Craft Alliance Grand Center: Friday, 23 April 2010

Perceiving Sensibility
FREE Opening Reception on Friday, April 23, 6-8pm

Each year, in its ongoing commitment to support emerging artists in the St. Louis community, Craft Alliance (CA) invites MFA (Master of Fine Arts) students from area universities to submit a proposal for a month-long exhibition in its Grand Center gallery in the Kranzberg Arts Center. The proposed exhibition must present a site-specific installation in contemporary craft materials. Washington University St. Louis MFA candidate Carlie Trosclair has been selected for this year’s exhibition, titled Perceiving Sensibility, which opens on Friday, April 23.

In Perceiving Sensibility, Trosclair explores our relationship with man-made structures and the effect of time on these structures. By using fabric, light, color and movement, her installation seems to be in a constant state of change, revealing multiple layers of architectural skin with each transformation. These transitional stages allude to the passing of time and the beauty of decay. At the same time, they provide the viewer the elements to create the narrative of the piece based on their perception of the structure’s past, present, and future states of being.

Gallery Hours: Wednesday–Saturday, noon–6pm; Sunday, noon–5pm, Closed Monday and Tuesday.
