MURRAY, Ky. — University Galleries and the department of art & design at Murray State University are pleased to present “Dual Current: Inseparable Elements in Painting and Architecture,” a collection of art on display in a new on-campus exhibit.
The exhibit will be open from Jan. 16 through Feb. 22 in both the Clara M. Eagle Main Gallery and the Eagle Upper Gallery, which are both located in the Price Doyle Fine Arts Building on Murray State’s campus. Curated by the artist Gabriele Evertz, “Dual Current” examines the relationship between painting and architecture, intertwined since the Renaissance, in a contemporary context through color, shape and theory. The works of artists featured in “Dual Current” link three-dimensional space and the picture plane to create radical new forms.
Artists featured in this exhibition include:
- Josef Albers (American, born in Germany, 1888–1976)
- Matthew Deleget (American, born 1972)
- Peter Dudek (American, born 1952)
- Cris Gianakos (Greek-American, born 1934)
- Michelle Grabner (American, born 1962)
- Peter Halley (American, born 1953)
- Lynne Harlow (American, born 1968)
- Changha Hwang (Korean, born 1969)
- Russell Maltz (American, born 1952)
- Rossana Martinez (Puerto Rican, born 1969)
- Kristine Marx (American, born 1969)
- Manfred Mohr (German, born 1938)
Kristine Marx, one of the collection’s featured artists, will visit Murray State to meet with students and present an artist talk Friday, Jan. 26, at 2 p.m. in room 623 on the sixth floor of the Price Doyle Fine Arts Building.
Admission to both the overall exhibit and Marx’s talk is free and open to the public.
