New Sculpture Exhibit at UNC Asheville by Katie Johnson
Mon, 10/15/2012 - 4:11pm
"Fragmentation and Redemption," an exhibit of sculptures by UNC Asheville senior Katie Johnson, will open with a reception at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, in Highsmith University Union Gallery on campus.
Johnson says the works in the exhibition show her "transition from a place of grieving and loss to a place of restoration, healing and progression." The sculptures reflect her feeling of connection between spirituality and art, and use imagery and icons related to the Roman Catholic Church, "relating them to the spirituality of the body and its creation," according to Johnson.
"Fragmentation and Redemption" is the culminating exhibition of Johnson's work toward her BFA. The exhibit will be on view from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 12-6 p.m. Sundays, through November 6. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
