“I like nature but not its substitutes.”
- Hans Arp
Colorful works by Allie Rex, Mary Anne
Arntzen and Nathan Green playfully question form and meaning through abstraction. These exuberant paintings and installations revel in issues of visual perception creating a game of forms that is as fun to traverse as it must have been to make. Rex, Arntzen and Green are
emerging artists working in related ways yet in diverse places, namely New York,
Baltimore and Dallas/Fort Worth. The similarities in their artwork suggest that
there is a language of contemporary abstraction that extends beyond specific
locales.

Korean-American artist Eun Kyung Suh explores the diasporic experiences of Korean adoptees and immigrants. Feelings of alienation within an adoptive society are addressed in Suh’s artwork, where textile sculptures and installations encapsulate these topics of culture and identity. Suh has an international exhibition record spanning over 10 years, and she is an associate professor of art at the University of Minnesota in Duluth where she lives and works.

Exhibition: UNDISCOVERED WORLDS. THE SECRET OF LACEBIRD
PAINTINGS BY PUSA
March 5-April 18 • Downtown Campus

Closing Reception: 3rd Friday, April 18 5-8 p.m. • Downtown Campus
Pusa (Piret Bergmann [Torim]) paints, draws, illustrates children’s books and writes. Bergmann said of her work: “I like little things in between big things, for example a small crack in a skyscraper’s foundation, the inside of a lemon peel, or a bubble in boiling porridge. I like to imagine life inside tiny things, I believe that there is brisk and colorful life inside the tiny things in life.” Pusa graduated from the Pärnu College of Estonian Academy of Arts and exhibited in solo and group shows around the world. She also has illustrated and written several children’s books. In 2008, Pusa received the yearly award of culture of the Pärnu County.
Sponsored by the Estonian Embassy in Washington, D.C., World Artists Experiences, Inc. and  SU Cultural Affairs.
