Herndon Gallery to host SOURCE exhibition

Beginning June 1

Antioch College will present SOURCE with artists Basia Irland, Dornith Doherty, Amber Ginsburg, and Joe Madrigal from June 1 through August 17 in Herndon Gallery, South Hall. Gallery hours are 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

An opening reception is from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 1 in the gallery. The closing reception, featuring an artist talk with Amber Ginsburg and Joe Madrigal, is from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, August 17, 2012.

SOURCE presents the work of four artists whose work is intimately involved with “the seed”, and includes the goal of environmental restoration, preservation of endangered genetic material, and uncovering histories. They work in a range of mediums, from photographs made with X-Ray cameras in seed banks across the world, to carving of ice books that use seeds as “text”, to an imaginative repurposing of World War I ceramic test bomb dummies into seed shakers. The work is poetic, performative, and profound.

The exhibition has been curated by Dennie Eagleson ‘71, creative director of the Herndon Gallery, and Sara Black, professor of visual arts at Antioch College.
