Work of two artists on display in 'Betwixt'
at Flanagan Campus Art Gallery
Nov. 13, 2012
A special closing reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, at the gallery, in Room 2420 on the first floor of the campus, located at 1762 Louisquisset Pike in Lincoln. The Community College of Rhode Island Flanagan Campus Art Gallery is featuring “Betwixt,” recent work in mixed media installation by Bruce Alan Kaplan and Heidi Kathleen Born, through Nov. 20.
The artists said the show is about surfing the continuum between opposite states. Installation, photography, painting and ceramics reveal the interstitial spaces between life, death and rebirth; between color and monochrome; between the serious and the silly; and so much more. The materials and experiences for the show occur on a tour between moving from one coast to the other and back again, amassing memories and shifting perceptions along the way. Beyond that, the show is about what happens between to artists who share the voyage, about their conjunctions and disjunctions and everything betwixt.
Kaplan says he is a self-taught abuser of digital photography and digital cameras alike, having killed the latter in the pristine desert of California and the post-industrial waters of Rhode Island.
Born graduated from Rhode Island School of Design after studying illustration and ceramics and has spent the past few years painting murals and children's faces on both coasts when not immersing herself in her Providence ceramics studio.
Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays. Admission to the reception and exhibition are free, and the gallery is handicapped accessible.
