The UTC Cress Gallery of Art opens its doors Monday June 3 for a summer exhibition offering a fresh and timely selection of seldom seen art from the UTC Permanent Collection. This exhibition will be open throughout freshman and transfer summer orientation to provide our future students and their parents an introduction to the Cress and the visual arts on our Campus.
It’s a colorful exhibition full of light and sound with subject matter from portraits to landscape, from the simple beauty of everyday interiors to ideas of fanciful cricket bats, and from meditative abstractions to the intricacy of finely detailed renderings.
The exhibition contains seventeen works by thirteen artists to include drawings, original artist’s prints, installation, and video. Works range in date of execution from 1923 to 2012. Featured are limited edition prints by prominent 20th Century British artists Patrick Caulfield, Robyn Denny, Patrick Heron, Gordon House, and John Hoyland; renowned Swiss artist Dieter Roth with a portfolio of original prints; a work from the Russian School of Voronezh acquired during a UTC Department of Art / Voronezh College of Art cultural exchange; American artists Daniel Garber, Herbert L. Fink, and those with special ties to UTC: Barry Moser, Ann Poss, Matthew Deleget (Fall 2012 UTC Diane Marek Visiting Artist), and Joseph Shipp (UTC BFA Graphic Design 2006).
Sources include a large gift from the Ackerman Foundation (1980), the UTC Chancellor’s BFA Purchase Award, and many gifts from the artists’ themselves.
Admission to the Cress is free so please don’t hesitate to take a short walk through or two or three; yet plan a longer visit to view these works to their fullest extent. Brief biographical and explanatory texts accompany each work. This exhibition references both the history of art in 20th and 21st Centuries and the place of Chattanooga and UTC within it.
