Kipp Gallery opens its next exhibit October
30, 2014, with The Mountain and the Bumble Bee. Featuring a variety of art
and poetry, the exhibit will run through December 5. Admission is free. Kipp
Gallery is located on the first floor of Sprowls Hall on the IUP campus.
The Mountain and the Bumble Bee brings
together selected works by contemporary artists and poets who confront broadly
defined notions of landscape as both cultural icon and raw material. The
exhibit contains a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting,
digital, and poetic verse.
The featured artists maneuver the complex web
of references contributing to our understanding of landscape. Scenes from
Hollywood Westerns abut survey photographs and miniature paintings to highlight
America’s often‐contradictory role as both steward and exploiter of the land
are among the subjects to be explored.
Participating visual artists and poets include Rick
Barot, Patrick Bizarro, Robin Clarke, Mathew Conboy, Todd Davis, Wesley
Dunning, Heather Green, B.A. Harrington, Chele Isaac, Chris McGinnis, Erika
Osborne, Josh Reiman, Gwyneth Scally, and Meg Shevenock. McGinnis also served
as the exhibits curator.
In addition to the exhibit, artist Heather Green
will present a talk on October 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Room 118A of Sprowls Hall.
Other events include a question and answer session with several artists on
November 12 starting at 5:00 p.m. and a poetry reading by Patrick Bizarro and Wesley
Dunning on November 20, also at 5:00 p.m.
Kipp Gallery is open from noon to 4:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, and will be closed the week of Thanksgiving from November
