Carbondale Arts will host an art talk with artists Lara Whitley and Lindsay Jones of CA’s current R2 Gallery exhibitions “Homecoming: A site-specific installation” and “Pattern Recognition: Observations and Explorations.”
Learn about more about Whitley’s process of building “Homecoming” using glass she foraged from abandoned town dumps in the Valley to resurrected a miner’s shack. Lara notes, “‘Homecoming’ digs into both the history of our community and the zeitgeist of our time: throwaway culture. These bits of glass were the plastic of their day.”
Jones will discuss her process of abstracting architecture and landscapes into her vibrant, textured, and punctuated collection of works titled “Pattern Recognition.” Many of the places that have inspired Jones’ art are the precious area currently under threat of losing protection due to drilling and resource extraction.
