A new student art exhibit from Kyle Matulevich will open on Oct. 21 in the Brindle Gallery.
Matulevich is a junior art major, and the title of his exhibit is “Yeah Right, Reincarnation.” He used encaustic paint and other mixed media including wood, spray paint, newspaper, climbing rope and found objects.
Matulevich’s idea for this exhibit was a commentary on American culture. In this artistic effort he has focused on questioning a concept that seems to permeate our Western culture that you only live once.
He was influenced greatly by Taoism and believes there is a necessary balance between light and dark/push and pull.
He is trying to create visual conversation not a criticism. Matulevich also related his artwork in the exhibit to music, which he also believes is an influence on culture, by having the art formatted as if it was a seven-track record.
The exhibit opened on Oct. 21 and will run until Oct. 31 in Room 213 of the Huber Art Center with the hours of 9 a.m. — 3 p.m.
The faculty exhibit that opened on Oct. 9 will continue to be displayed until Oct. 24 in the Kauffman Gallery.
The exhibit includes artwork from full-time and adjunct faculty and includes sculpture, painting and mixed media work. The hours are Monday — Thursday from 9 a.m. — 3 p.m. and Wednesday from 6:30 — 8:30 p.m.
There will be a new exhibit displayed in the Kauffman Gallery on Oct. 30. This will feature the work of the Penn State Master of Fine Arts graduate students.
This work will include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional work. The opening will be at 6:30 p.m. and there will be a presentation at 7 p.m. in the gallery. The exhibit will continue until Nov. 15.
