Lectures

Two New Exhibitions

When: Fri., March 31 2017

Located just east of MOCA Cleveland and the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Sculpture Center debuts two new exhibitions today. Opening with a reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m., these new exhibitions include Amy Ritter’s Behind a Hedge and John Dickinson’s Stepping Into/Stepping Over. Amy Ritter’s work is influenced by her upbringing in a mobile home community in Eastern Pennsylvania. Utilizing materials from her familiar surroundings, such as Xerox prints, plywood and cinder blocks, Ritter explores the relationship between three-dimensional spaces and two-dimensional images. Using self-portraiture, Ritter also challenges her audience’s preconceptions of gender. Ritter received a BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2009, before earning her MFA from the Ohio State University in 2014. Meanwhile, John Dickinson’s recent work explores issues of materiality, representation and scale, as well as how flat images and objects relate, through silicone molds created with architectural models. An Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Wright State University in Dayton, Dickinson received his BFA from Colorado State University in 2008 and his MFA from Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University in 2010. Tonight, both artists will discuss their work in the gallery, Dickinson in the Euclid Avenue Gallery at 6:15 p.m. and Ritter in the Main Gallery at 7 p.m. Admission is free. (Usmani)
