The Montminy Gallery is proud to announce, The Residents: Access Arts. The show will be on display from August 3 – Sept 1, 2019 and highlight the work by Access Arts Artists in Residence, Marisa Collado and Patrick Owen. The show will focus on the experience of how dedicated creative time during their residency has allowed them to push the boundaries of what they thought was creatively possible.
Potter, Marisa Collado, explores the use of texture and color and how the two interact with each other to create work with the idea of “home” in mind. Patrick Owen’s paintings respond to our current cultural landscape of sedentary lifestyles through sports imagery and physical activity. His work also explores the idea that to participate, is to perform; and for every performer there is a process; a journey to undertake.
Based on The Artist in Residence program at Access Arts mission, to assist professional artists with their personal artistic goals while simultaneously providing them with experience teaching a diverse population of students - professional artists, throughout the country, are chosen to participate in the residency program for three months to one year. While in residence, these artists develop their own artwork and serve the community by teaching classes and workshops in their field of expertise.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, August 17 from 3 – 5 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The Gallery is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Sunday 12 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Montminy Gallery is located inside the Boone County History & Culture Center, owned and operated by the Boone County Historical Society.
