The Kent State University School of Art’s Downtown Gallery presents: Local Terrain

Featuring the work of:
Adair Taylor, Annie Stimson, April Bachtel, April Bleakney, Carey McDougall, Drew Smith, Elaine Hullihen, Emma Pavlik, Gianna Commito, Liz Maugans, Maren Derbogen, Maria lafelice, Mark Schatz, Roni Callahan and Stephanie Brewer.

The exhibition, Local Terrain, focuses on using the art of mapping to specifically depict the North East Ohioregion. There are 15 participating artists and each of them has a unique connection to the area. I have selected work from a variety of mediums for the exhibition, including photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, video and mixed media. I have asked that the artists explore the diversity in mapping: appropriation, charting, documentation, representation, memory/nostalgia, identity, and journey/travel. I am interested in each artist using strategies in mapping to illustrate a system of diagrammed information and examiningvarious conventions of our connection and understanding of ‘place’.
