Lanny DeVuono, solo exhibition

Opening reception Thursday September 17, 2013, 6-9 p.m. Curated by Cortney Stell
Gallery Hours: 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday
The Exhibition: dirt contains a single, large-scale piece. The work’s size and the low height at which it is hung, create an experience that lingers between an immersive environment and the orthodox viewing of an image hung on a wall. The installation is a synthesis of object and image, and presents an engagement that reflects on the humanistic relation to the landscape and environment. In this exhibition, artist Lanny DeVuono demonstrates her complex understanding of our sense of space in relation to two-dimensional surfaces and puts to use many modes of communication, including cartography, traditional representation of landscape horizons and both historical and current imagery.
The Artist: Lanny DeVuono is alum of the RedLine Resource Artist program. She has received numerous awards and grants and taught as a Fulbright Scholar in Kerala, India, and as a visiting lecturer in Bangkok, Thailand.
