CCU art gallery mounts mixed-media summer exhibition

  Drawing #5, Theresa Hackett, Flashe Paint, colored pencil, and Rives De Lin paper, 2009  
A mixed-media exhibition, "Dionaea Muscipula: The Work of Theresa Hackett," has opened in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Gallery at Coastal Carolina University and will continue through Aug. 26. A closing reception, including a talk with the artist, will be held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25. The exhibit, show and talk are free and open to the public.

Hackett, a New York-based contemporary artist, presents her hybrid, abstract landscapes and juxtaposed, mixed-media sculptures. Each painting has its own presence as it climbs gracefully up the gallery wall. "My paintings are sequences of illusions of textures that change as viewing distances change," says Hackett.

Using mixed media including Flashe paint, Rives De Lin paper and colored pencil, these works, which Hackett calls collages, have a scroll-like presence, each piece finding a contemporary way of revisiting and recreating the traditional landscape painting. Using images of fabric, wood and windows, Hackett looks for mediums that represent the form of the grid or repetition. The artist uses materials that contain a representation of what she calls ordered chaos. "The materials I use are in constant textural tension that emanates a bipolar resolve," she says.

The Rebecca Randall Bryan Gallery is located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, room 129. Gallery summer hours are: Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday , 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For more information, call Rachel Harris-Beck, exhibitions coordinator, at 843-349-6454 or visit the website at: www.coastal.edu/bryanartgallery.
