Steeped in academia: Considering Barrick Museum’s ‘Panorama’

October 29th, 2014

Academia is both a boon and bane to artists’ careers.

  • The art component of Life Is Beautiful hit visitors with a multi-sensory wallop, the kind of one-two audio/visual punch taking over the streets outside.

  • It’s another big loss for an arts scene already without CAC exhibits and preparing for Trifecta’s end.

  • “Freefall” is a vertical move from Tillinghast’s courtyard water installation (a 30-by-60-foot reservoir) last year at the Odyssey,

  • A whimsical wall by locals Sush Machida and Tim Bavington and more.

  • "Art doesn’t choose anybody. It’s for everybody."

  • The surface of the works pulses, recedes, domes and dips depending on the light, perspective and attention of the viewer.

  • "I saw these common threads -- biography, place, memory..."

  • Here, the women are on an adventure of another kind, regardless of the bleak and sudden surroundings.

  • SolSis Gallery and Anthony Ortega’s EQLD Creations Art Studio have moved into the creative hub on Industrial Road.

  • The commonality between them extends beyond the East-meets-West art elements and into the powerful messaging within the work.

  • The six sculptures on exhibit flip from playful to poignant so subtly, it’s difficult to find the exact moment when the heart thumps.
