Seasonal Special Happenings

An Opening Reception

When: Fri., Feb. 5 2016

From 7 to 9 tonight, BAYarts hosts opening receptions for its latest exhibitions, Timothy Joyce’s Facing Forward and Shari Wilkins and John W. Carlson’s Destruction of Form. Joyce repurposes discarded materials to create his abstract portrait and figure drawings. Destruction of Form was initially exhibited at the Cleveland Print Room last year. The exhibition includes both collaborations and individual work by Wilkins and Carlson. Both found inspiration for this exhibition in vernacular photography; with Wilkins altering the surfaces to reconstruct the photos’ form and reconstruct the images, and Carlson creating accompanying paintings and drawings inspired by these found photos, but reinterpreting their creators original intent. Facing Forward remains on view in the Diane Boldman Education Gallery through Feb. 25. Destruction of Form remains on view through Feb. 29 in the Sullivan Family Gallery. Free. (Usmani)
