APPLETON, WIS. — Boston sculptor Julie Levesque opens the latest exhibition at Lawrence University’s Wriston Art Center galleries with her sculptural installation “Sift.” The exhibition runs through April 26.
Levesque will deliver the exhibition’s opening lecture Friday, March 13 at 6 p.m. A reception with Levesque follows the address, which is free and open to the public.
Working almost exclusively in white, Levesque focuses on motion and the fluid transformation of energy into inanimate objects. She describes “Sift” as “a time piece representing the physical embodiment of eternity and futility.” The installation features a woman crawling around a curricular track, leaving her mark behind her and weighed down by the movement and debris she picks up. It will be shown in the Kohler Gallery.
Jean Roberts Guequierre, a Milwaukee-based painter, presents “Carnival, Lent and Other Subjects” in the Hoffmaster Gallery. Her often humorous, small-scale oil paintings of Northern Renaissance-style figures explore such moral issues as temperance, prudence, faith, fortitude and justice. Guequierre will deliver an artist lecture on Friday, April 3.
The Leech Gallery will feature “Messages in Metal,” a selection of coins from Lawrence’s own Ottilia Buerger Collection of Ancient and Byzantine Coins. The exhibition was organized and researched by sophomore Frederick Breslow, senior Elizabeth Marshall, sophomore Margaret Pieper and Carol Lawton, professor of art history and Ottilia Buerger Professor of Classical Studies.
Wriston Art Center hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday from noon – 4 p.m. The gallery is closed Mondays. For more information, call 920-832-6621 or visit http://www.lawrence.edu/news/wriston/.
