Department of Art To Host “Tharn” Exhibit Featuring Local Artists

January 19, 2016

ALLIANCE, Ohio - The University of Mount Union’s Department of Art is currently featuring “Tharn...Or everything’s a Remix” through Feb. 19 in the Sally Otto Art Gallery, located in the Giese Center for the Performing Arts.

The gallery features the works of artists Jim Pernotto and Terry Fetchet, both of Youngstown, Ohio.

Pernotto is presenting his graphics work, highlighted by “The Fourth of May” and Fetchet is displaying his various assemblages. The duo first met in their hometown in the early 1980’s, when they took on a new studio together in a downtown warehouse.

“Tharn” is their first exhibit together in more than 30 years. Their first collaboration was in 1985 when they were involved with “Entropy; No Thanks, I’m Driving” at the SPACES Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio.

The artists’ reception will take place Thursday, Jan. 28 from 4-6 p.m. at The Sally Otto Art Gallery with the artists’ talk beginning at 4:30 p.m.

The Sally Otto Art Gallery is open every day from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. For more information on the event, contact Gallery Coordinator Carol Opatken at (330)-823-4968 or by email at opatkec@mountunion.edu.
