Hollis Hammonds: Worthless Matter

Thursday, February 13, 5-7pm. Free and open to the public.

Reed Gallery, DAAP Complex

Exploring consumerist culture through evidence of accumulation, hoarding and collecting; piles of buildings, chairs and trash permeate the works of Hollis Hammonds. Since her childhood, a seemingly endless stream of tornadoes, floods and hurricanes, have inspired her work, as drifts of rubble lay in their wake. Ranging from documentary studies of storms and storm damage to sculptural wall drawings of crashing waves, her works often illustrate imaginary piles of debris left after fictional, natural, and man-made disasters. 


Worthless Matter spans several years of creative work dealing with memory, material consumption, waste, catastrophe and superficial loss.

Hal Lasko: The Pixel Painter

February 3-March 30

DAAP Galleries: Philip M. Meyers Jr. Memorial Gallery

DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati is pleased to present „The Pixel Painter,‰ the first solo exhibition of artist Hal Lasko, on view from February 3 through March 30, 2013 in DAAP Galleries Philip M. Meyers, Jr. Memorial Gallery. 

Hal Lasko, a „Lettering Man‰ by trade, began working in commercial art studios as a typographer in the 1930s and continued to do so for most of his professional career, eventually retiring from American Greetings in 1980s where he had worked as a lettering consultant. In his personal life, Lasko enjoyed oil and watercolor painting and created more than fifty original works between 1948 and 1994. In the late ‚90s Lasko received a computer from his grandson Ryan and began doing works on the computer for enjoyment. Since being diagnosed with Wet Macular Degeneration, Lasko‚s computer has become no longer a toy but an essential tool allowing him to continue to create. Using Microsoft Paint he enlarges sections of his works and paints them pixel by pixel. Having no desire to disguise the nature of his work, Lasko has developed a modern-day pointillist style, creating works ranging from abstract designs to landscapes and still lifes. 

At age 98 Lasko exemplifies the creative spirit and the power of art to stimulate the mind and nurture the soul. Please join us in celebrating the life, work, and spirit of Hal Lasko in this inspiring exhibition.

Prairie



Jeremy Johnson returns to Prairie for his second show, this time collaborating with Aaron Kent, to fill the gallery space with taxidermy, mixed media and installation. Works in the show all bear some relation to traditional practices of natural history in which plants and animals were collected, dissected and presented in various displays for educational purposes. Included in this show is a mating display of Great Malaysian Argus Pheasants as well as a work station installed atop an early 1900's roll top desk showcasing pieces in process to provide the viewer a better understanding of traditional practices used during the Victorian age. 

Aaron Kent presents works of a more contemporary nature featuring sculpture casts from bone forms. His work will also include a range of molds and process work on modern work surfaces as a counterpoint to Johnson's highly finished work. Kent's work explores the natural cycle of deterioration and regeneration of new life.

Opening Reception on Saturday October 12th from 7-9pm.

"Reverberant Extracts"
Wednesday, September 25th @ 5:00pm in 4400 (DAAP)

School of Art - Visiting Artist Lecture Series presents: Riley Harmon, School of Art visiting artist Fall 2013, examines multiple layers of reality and representation through appropriating and detouring popular media such as films, video games, and television. He reverse-engineers social and personal narratives and the final outputs are hyperreal videos, objects, and performance that often blur the separation between art and everyday life, as well as fantasy and reality. In this lecture he will present his solo and collaborative experiments in sound, performance, theatre, motion graphic design, and technology.

College Lecture Series with assistance from the Agnes Croll Blackburne Visiting Artist and Scholars fund and the Elise Zeller Sauer Fund for Fine Arts.
