The opening reception will take place at Wade Wilson Art, 217 West Water Street in Santa Fe.
“Stubborn Matter” uses the lens of weight and density as they relate to matter to consider work from the artists across and within educational and community contexts. All of these artists bend their visual vocabularies to promote and indulge their unique investigations of personal history. The results not only challenge traditional artistic approaches—painting, drawing, sculpture—but also create a distinct, almost performative role for the viewer as they attempt to read those histories. “Stubborn Matter” highlights work by SFUAD students, alumni, faculty, and guest artists, including Ligia Bouton, Karl Hofmann, Tom Joyce, Phat Le, Joanne Lefrak, Donna Ruff, Kevin Scott-Bouton, Brad Wolfley, and Susan York.
The exhibition will run through May 15, 2015 at Wade Wilson Art.
