| Paintings and sculptures featured in new art exhibit at Berea College
Still-life paintings by Dick Daugherty and mixed-media sculptures by Robin Taffler are featured in a new art exhibit through March 25 at Berea College.
“As the recent paintings have emerged I find my content focusing on small quirky human-like gestures of the individuals in the paintings,” says Dougherty. “I am also starting to understand how important brushstroke is in the development of form and how those elements of the object's gesture and the brushstroke in the painting affect a viewer's intimacy with the image.”
“They [mixed media sculptures] address things that I often want to complain about, laugh at, make fun of or hide from... part of the flow of the everyday,” says Taffler. “They are things that friends and I talk about, things that we all know about on some level. The trophies are meant to celebrate, whine a bit, all the while poking fun at what we might view as the never ending cycle of frustrating normal life predicaments.”
The artists will host a reception and discussion about their work from 4-6 p.m. on February 22.
The exhibit can be viewed in Doris Ulmann Galleries in Traylor Art Building at the intersection of Ellipse and Chestnut Street on Berea’s campus. Gallery hours are Monday-Wednesday 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Thursday 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
