Opening Reception Friday, March 12, 2010 from 6:30–8:30 PM
Artist Talks at 6 PM
Tip Toe | Jonathan C. Leach & Ariane Roesch
Grace R. Cavnar Gallery
Jonathan C. Leach and Ariane Roesch transform the Travis Street entrance and the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery as a playce of transit through the use of colored light and fabric to create a structural dynamic that moves the viewer through this transitional space while creating spatial shifts and color vibration. Both artists’ individual practices focus on communication, architectural structures and human interaction. The site specific installation takes into account how visitors and staff move through the space during exhibitions and openings. The use of directional lines in both artists’ work traces pathways within space, serving not only a formal but also a symbolic function. For this collaboration, Leach and Roesch use a band of fabric rather than lines. Strings and wire will shape and pull taught the fabric to weave it through the hallway and gallery space.
