Adrian College, Adrian, MI- September 28, 2016
Valade Gallery at Adrian College announces the opening of its sculpture exhibition, The Matter at Hand. The exhibition showcases the work of three regional artists, including Carolyn Clayton, Shane Darwent, and Dylan Spaysky.
The show is on display and open to the public from Wednesday, September 28 through Tuesday, October 25th. A reception will be held on Tuesday, October 4th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The artists will be present, and will participate in a question and answer panel at 6 pm.
The Matter at Hand is a regional show of interdisciplinary work exploring the formal and material aspects of objects and the weight of their lived experience. The accessible materials that litter our lives can tell us about our attachments, our constructs, and our place. Carolyn Clayton, Shane Darwent, and Dylan Spaysky use similar materials in singular ways, making prescient work about our present time. The ordinary and often overlooked are ripe with potential, waiting to be seen, mined, and celebrated. Carolyn Clayton is the recent recipient of the prestigious Dedalus Foundation Master of Fine Arts Fellowship. Dylan Spaysky, based in Detroit, was a 2015 CUE Art Foundation exhibiting artist. Shane Darwent recently undertook an international media project, resulting in a solo exhibition in Michoacan, Mexico and film screening at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Please join us in celebrating these esteemed artists and their exciting work.
Valade Gallery is located in Shipman Library, on Williams Street on the Adrian College Campus. Free street parking is available. Gallery open hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, with extended hours on Tuesday until 7 pm. The gallery will be closed during Fall Break at Adrian College, from Friday, 10/7 - Tuesday, 10/11. Regular gallery hours will resume Wednesday, 10/12.
