I hope your first few weeks have been exciting and interesting. The day after Labor Day, September 8, 2009 @ 6 pm find your way to the Truman Art Gallery for food and art. Come and socialize with the artists, professors and fellow art lovers. The current works of Wynne Wilbur, Priya Kambli, and Aaron Fine will be featured in the exhibit “3” presented by the Truman State University Art Department. The show runs through October 9, 2009. I have written a bit about the artists and included a few pictures of their work here just to give you a taste of what will be on display.
“The object of art is to crystallize emotion into thought, and then fix it in form.” Francois Delsarte
Wynne Wilbur will have her latest ceramic work on display in the side gallery. She describes this work as “a celebration of life.” Incorporating the practical application of a variety of vessels with “gestural representations” of fruits and vegetables, her work suggest a light hearted and intimate connection with nature and life.
Aaron Fine will have his works on paper displayed in the main gallery. Utilizing drawings of the first words from his young, images from his travels, and singular colors as subjects Aaron uses his drawing to suggest literary themes connected to language, perception and history.

Priya Kambli’s digital photography, also in the main gallery, encompasses and combines her personal history with two very different cultural experiences. She embraces “the gap between the two cultures” and endeavors to express the duality of her identity. Using digital photography allows her to reflect the tension caused due to this duality.
