Herndon hosts Closing Reception of SOURCE

Herndon hosts Closing Reception for SOURCE exhibition
Friday, August 17, 2012
Time: 6-9 p.m.
Where: Antioch College, Herndon Gallery

Antioch College will present the SOURCE Closing Reception with artists Amber Ginsburg and Joe Madrigal on August 17 in Herndon Gallery in South Hall on the Antioch College campus. The closing reception, featuring an artist talk with Amber Ginsburg and Joe Madrigal, is from 6-9 p.m., Friday, August 17, 2012.

SOURCE presents the work of four artists whose work is intimately involved with “the seed” and includes the goal of environmental restoration, preservation of endangered genetic material, and uncovering histories. They work in a range of mediums, from photographs made with X-ray cameras in seed banks across the world, to carving of ice books that use seeds as “text,” to an imaginative repurposing of World War I ceramic test bomb dummies into seed shakers. The work is poetic, performative, and profound.

The exhibition has been curated by Dennie Eagleson ’71, creative director of the Herndon Gallery, and Sara Black, professor of visual arts at Antioch College.
