Racine Art Museum Presents Field of Vision: Artists Explore Place

. June 20, 2011 . 0 Comments

The Racine Art Museum presents Field of Vision: Artists Explore Place, on view now through October 2, 2011.

Our feelings or memories about a place are formed by how a location (beach, forest, field, building) feels, not just by how it looks. Details are often minimized by overall thoughts and impressions—sounds, textures, light, and smells. The nine artists represented in Field of Vision respond to and explore their perceptions of “place” through carved wax flowers, hanging plants made of porcelain paper clay, atmospheric paintings on mirrored glass, and jewelry referencing landscapes.

Artists whose works are featured in this exhibition include Olga de Amaral (Colombia), Nicole Chesney (RI), Lauren Fensterstock (ME), Mary Giles (MN), Sarah Hood (WA), Rebecca Hutchinson (MA), Jolynn Krystosek (NY), Harold O’Connor (CO) and Beverly Penn (TX).

Johnson & Son, Inc., The Hearst Foundation, Inc. and Windgate Charitable Foundation; Gold Sponsors – Helen Bader Foundation, Inc., National Endowment for the Arts, Racine Community Foundation, Inc., Racine United Arts Fund and Wisconsin Arts Board; Silver Sponsors – Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research, Osborne and Scekic Family Foundation, Real Racine and W.T.
