UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Sept. 26, 2011--Trever Nicholas will exhibit his installation "Polymorphic Membranes" in Gallery 101 in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Oct. 5-28.
Nicholas, a resident of St. Paul, has exhibited his sculptural work and installations in Hungary, New York City, and numerous locations in the Twin Cities. He has received several grants from The Jerome Foundation and was Artist in Residence at both Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minn., and Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minn.
"The geometry of milk bubbles and the presence of large fluffy cumulus clouds lay the groundwork for the construction of Polymorphic Membranes," says Nicholas. "I am a cross disciplinary visual artist who is interested in perceived experience as interpreted through our senses."
"I create objects of wonder by accentuating commonplace objects, memories, and situations," Nicholas added. "I am interested in elements of science, aspects of desire, and our body's physical relationship to objects, architecture, and the surrounding environment."
An exhibition reception will be held concurrently with the opening of the 20th Annual Outdoor Art Installations on the UW-River Falls campus. Nicholas will be showing a PowerPoint presentation of his current and past installations and exhibitions at the reception set for Oct. 5 from 3:30-5:30 p.m., in Gallery 101.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.; and Sunday from 2-4 p.m. For more information, contact the Art Department at 715-425-3266.
