John Frost (Nashville) creates an environment filled with boxes, house-like structures, winding wooden pathways, and oversized “canvases” made of shower curtains stretched on raw wood frames. A large umbrella of lumber and stretched shower curtains shelters hidden sculptural works. Frost states, “My focus lies in how we visually perceive and physically experience domestic objects and the spaces they occupy. These objects that are taken for granted are pared down to their essence, so that the accessories of their context do not distract from their primal functions.”

installation view of LivefeedIn “Livefeed” artist Jeff Shore (Houston) and composer Jon Fisher (Austin) present a sculptural video installation that focuses on what Shore calls “the dialogue between motion, light and sound.” Each sculpture in the exhibition is composed of a miniature diorama or scene that video cameras are activated to “fly through” to produce real-time video clips. These are projected on monitors next to each piece and on a large wall in a coordinated sequence that creates a narrative complete with soundtrack. “Everything is choreographed and the parts serve the overall design: a large multimedia composition which unfolds over the course of time.”

In association with the exhibition, the artists will each give presentations about their work. Shore and Fisher will present their work at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, and Frost will speak at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30. Both talks will take place in room 148 in the Fine Arts Building adjacent to The Gallery. An opening reception will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, with a gallery talk beginning at 6:30 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
