UNRAVELING: AN INSTALLATION BY MADELINE MOSER
Local artist and Western Alum Madeline Moser returns to the VU Gallery to create a grand scale installation of stunning feat. Moser explores themes of transformation, disorientation, and malaise through sinuous and volcanic threads combusting and contorting into warps of chaos.
The sculpture artist will be discussing this ephemeral piece in an artist talk on January 6th at 5pm followed by a reception with light refreshments. The installation remains on display until January 24th.
LUSH: WORKS BY HEIDI GRACE ACUÑA
The VU Gallery proudly presents LUSH, a solo show comprised of works by Seattle artist Heidi Grace Acuña.
The multidisciplinary artist crafts work that explores their relationship with culture, location, and gender. Acuña explores dualities of acceptance and confusion, body and soul, beauty and pain, traditions and modernity. The materials of paper, cardboard, fabric, and clay mimic the characteristics of being strong and fragile, simple and complex, common and unique.
LUSH will be on display at the VU Gallery in VU 507 from October 26th through November 29th. There will be a reception and artist talk with Acuña on October 26th at 6pm featuring free snacks & refreshments.
