Duo to exhibit in art show at Rockford College
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
For immediate release – 2/23/10
Contact: Rockford College box office, 815-226-4100
An exhibit by artists Cedar Marie and Rachel Bruya Walker entitled "Finding Place” is slated at Rockford College from March 5 – 28 in the college’s art gallery.
The exhibit investigates material culture from the perspectives of the two artists. Bruya Walker creates miniature environments from fragments of memory that depict a place that is not clearly real or imagined, freeing the viewer in a state of inquiry. Marie, meanwhile, creates forms that both mimic and alter cultural objects and their functions.
An artist talk will be held March 19 at 6 p.m., followed by a reception at 8:30 p.m. The talk and reception are free and open to the public.
Art gallery hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon – 3 p.m.; and Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. The gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays. For more information, call the Rockford College box office, phone 815-226-4100, or see www.rockford.edu/?page=ArtGallery.
