Multimedia sculpture exhibition features lush fabrics, steel rods

A multimedia sculpture that is part of an art exhibition in Rice Gallery by Stewart Watson.
January 29, 2013

Stewart Watson, founder and currently exhibitions director at Area 405 in Baltimore, displays multimedia sculptures in “possessions” Jan. 29-Feb. 22 in Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall, at McDaniel College. The opening reception is 7-9 p.m. Jan. 29, with an artist talk at 7:30 p.m.

Watson’s mixed media installations made from lush fabrics and sprung steel rods disassemble and reframe interactions. Moments of tension, nostalgia and interdependence are revealed as she reinterprets each element in a relationship. Her arrangements disarm the viewer with a tangible experience of vulnerability, dependence and anticipation.

In addition to working as a visual artist, Stewart Watson is a curator, exhibition designer, community artist, volunteer, teacher and parent. Her work has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, as well as more than 60 juried and group shows. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pennsylvania State University and Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland.

The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are noon-4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, noon-8 p.m. Thursday, and noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Call 410-857-2595 for more information.
