Some recent exhibitions: Amanda and Elliott Lunson

Appareality presented the installation of two Midland artists, Amanda and Elliott Lunson. Given free reign of the Special Projects Gallery, the Lunsons began with a vivid idea grounded in reality, then let go of conscious thinking allowing intuition to take control. Works included in this exhibition, as well as most work produced by the Lunsons are conceived in this fashion. Letting go of the original idea throughout the art making process allows each piece to take on a life of its own. The artwork then presents itself, an apparition if you will, an unexpected vision, the way it is meant to be.

Some recent exhibitions: Robert Fathauer

Math, Nature and Form presented the two and three dimensional work of Robert Fathauer. He was trained as a research scientist, having earned a Ph.D. from Cornell University and worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The artist is fascinated by beautiful and complex forms both in mathematics and in the natural world. He is particularly intrigued by intricate structures that exhibit symmetrical and regular underlying order. With this exhibition, a ‘pedestal forest’ of ceramics was creating, with works on paper on the gallery walls. This exhibition was the final of four parts of the 2017 Contemporary Artist Series: Science in the Southwest.
