(from the press release)
Each January, Abecedarian Gallery promotes the work of student and emerging artists. This year, exhibiting in the main gallery is the work of two emerging artists, Andrea Crane and Danielle Vogel. Both artists have been working at Abecedarian Gallery since early 2011. In the Reading Room Denver newcomer Max Maddox is exhibiting.
Andrea Crane – Triggers
Andrea Crane is a mixed media artist using various techniques to create sculptural books. Her work is inspired by family events; she recreates memories of those methods with a variety of methods. Recent works have successfully paired plexi-glass constructions with modestly scaled books, Her use of this clear material as backdrop effectively insinuates a “clear remembrance” of the past. Her work triggers the viewers memory into recalling past events which make her art both personable and unique. Andrea currently resides in Golden, Colorado with her husband David and dog Larry.
Danielle Vogel – The Amniotics of Seeing
Danielle earned her MFA in Writing & Poetics at Naropa University and is currently a PhD candidate at University of Denver. She is the author of the chapbooks, lit, and the forthcoming, Incest Survivors' After Effects Checklist. Her writing has most recently appeared in The Denver Quarterly, Tarpaulin Sky, Trickhouse, and Caketrain. In this exhibit she will show her textile scroll-works and ceramic book artifacts, which explore the ceremonial gestation of a manuscript as it is written. A sister show to The Amniotics of Seeing, A Compendium of Intentional Inversions, will be exhibited at The University of Arizona Poetry Center’s Poetry off the Page Symposium in May 2012.
In the Reading Room : Max Maddox - Minta
Exhibiting for the first time in Denver, Max Maddox will occupy the Reading Room with Minta, an exhibition of collage and assemblage. Not unlike the bowerbird, a creature which collects related objects in its nest to attract a mate, Maddox arranges found objects and ephemera so as to seduce us into a relationship with him through a re-presentation of cultural media.
