New Art Exhibit Opens at the DLP Art and History Center
The Aurora Public Art Commission has opened its exciting new fall show, “Faces Among Found Objects.”
The show features the work of nine artists: Bill Austin, Gary Brown, Joe Eddy Brown, Charles Heinrich, Tom Mahady, Kip Pasta, Greg Halvorsen Schreck in collaboration with Mark Woodworth and Anton Witek.
The title, “Faces Among Found Objects,” suggests a unifying factor for the art andartists. Each piece either features a face or was made out of found objects, and in some cases both criteria apply.
“I chose this outwardly descriptive title so that it would include these nineartists in an obvious way, but the underlying factor in my selection is that each of these creative people continues to influence me through their art and their friendships,” Guest Curator Bill Austin said. “They are multidimensional individuals who take the creation of art seriously but never cease to find the humor and adventure of life.”
“Faces Among Found Objects” runs through October 31, and can be viewed during gallery hours of Wednesdays through Saturdays, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., at the David L. Pierce Art & History Center, 20 E. Downer Place. Admission is free.
