Closing reception Friday Aug 28, 7-9pm.
New works by Don Robson and Robert Sherer.
Memory, storytelling, symbols and metaphor weave through the works of these two established artists. Appropriation of imagery is an important aspect for both artists. Robson and Sherer went to Graduate school together at Edinboro University and now both teach art at Kennesaw State University.
Don Robson's work mixes imagery from past and present to rewrite familiar narratives. His work mirrors his fascination with interconnectedness. The symbolic baggage of images re-combine to re-present recognized stories.
Robert Sherer's wood-burnings are mostly autobiographical, but a few are pure fantasy. Memories of his outdoorsy rural upbringing closely resemble classic 1960’s illustrations. The result is a mixture of appropriation, mimicry, parody, and nostalgia. The intent of the series is not simply kitsch nostalgia but rather an attempt to unearth from memory those pivotal moments when the natural love between males challenges and disrupts the social schema of male competition.
