“Body Mapping,” an exhibition of paintings and drawings that explore the human body from each artist’s individual standpoint, will be on display in the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery. The exhibition will open on Friday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. and will run through Sunday, Oct. 4.
The collection features enigmatic painted, oil-glazed wood panels by Eileen Senner displaying glowing, fragmented torsos set in dark expanses of undefined space; hand-painted photographs by Kaethe Kauffman that probe the body’s dynamics that bring muscular substructures to light; watercolors by Tina Blondell that appropriate poses and symbols inspired by Biblical and mythic heroines; and pencil drawings by Giedra Montvila, who draws on her own experience as a runway fashion model to take issue with the barrage of media-generated glamour propaganda. Each artist’s focus differs, covering metaphysical issues, bodily mechanisms, personal growth patterns and society’s obsession with superficial appearances.
The Roper Gallery is open Sunday through Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Dustin Davis at email@example.com or call the Department of Visual Arts at 301-687- 4797.
