Erin Wiersma: Solo Exhibition

  • June 8- Aug. 23
  • Closing Reception: Thursday, Aug. 22, 4:30 p.m.
  • Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery

Erin Wiersma practice as an artist has progressed from observing the tangible human form, to the physical representation of herself in relationship to the surface, to most recently expressing the emotional and intangible aspects that make up being. With large surfaces to paint on, engaging the scale of her whole body, she is able to use her physical energy and manipulate materials to approach things beyond her edges, to catch a glimmer of something ineffable. Mapping her body’s movement, time is manifested within individual marks, their presence on the surfaces become intertwined layers and untraceable histories, departing from linear interaction of past, present and future.

This is What Makes Us Girls

  • Karen Ann Myers
  • Aug. 29- Sept. 27
  • Opening Reception: Thursday, Aug. 29, 4:30 p.m.
  • Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery

This exhibit features works by Karen Ann Myers, who investigates the psychological complexity of women through intimate observations in the bedroom in her paintings. The work is inspired by the cult of beauty in contemporary mass media. Intricately painted, decorative interiors are invented to titillate the viewer. Her work explores the idea of female desire with subjects that display powerful, confident gazes made more erotic by the sexual context in which they are placed.
