Polk Museum of Art announces No Ordinary Days: Works by Maggie Taylor
Polk Museum of Art announces No Ordinary Days: Works by Maggie Taylor an exhibition on view January 19-April 20, 2013.
Artist Maggie Taylor combines history and imagination. The worlds she lays out in her digital creations include familiar imagery taken from found objects and 19th century daguerreotypes, which she scans and manipulates in her Gainesville, FL studio. Although she retains aspects of their original content, she converts their historical and mysterious significances into something of sophisticated fantasy. This exhibition will be a survey of Taylor’s work and will coincide with the release of her new book, No Ordinary Days.
Members’ Reception: 6 pm-8:30pm, Friday, January 18, 2013
