NEW EXHIBIT OPENS AT THE APEX GALLERY ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19
Jane Catlin: The Sarin Series opens at the Apex Gallery on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) on Friday, November 19, 1999. In the exhibition artist Jane Catlin explores the effects of chemical incineration in her home state of Utah. Using images of the internal structures of the human body Catlin’s paintings and mixed media drawings voice her concern over the toxic substances released at the Tooele chemical weapons incinerator. The images are both disturbing and richly textured, instructional and expressive.
Professor Catlin has an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and teaches Art Education at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. She will present a public lecture entitled Mud Cloth: A Living Art Form in Mali Africa based upon a recent faculty research grant to Mali. The lecture will take place on Friday, November 19, at noon in the Room 204 East, in the Class Room Building at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
An opening reception for the exhibition will be held the evening of the 19th from 5: 00 – 7: 00 pm in the Apex Gallery. For more information about the reception or exhibition, call the Apex Gallery at ( 605) 394- 1254.
