Gallery 6000 Opens the Printed Matters Exhibit

Posted Jan. 23, 2013

 
Kent State University at Stark is proud to host the Gallery 6000 exhibit, entitled Printed Matters. Gallery 6000 is a collaboration between local artists and Kent State Stark, showcasing art of various media throughout the year. The exhibit, which is open to the public, is displayed in The University Center Dining Room, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
 
Printed Matters features the unique visions of four local printmakers: Anna Rather, Nicole Schneider, Lesley Sickle and Emily Sullivan. The exhibit will be on display from February 5 through March 22, 2013. Most of the displayed pieces are for sale. The curator of Gallery 6000, Tom Wachunas, is an artist and adjunct instructor at Kent State Stark.
 
An opening reception will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The University Center. Please RSVP to Rebecca DeHart at 330-244-3518 or rdehart@kent.edu. The reception is free and open to the public. Representatives of the press are encouraged to attend.
 
Rather’s compositions are explosive, semi-abstracted and vibrantly colored, often with an oceanic theme. She calls her prints “an emotional diary realized in imagery.”
 
Schneider’s recent prints explore formal relationships between geometric form, line and color. The imagery evokes tensions and balances between particular states of mind and emotion.
 
Sickle’s layered abstractions juxtapose printed organic and geometric shapes. Her intimate objects of cut, bent and/or folded paper capture the shadows of forms in nature, as well as man-made structures.
 
The interdisciplinary work of Sullivan’s is constructed from a hybrid of screen printing, sculpture and digital photography. Her pieces focus on issues of consumerism, marketing practices and the human propensity for personalizing environments.
