Artist Jon Lodge will lead a gallery walk-through of his exhibition, “Jon Lodge: Interface,” as part of his visit to the University of Wyoming April 17-19.
The gallery walk-through, which is free and open to the public, will take place Thursday, April 19, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the UW Art Museum. Following the walk-through, there will be a live materials demonstration in which Lodge will create a new work of art, “Modulated Modules,” in collaboration with museum visitors. Participants will be able to add to the work of art from April 19-June 22 or until materials run out.
“Jon Lodge: Interface” presents artwork by the artist, known for his unique approach to materials, process and places of connection. Lodge’s inspiration includes conceptual and minimalist artist Sol LeWitt, jazz and music composition, and the commercial printing industry.
Lodge is an artist who is motivated by the interface between process and material. His exhibition was composed by interfacing the stochastic -- or randomly determined -- process with carefully selected material. The exhibition, including the finished collaborative work of art, will be on view through Saturday, Aug. 11.
During his visit to UW, Lodge will participate in a seminar with students in “Advanced Drawing” and “3-D Modeling,” and also participate in a question-and-answer session with students in a senior portfolio class.
Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 7 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
