Event Dates: Feb. 21 - Apr. 14, 2017.
In our Gallery V, as a companion show to the Tim Hawkinson solo in the Boone Family Art Gallery, we present this group show of artists whose works re-envision function, recasting materials into new, unexpected roles in artworks that embody a strong textural or tactile aspect in their materiality as they are reinvented from their original mundane or cast-off status. At times bridging sculpture and painting, these repurposed media enjoy a new life, giving us pause to consider that art fodder is all around us if we can embrace a fresh perspective and open our minds to the possibilities around us.
