Art History Kicks off 2011-12 Exhibition Season With 'The Horizon Line: Continuity and Change'

The St. Thomas Department of Art History will open the exhibition “The Horizon Line: Continuity and Change” today, Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the O’Shaughnessy Educational Center lobby gallery. An artist reception will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8.

The artists in this exhibition use lines, the most basic of the design elements, to interpret transition and change. An example of ever-changing lines can be found by gazing at the horizon – it appears the line is straight but it is easily altered. The artists are striving towards their own "horizon line,” the ever-changing expression of the most basic of all ideas.

The exhibit will feature the work of Megan Huskey, Gretachew Irko, Eric Johnson, Eric Menzhuber, Sheila Moar and Jodi Reeb-Myers.

“The Horizon Line: Continuity and Change” is offered in conjunction with the College Art Gallery Collaboration Fall Art Tour and Twin Cities Fine Arts Organization’s Art on the Town.

The exhibition is free, open to the public and handicap accessible. For more information, call Sue Focke, (651) 962-5560, or visit the Department of Art History.
