The UNO-St. Claude Gallery is excited to announce the opening of the first MFA thesis show of the season: Pictured Things with works by Matthew John Bivalacqua
The show will run from Friday Feb 8th through Mar 2nd, 2019.
An opening reception for this exhibit will be held on Friday, February 8th, from 6PM – 9PM.
Regarding his his work, Bivalacqua states:
“I am attracted to subject matter based on formal, historical, and sentimental references. Altering an image and then rendering it in pastel or paint, affords me a way to emphasize and express the aspects of the subjects that I find engaging. I combine projections and/or digital photographs, using traditional painting or drawing mediums to acquire varied, tactile surfaces that visually reference subjective, emotional responses to the selected subject matter. These objects and their environments are manipulations, initially chosen for their visual or symbolic relationship to events in my personal experience.”
There will be an opening reception at the gallery on February 8th from 6-9 p.m. Regular gallery hours are 12-5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays, through the run of the exhibition. Please contact Tony Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, or call the gallery at 504.948.6939 during open hours.
