Jim Jipson
“My Endless Quest for the Chthonic”

Exhibition | Jan. 28 – Feb. 13
Reception | Jan. 28 from 5-7pm
Artist Talk | Feb. 5 at 2pm

The Art Gallery at the University of West Florida, presents “My Endless Quest for the Chthonic,” an exhibition by artist Jim Jipson. Working in both two and three dimensions, Jipson creates photographs and sculptures that poetically reinterpret natural forms into mysterious abstractions. In addition to the photographs on display, Jipson has invented a projector that projects images of objects that move in both a repetitive and non-repetitive way. The works exhibited involve chance, the interrelationship between all things, and space and time.

AFE_postcard

The Art Gallery at the University of West Florida is pleased to present COMPLeMENT, the 2015 UWF Art Faculty Exhibition. For this bi-annual show, instructors in the Department of Art utilize the gallery as a pedagogical platform to exhibit research and artwork from various, diverse practices. These practices include painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, digital art, video and sound installation.

As an adjective, the word complement means “combining in such a way as to enhance or emphasize the qualities of each other or another.” This exhibition illustrates that the whole is more than the sum of it’s parts and that individual, creative pursuits excel when in supportive harmony with others.

The UWF Art Faculty Exhibition plays a crucial role in the cultural experience of students, staff, faculty, and the greater community of northwest Florida.  It accomplishes this goal by showcasing innovative artists who challenge, stimulate, and engage. The Art Gallery is located across from the Main Stage Theatre in the Center of Fine and Performing Arts, building 82 on the UWF campus. Free food and beverages will be provided during the opening reception on Thursday September 17 from 5-8pm.
