The exhibition, based around the idea of storytelling, will open at noon Oct. 7 in the KOA Speer Electronics lobby in Blaisdell Hall. Weed will give a brief talk at noon, followed by a light lunch. The exhibition, talk and lunch are free and open to the public.
The exhibition will be on display in the KOA Art Gallery in Pitt-Bradford’s Blaisdell Hall through Nov. 4. The gallery will be open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
“[Weed] really brings that classical element [of art] into the more illustrative sense,” said Anna Lemnitzer, director of the art program at Pitt-Bradford.
Weed’s artwork has a major storytelling component, which Lemnitzer said ties in well with the interdisciplinary arts program at Pitt-Bradford. Lemnitzer said that this exhibit will focus mostly on telling stories that celebrate the passage and constructs of time in the American West.
Weed and Lemnitzer have worked together in the past. They attended the same Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Montana and were both featured in the National Wet Paint MFA Biennial art show in Chicago.
