BEASTS, TROLLS, AND THE MAGICAL BODY- Art by Megan Bogonovich, Mark McCoin, Nicole Hongchang, Kate Fox - Reception, Thursday, March 14th, 5-7pm. All are welcome! Free refreshments.
The CSU-Pueblo Art Gallery is proud to announce an exhibition highlighting 4 extraordinary artists under the theme “humanized fairy tale and magical human body.” The exhibition includes video work of University of Colorado faculty member Mark McCoin, a digital and performance artist whose piece is influenced by Japanese Butoh dance. A still from his video "Vox Organa" appears below. Also on display, multi-media art by University of Colorado MFA and CSU-Pueblo alumni Nicole Hongchang. Nicole's improvisations on the human form evoke a supernatural human body, simultaneously transformed and possessed by emotional extremes. Pueblo ceramic artist Kate Fox conjures an alternate reality inhabited with semi-human creatures that both threaten and delight. Kate, also a CSU-Pueblo alum, is currently working on her MFA from Fort Hays State while holding the position of educator and artist-in-residence at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. Finally, ceramic artist Megan Bogonovich's figurines resemble familiar fairy characters - if those characters were exposed to a mysterious radioactive substance. Megan, a member of the Fine Art Department at Saint Anselm College, also has her own business making inter-species wedding cake toppers.
