Art Exhibition titled "Past Tense"

Noon - 7 pm

Ralph Arnold Gallery

Past Tense is an exhibition of artworks that directly relate to moments in art history. The artists in Past Tense show that art history is not simply a linear chronicle of historical events, but is a source of information to be manipulated and re-contextualized. Works ranging from painting and photography to installation and fiber art contend with the traditions of art history in thoughtful and unexpected ways. Curated by Betsy Odom.
