ARTalk: “Pressure Printing Using Hand Cut Stencils” with Monika Meler March 12, 2019 / 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Flight Pattern juxtaposes the work of two contemporary artists, sculptor Nathaniel Foley (Findlay, OH) and printmaker Monika Meler (Stockton, CA), who emphasize fragility as it relates to aviation and memory.

Monika Meler’s journey as a Polish immigrant to America underscores the visual patterns she creates. As time passes, memories change, distort and blur together. Her layered prints repeat and change direction on top of each other, mimicking the process of remembering.

Nathaniel Foley was immersed in the field of aviation at an early age, instilling an inclination to defy limitations. Foley’s delicate sculptural forms, made of various cones, are held together by tension lines. For Foley, aviation dances the line between grace and imminent danger.

After Nature identifies the natural world and human experience as dependent entities woven together. Alice Ballard (Greenville, SC), Katy Bergman Cassell (Greenville, SC) and Shelley Caldwell (Delavan, MN) engage with the natural world through different mediums including jewelry, clay, and drawing.  The artists exhibiting in After Nature share an interest in the relationship humans play within the natural world and explore how that relationship is influenced by cultural and personal mythos.
