REFLEXION - ArtPrize 2014
September 5 - October 12, 2014
ArtPrize is a "radically open competition" held in Grand Rapids, Michigan for two and a half weeks each fall. This year the Calvin College (106) Gallery presents, REFLEXION, an exhibition of nine ArtPrize artists whose artwork faithfully explore ways in which their art and process relate to reflexion – a bending back. They invite contemplation, ruminate on memory and identity, investigate properties of light, utilize the return of lines, consider the incomplete and ambiguous, and fix viewers thoughts on legacy. The artists approach this through various forms of traditional and non-traditional painting, printmaking, sculpture and installation that open new ways for the viewer to engage in art.
The artists are: Kathryn Trumbull Fimreite, Kate Gesel, Jamey Grimes, Shannon Mossing, Jeff Haase and Andrea Myers, Gosia Podosek, Betsy Stirratt, Jo-Ann Van Reeuwyk and Marissa Voytenko
