Terhune Gallery’s latest exhibition is ‘A Family Affair’Written by John Dorsey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Walter E. Terhune Gallery’s latest exhibition is keeping things in the family. The aptly titled “A Family Affair” features digital prints, fibers, photography, paintings,
drawings and sculptures by Matthew, Susan, and Lou Krueger. There will be an opening reception on February 26, from 6-8pm.
In conjunction with the exhibit, there will also be a free lecture by the artists on Thursday, March 18, at 7pm. This event is being hosted by Owens’ Center for Fine and Performing Arts, and will be held in Studio Theatre Room 111.
“Owens Community College is honored to welcome Matthew, Susan and Lou Krueger and their amazing artistic talents to the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery,” said Wynn Perry, Owens Part-Time Coordinator of the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery.
The Krueger’s bring with them a wide variety of artistic experience. Lou, who currently serves on the faculty of BGSU, received a BFA in Metals and MFA in Photography from Northern Illinois University. He was one of the Co-Founders of the Syracuse University art photography program. Lou has shown his photographs, drawings, and paintings, locally, regionally and nationally, in exhibitions, both juried and by invitation. Susan, who works in fiber collage, has taught at Syracuse University and Bowling Green State University, and has received several awards including Emerging Artist honors at Quilt National. Her work has addressed issues such as the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina. Matthew, who is the son of Lou and Susan, currently resides in Cleveland. He has an MFA in Printmaking from Ohio University. His work has appeared in exhibits throughout Midwest, including The Toledo Museum of Art.
“Matthew, Susan and Lou find that the use of mixed media and narrative acts as a common thread in the fabric of their artwork. Individually or in collaboration, their imagery embraces an eclectic mix of processes and technologies that examine the spaces
between truth and illusion. Taking the final form of digital print, fibers, photography, painting, drawing or sculpture, their work will encourage exhibit attendees’ imagination to soar.”
“A Family Affair” includes the Krueger’s interactive “Step Right Up” work, which invites attendees to enter, pose and be photographed. The exhibit is free and open to the public, and will remain on display through March 27. The Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery is located in Owens’ Center for Fine and Performing Arts.
