American Artifacts

Multimedia 

Laura and Paul Mesaros Gallery

September 2-30, 2021

Lecture & Performance Reception: Thursday, September 30 at 5 p.m. in Bloch Hall


"American Artifacts" is centered around the desire to investigate our nation’s history and interrogate our present using craft, material, and performance as a lens for both maker and audience. Tradition engages our personal and historical lineages, catalyzing a discourse with the contemporary and speculative. The artists in this exhibition engender a dynamic inquisition of what a changing face of American identity means for the hegemonies of the past. It is our hope that the works in this exhibition tell a story of America’s now, forever, and never again.


Hannah Freeman, "Harmonize"

Painting

Laura Mesaros Gallery

Lecture and Reception: Thursday, October 21 at 5 p.m. in Bloch Hall


Hannah K. Freeman graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2013 Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and a minor in 2D Studio Art. She earned her MFA from the University of Notre Dame in May of 2019 and has exhibited her paintings across the country, from California to New York. Hannah is currently a Teaching Assistant Professor of Art at West Virginia University.


Lichens, fungi, and mosses help ensure and maintain life on earth. These sublime organisms serve as a starting point for Hannah’s paintings. She draws upon the history of landscape painting and abstraction, together with ecotheology, to communicate spiritual ideas in relation to creation. Using the finite to think about the infinite, the paintings evoke the mysterious, wondrous, interconnected process of existence.
