SCULPTURE EXHIBITION OPENS CONCORDIA ACADEMIC YEAR
An art exhibition, “The Maker and The Machine: Computer-Generated Art by Four Sculptors,” will open at Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., Sunday, Aug. 30 and run through Sunday, Sept. 27 in the Cyrus M. Running Gallery. Minneapolis-based sculptors and Minneapolis College of Art and Design instructors Don Myhre, Leslie Kelman, Patrick Carmody and Patrick Brennen present sculpture created with advance computer-generated designs. A public reception in the gallery will be from 4:30-6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15 with a Gallery Talk by Don Myhre at 5 p.m.
The artists used Rapid-Prototype process and CNC technology, which utilizes computer-generated designs to produce sculpture. The exhibit showcases these techniques featuring a wide range of size, media and subject matter and shows how technology is changing and challenging traditional sculpting methods and the studio environment. The exhibit is held in conjunction with the 2009 Faith, Reason and World Affairs Symposium “Where is the We in an iWorld?” Sept. 15-16.
The gallery hours are 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. For more information call the Art Department at (218) 299-4623.
