Opening Reception for Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature

Thursday, May 21, 2015
Halsey Institute Galleries

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents the exhibition Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature. The exhibition will be on view at the Halsey Institute May 22 – July 11, 2015. Admission to the galleries is free. The opening reception on Thursday, May 21, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm will be open to the public and include complimentary refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres, provided by Whole Foods and Icebox.

Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than fifty works in various mediums will be on view throughout the Halsey Institute, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output. The exhibition includes a monumental sculptural installation;  a site-specific, volumetric wall drawing; and a collaborative animation, as well as digital and traditional prints, photographs, and ceramics.

Shotz’s practice examines the properties and interactions of light, gravity, mass, and space. She bridges disciplines in her work, drawing on scientific methods, mathematical principles, and literature, among other diverse fields. Often employing nontraditional materials such as glass beads, linen thread, stainless-steel filaments, and welded aluminum to create large-scale abstract sculptures, Shotz expands upon conventional notions of sculptural space and form.
