The Earlville Galleries at the Earlville Opera House are proud to host artist Nate Hodge Saturday September 17 at 1 PM for a free artist’s talk in conjunction with his exhibition Adaptations.
Over the last decade graffiti/street art has gained wide-spread popularity and institutional legitimacy on an international scale. Hodge’s lecture will focus on this contemporary muralist movement, and its impact on high art institutions as well as communities and residents, who may have little to no artistic background.
Hodge’s exhibition Adaptations features abstracted paintings reflecting upon a lack of equilibrium in our universe, on view September 10 through October 29, 2016 alongside Gregory T. Davis and Ed Smith.
With Impermanence of Knowledge, Gregory T. Davis’ fine art photography examines issues of information and knowledge, exploring the decay of access that comes from the inherently temporary nature of the message’s medium. Rounding out the trio is the Arts Café exhibition by Ed Smith, Sculptures and Drawings, a meditation on society’s “outsiders.” Together, the three individual artists present a complex view of contemporary society. Additionally, Hodge will give a lecture Saturday September 17 at 1 PM, contextualizing his work within the new Muralist movement, free and open to the public.
Hodge’s lecture is entirely free and open to the public, and will start at 1 PM on Saturday September 17. The exhibitions run September 10 through October 29, Tuesday through Friday from 10-5 PM and Saturdays from 12-3 PM. Admission to the Earlville Galleries is free, though donations are appreciated, and the Opera House is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.
