STAC’s Azarian McCullough Art Gallery New Group Exhibition – Anomaly
St. Thomas Aquinas College announces its next exhibit, “Anomaly” a group exhibit featuring new sculptures on campus in the Azarian McCullough Art Gallery. Please join us for a reception on Wednesday, November 16th, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. The show runs until December 18th, 2022.
A typical definition of an anomaly reads: “Something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected.” In the visual arts, anomalies that often come to mind were those created by the Surrealists. The people or objects depicted in their works are, mostly, recognizable to us, so why do they seem so strange? Is it because they deny our expectations and appear odd, or because they appear misplaced in their surroundings, or perhaps both? The bigger question, however, is “why”? How does one explain their presence? Are they there to shock or otherwise heighten our sensibilities, or do they convey some message of importance?
This exhibit was conceived by members of 14 Sculptor Inc., and features the work of Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Esther A. Grillo, Mary Rieser Heintjes, Bernice Sokol Kramer, Niki Ketchman, Siena Gillann Porta, Carl Rattner, and Herb Rosenberg.
