SUArt Galleries presents “Sources and Structures: The Art of Robert Stackhouse”
Opening Thursday, Nov. 10, the SUArt Galleries presents the exhibition “Sources and Structures: The Art of Robert Stackhouse.” The exhibition will run through Jan. 22, 2012.
This 25-year retrospective, organized by the SUArt Galleries, surveys the development of Robert Stackhouse as an artist. In addition to investigating the roots of his best-known imagery- Viking ships, whales, snakes and wood A-frame constructs – this exhibition examines how he conceives of these designs through his drawings, watercolors and prints. “Sources and Structures” considers how Stackhouse has made a personal examination of these natural and man-made forms and developed a body of work that explores affinities between architecture and biological anatomy. Works for the exhibition have been lent by the John and Maxine Belger Family Foundation in Kansas City, Mo.
The show is free and open to the public. Complete information and related programming is available by visiting the exhibition website at http://suart.syr.edu.
The SUArt Galleries will host a free opening night reception from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10. Patrons are welcome to view the exhibition until the gallery closes at 8 p.m. The reception is open to the public.
The SUArt Galleries will also present “An Evening with Robert Stackhouse and Carol Mickett” on Thursday, Nov. 17, at 5 p.m. in the Slocum Auditorium, room 214. The event is free and open to the public
