Marywood University School of Architecture Faculty Exhibition
January 17 – February 8, 2020
An exhibition of diverse visual, material, spatial, or haptic explorations produced by the faculty of the Marywood University School of Architecture. These speculations, often architectural - sometimes not, represent our varied interests in designed environments. From furniture to mapping; from abstract to actual, we showcase the ways Architects and Interior Architects think through the act of making.
Peter Hoffer: Transformations, Recent Mixed Media Work
January 17 – February 8, 2020
Completed in the past year and not previously exhibited, this current grouping represents Peter Hoffer’s continuing exploration of mixed media collage and related approaches. Originating as relief block prints, fragments are transformed in combination with drawing and painting applications yielding images both lively and stylistically complex.
Material Structures: Select Paintings from The Maslow Collection
January 17 – March 1, 2020.
The focus of this selection is large scale paintings that are literally and obviously “constructed.” They operate, not as windows into an imaginary space, but as presences that radiate out into the viewers space. They are built out of various materials so as to reveal evidence of their own creation. Employing simple compositional devices like the grid, the rectangle, the triangle, these works declare their existence as poetic objects that explore the expressive potential of fundamental structures, while emphatically celebrating the physicality of the painting process.
Featured artists include: James Biederman, Howard Buchwald, Tad Wiley, and Thornton Willis
Co-curated by: Steven Alexander, Professor of Visual Art and Ryan Ward, Curator, The Maslow Collection
