“Mutations and (Re)Locations” Art Exhibit by Montgomery College Faculty Member on Display March 12 to April 1 in the Silberman Gallery
The Sarah Silberman Art Gallery at Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus will present “Mutations & (Re)locations: Work by Robin Meyer” from March 12 to April 1, 2013. The opening reception is March 13 from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. The public is also invited to an artist talk on March 27 at noon in the gallery.
Meyer’s paintings, drawings and multimedia work deal explicitly with environmental relationships. Through nontraditional landscapes, Meyer tells a story of potential and existing disasters and relates them to our own power and fragility. Meyer imbues her work with tension by using visual metaphors found in fallen and twisted limbs, and juxtapositions of nature with the man-made. By exploiting sites ripe for interpretation, her images blend natural and unnatural spaces to demonstrate the struggles of mankind.
