Carbondale Arts presents an evening with the artists of “Bauhaus Seen” on Tuesday evening, July 2, from 6:00-7:30pm. “Bauhaus Seen” is currently on view at the R2 Gallery inside The Launchpad and celebrates 100 years of the art movement and features Bauhaus-inspired furniture makers from across the country curated by Brad Reed Nelson as well as Bauhaus-influenced painters Richard Carter and Dave Durrance.
This evening’s talk, led by Reed Nelson, Durrance, and Carter, will explore the keen intersection of influence, attribution and originality through the eyes and minds of these artists as well as the other ten furniture makers from across the US. The influence of the Bauhaus movement can be felt throughout modern life. The artists presented here acknowledge that influence though their individual interpretations of that moment in time.
The connection between the cultural climate of the Bauhaus era and that of today remains uncanny. Exhibitions like “Bauhaus Seen” and the others in the Roaring Fork area commemorating the Bauhaus connection this summer will showcase this uniquely American modernist history and show how vastly important education in art, design and culture continues to be.
We hope you’ll join us for this artist talk Tuesday evening, July 2, and enjoy these artworks in “Bauhaus Seen” before the exhibition ends on Friday, July 5. Refreshments provided.
“Bauhaus Seen” is generously supported by Susan Beckerman, Bunny and Charles Burson, Isa Catto Shaw, Larry Cohen, Sara Ransford, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, Jonathan Singer, and Ruth and John Ward.
