Mount Union College's Crandall Art Gallery Features Work of Nancy Hart
April 22, 2010
"Mixed Media Work," by artist Nancy Hart, an assistant professor in the art department of Mount Union College, will be on display in Crandall Art Gallery from February 9 through March 1. An artist's reception will be held Saturday, February 9th from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The collection includes earlier works, such as a series of drawings and paintings that reflect Hart's interest in the geometry of architecture and the effects of light in interior spaces. The second body of work, "Sacred Science Series," includes collages and reliefs that reveal the parallels between art and science.
In describing the "Sacred Science Series," Hart says she included "black and white photographs of a friend, a physicist, posing with instruments." This collage is more precise, reflecting the exactness of science.
It reflects my awe and wonderment at science," explains Hart.
The "Mixed-Media Works" reflects Hart's interest in interiors, which she says began while living in Richmond, Virginia.
"In many of the drawings, I am interested in creating an ambiguous time of day. When I use windows with landscapes in the drawings, the landscapes are more suggested. Forms are also abstracted, showing more distortion," says Hart.
Crandall Art Gallery is located within Cope Music Hall, on the corner of Simpson Street and Union Avenue.
