Tonight in The Project Space: Opening Reception for ART 329’s Material Study, Surface

November 12, 2015  by: Natalie Fleming


Please join us tonight in The Project Space from 5-7PM for the opening reception of ART 329’s Material Study, Surface.  

The sculptural work was created by students Jessica Baker, Ashwini Karve, Robert Wysocki, Elisa Cremean with Professor Reinhard Reitzenstein.

Plaster soaked fabric draped over top a suspended steel structure alters the spatial experience of the viewer. The idea for the piece began as a relief project and later transformed into a material study focused around plaster. The pre-existing surfaces and the surfaces generated through the use of plaster creates a piece that not only has a sense of cohesiveness and belonging within the space, but also brings in new organic textures.
