Xiaoyue Pu
Floyd-Pruitt and Pu explore themes of identity, society, and culture through portraiture. Floyd-Pruitt’s energetic mixed media self-portraits reflect on his past, present and future. Pu is a photographer whose images challenge elitism within the fashion industry and explore the multifaceted identity as Chinese through her use of the color red.
Gallery III – Unstill Lifes – Yeonhee Cheong & Jayne Reid Jackson
Yeonhee Cheong and Jayne Reid Jackson are artists who use their technical skill to transform everyday scenes into rich metaphors. Using watercolor and pastel, Cheong grapples with her identity in botanical self-portraits. Jackson’s mezzotints and etchings are literally and figuratively reflective, speaking to the fragility of life.
Overture Galleries are sponsored by Norman Berven & Barbara Mittelstaedt Berven, The Arts Access Fund, a component fund of the Madison Community Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.
