Aglow: Aurora Robson Exhibition Opening

June 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

This new exhibition presents the suspended and illuminated plastic works of renowned environmental artist Aurora Robson. A multimedia artist known primarily for her work intercepting the waste stream, Robson transforms plastic debris into mesmerizing, bold sculptures that disguise and transcend their material. While drawing attention to the global challenge of single-use waste, Robson values plastic as an art material for its durability and pliability. Robson seeks to imbue these often overlooked materials with care and intention, encouraging a viewer to consider their own relationship with waste and the waterways where it so often is discarded. Viewers will be able to wander through gallery and continue outside, where Robson’s illuminated sculptures have been installed along the trails. The opening reception will include a guided walk at dusk and remarks by the artist and curator.

More information about the exhibit can be found here.

This exhibition is supported by the Joseph Robert Foundation.
