Upon entering the Corner Gallery, students will step into the brightly lit room where every wall is covered in framed pieces, sculptures are hanging from the ceilings, and creations are set up in the middle of the room on the wood floor. This display is all part of the “Weird Science” collaborated collection created by Justin Gibbens and Renee Adams.
The gallery is complimented by Renee Adams’ touches of flora and fauna inspired artwork that originated from her small town past. All of her sculptures are delicately created with mixed-media and small-scale egg tempera paintings.
Adams is an active contributor to her region’s art world, taking the title of a founding member of PUNCH gallery, an artist-run space dedicated to Seattle artists in the downtown area.
The other artist featured is Justin Gibbens, who credits his inspiration to all the time he spent watching David Attenborough documentaries, taking trips to natural history museums and his serious interest in all things that scamper and poke about in the undergrowth, slither in the thickets, soar through the ether and swim in the infinite abyss of our planet’s aquatic environments.
The gallery will be displayed from Tuesday, Nov. 15 to Friday, Feb. 3 in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery. The gallery hours are 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Fridays.
