Join us at the Opening Reception for Edge of Perception on Saturday, August 19 from 6-8pm. This exhibition features sculptural mixed media and installation works by local artists Mallory Feltz and Emily Bruns that examine the often overlooked subtleties of our immediate surroundings.
Mallory Feltz’s work is a contemplation of the quirky multilayered complexities of home and family life. Her sculptures and installations focus on domestic objects and symbols of our home environments. Her work teeters on the edge of comfort and discomfort – forcing viewers to examine their relationship to objects and what those objects mean.
Emily Bruns’ graphite drawings and cut Mylar sculptures quietly explores how we experience light and the environment. Her work uses very little color to help quiet any distractions, allowing the viewer to focus on the lines and edges of the work. For Bruns, “art making is a meditative process that begins with tracing a shadow’s edge. I repeat the process as the sun and time provide me with new place for my pencil to follow.” Her work is about time, meditation, endurance, and the ebb and flow of life.
The artists met at the University of Cincinnati when both were pursuing a BFA in Sculpture. Feltz went on to receive an MFA in Sculpture from Louisiana State University and now serves as KHAC’s Arts Education Coordinator. Bruns earned her MAE from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and currently works as the Art Teacher at Roger Bacon High School.
The show runs through September 24, 2017. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday, 11am to 4pm.
