Creativity and craftsmanship on display at Schick Art Faculty Exhibition
The Schick Art Gallery’s annual Selected Art Faculty Exhibition opens Thursday, Sept. 12, and runs through Oct. 13.
This year’s faculty artists — Lindsay Buchman, Kate Leavitt, David Peterson and Matt Wilt — explore themes such as time and space, the history of women’s justice and the body with mediums ranging from metal and wood to ceramics. The four will participate in a gallery talk from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, in the gallery, located inside the Saisselin Art Building.
The 2019 exhibition appeals to a variety of interests. Lindsay Buchman’s thought-provoking work combines printmaking, photography, artist books and installation while Skidmore printmaker Kate Leavitt’s work exudes meticulous care and evocative associations. Known for the craftsmanship of his work, David Peterson showcases works in metal and wood which he says “has drawn me back to basics: hammer on metal, chisel on wood. Like a tightrope walker without a net, I have found this leaves very little margin for error.” For those seeking something humorous and slightly unnerving, Matt Wilt offers an examination of “the body and its uneasy union with the artificial or mechanical” through ceramics.
Schick Art Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday; and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
