Memphis College of Art Announces Blurring Dimensions
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis College of Art announces the opening of Blurring Dimensions on Aug. 14 at Hyde Gallery in the Nesin Graduate Center, 477 S. Main St. An opening reception will be held on Aug. 30 from 6-9 p.m. during the South Main Trolley Night. The exhibition will be on view until Sept. 20.
Blurring Dimensions showcases diverse artwork that explores the use of mixed media to blur the line between our perceived and traditional notions of two- and three-dimensional art. Artists featured in the exhibition are Jonathan Auger, Gregory Euclide, Adam Farmer, Rebekah Laurenzi, Cedar Lorca Nordbye, Claudia Santillan, Amanda Sparks and Travis Townsend.
Cat Peña, MCA’s coordinator for exhibitions and lectures, brought her own artistic sensibilities to bear as curator of Blurring Dimensions. “As an artist whose work often relies on the tension created between the idea and the physical object, I am excited to share the work of both local and national artists whose approach to blurring dimensional boundaries may be formally similar, yet conceptually diverse.”
Hyde Gallery is open Wednesday–Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. On Trolley Nights, Hyde Gallery is also open 6–9 p.m. All of MCA’s galleries are open to the public, and admission is free.
Memphis College of Art provides a rigorous curriculum in an intimate, diverse community to empower generations of leading artists, designers and educators to flourish professionally and contribute valuable ideas to society.
