Summer Exhibitions Closing Reception

Presented by Buckham Gallery at Buckham Gallery

Buckham Gallery will be hosting a closing reception for the Summer Exhibitions, August 28 from 4-6 PM.

Join Bill Davis, Devan Horton and Buckham Gallery to experience these three wonderful exhibitions one more time as we say goodbye to Beastly Luster, No Dark In Sight and Penchant.

Refreshments will be provided. Free admission.

Kelly Boehmer approaches her soft sculptures with a tragic sense of humor. Beastly Luster explores the absurd beauty in anxiety. Using the teeth from upcycled taxidermy and gory visceral imagery, Boehmer symbolizes emotional vulnerability. Glittery sheer fabrics and saturated faux fur “soften the blow,” making those anxieties easier to confront.

Bill Davis’ photography reflects humanity’s vision for itself. No Dark in Sight conveys how artificial light occupies the night. This exhibit demonstrates the artifice of light pollution, why and how that matters by inviting populations to adopt foresight intelligence, employ reason, and manage their communities in less artificial ways. When night looks like night, we can embrace its lifeforce.

Devan Horton explores our culture’s obsession with consumption and waste by analyzing our relationship with garbage. Penchant brings to light our relationship with waste in hopes of convincing others that even through the endless social and economic issues compounding around us, our planet is always of the utmost importance, and we as a species must work together to preserve its beauty for generations to come.

Buckham Fine Arts Project is supported in part by an award from the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS and the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the Greater Flint Arts Council Share Art Genesee Grant Program made possible by the Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment Millage funds.
