Michelle Grabner: The Pleasures of Merely Circulating

Date Friday, September 22
through Wednesday, December 20, 2006
Location Olson Gallery

Event Description

A strong philosophical quest underlies all of Grabner's endeavors, ranging from a metaphorical interest in the pursuit of goodness, virtue, and beauty through the language of abstraction, to the simple question of what if means to live a good life.

Grabner invests herself wholeheartedly and prolifically in the making, teaching, writing, and curating of art. She is a professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and she runs The Suburban, an artist project space in Oak Park, Ill. She is a writer for numerous art magazines, and her work is exhibited regularly in New York, London, Chicago, and California.

Bethel University's Olson Gallery is pleased to announce The Pleasures of Merely Circulating, an exhibition of new work by Michelle Grabner. For this exhibition Grabner will complement her spare, hypnotic paintings made of spiraling dot patterns with recent works on paper, including etchings, monoprints, and punched-hole drawings.
