Reese Gallery: Friday, 18 November 2016
Opening Reception: Friday November 18th from 6pm to 9pm
In PAST | PRESENT, two artists revisit icons of the nation's past as they create a more meaningful present. Printmaker and painter, KYLE GALLUP (NY), explores the Wonder Wheel, built in the 1920s at the Coney Island amusement park. A fantastic symbol of industry, the Ferris wheel also suggests the wheel of life as a mandala that is "silent, ghostly, noisy and whole". Sculptor PETE HALLADAY (CO), heads west for his inspiration, as he investigates the horse as a symbol of bygone days - a symbol that still informs our American identity. HALLADAY builds with found objects, integrating the vocabulary of the past into the forms of his work, touching upon freedom, conquest, movement, awkward grace, heavy use and wisdom gained from long experience. Both artists bring a whimsical sense of wonder to the exhibit.
Artists will be present at the opening. There will be light refreshment at this event which is free and open to the public. Reese Gallery is located in the Cherokee Arts Neighborhood, just off of Antique Row.
