artdc Gallery Presents: Coverage
Sabeth Jackson▪ Megan Mueller▪ Samuel Scharf
July 17, 2010 – August 15, 2010
Opening Reception: July 17, 2010 – 6pm – 8pm
Artist Lecture: July 24, 2010 – 6pm – 8pm
artdc Gallery presents a group exhibition of works that explore coverage with relationship to the body, geography, and memory. Accumulating gestures and layers, while referencing the passage of time, these artists present works of sculpture, painting, printmaking and drawing. Sabeth Jackson’s work chronicles domestic themes and uses archetypal and culturally charged imagery to communicate emotions and stories. Megan Mueller finds inspiration in the architecture of tents and the lifestyles of the transient to investigate the idea of permission. Samuel Scharf explores the physicality of movement, collection and deconstruction.
