Edge City--OSU Art Exhibition
Friday, October 11, 2013
11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Presented By: OSU Mansfield
The Pearl Conard Art Gallery at The Ohio State University Mansfield is proud to present Edge City, an exhibition by artist Amanda Burnham, Tuesday October 1 – Friday October 25, 2013. Burnham, who was born in Toledo, Ohio, makes drawings and drawing installations based on her explorations of and encounters with the city. Often working on site, outside or in her car, she reads the landscape for found fragments of language and records the poetics of vacant lots, moveable type signs, billboards, and rowhouses with ink and other water media on paper. She often pieces fragments together in a cumulative manner not unlike the way the urban landscape is collectively authored over time. She expands upon these explorations in her drawing installations by reassembling drawn fragments of landscape with explicit layering and visibly taped and sutured seams. The resulting spaces call to mind their sources while also describing a new landscape vision, forged as the found pieces are adapted to the site against which they have been displaced.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday, 11am- 4pm; Friday, 11am – 1:30pm
Public reception Tuesday October 1, 1:30 – 3:00 pm with gallery talk at 2:00 pm
