Juror Elizabeth Carney is currently Assistant Curator at the Akron Art Museum, where she organizes and oversees exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Among her current and past exhibition projects are “Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose;” “PULP;” “Staged;” and “John Pearson: Intuitive Structures.” She received her MA in Curating the Art Museum from The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, England, after earning her BA in Art History from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, and trained in various art media at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio. Elizabeth’s past curatorial projects include organizing the exhibition “Portrait of the Artist As…” at The Courtauld Gallery, London, and internships at Tate Modern, London; Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Ohio; and Cleveland Public Art. Her research focuses on globalism in art as well as peripheral aspects of art viewing experiences, including installation practices, photographic reproductions of art, and technology in museums.
In conjunction with the exhibition, visiting artist Colette Fu will lead a pop-up book master workshop. Fu, a Philadelphia-based artist, teaches artmaking as a way to give voice to communities through pop-up paper engineered projects. Her work uses real and implied movement in an effort to examine cultures and the idea of self within society. Spend an evening learning Fu’s techniques for “pop-up paper engineering” from 6 – 9 pm on Monday, January 23. $15 resident; $20 non-resident. Call Rosewood Arts Centre at (937) 296-0294 for information and to register.
Hours for the exhibition are Monday through Thursday, 9am – 9pm; Friday, 9am – 6pm; and Saturday, 9am – 3pm. Rosewood Gallery is sponsored by the City of Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department, with support from the Kettering Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.
