Three Faculty Featured in 'Soft Geometries'
Three Kent State University School of Art faculty members are being featured in the exhibition Soft Geometries, curated by Andrea Myers, professor of art at the Stark Campus. The exhibit of works by seven artists at Hammond Harkins Galleries is in celebration of the gallery’s 20th Anniversary. Featured faculty included are Gianna Commito, Peter Christian Johnson, and Andrea Myers.
Inspired by the idea of the “soft grid,” curator Andrea Myers selected works that combine structures of analytical systems with the subtleties of subjective, human experience. The centerpiece of this exhibit will be a collaboration by Myers and Haase of a room-size installation composed of industrial shrink-wrap and a giant metronome. Paintings, sculptures, and works in other mediums will also be on view.
The exhibition features works by Gianna Commito, Jean Alexander Frater, Jeffrey Haase, Peter Christian Johnson, Jason Karolak, Andrea Myers, and Boryana Rusenova-Ina. Soft Geometries will be on view from October 6 – November 12, 2017 at Hammond Harkins Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
