UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY FEATURING TWO ARTISTS


Mexico State University Art Gallery will show an exhibit featuring two artists through Oct. 9.

The works are "The Churches of New Mexico" and "The Flowers in the Window," monoprints by H. Joe Waldrum, and "Emergence," an installation by Matthew Sommerville.

In the 1970s, Waldrum began taking Polaroid SX-70 monoprints of New Mexico's churches to use as studies for future paintings. The monoprints of flowers were produced after Waldrum experimented with studies of flowers and color in his New York studio.

Sommerville's video and sound installation attempts to address the process of coming to consciousness in both its literal and metaphorical forms -- light -- by exploring a possible state of existence before language and thought.
