Loosely Bound: Exhibition at (106) Gallery and Studio

  • July 10, 2015
  • Off campus

July 10–August 21
The Calvin College Department of Art & Art History is proud to present LOOSELY BOUND, an exhibition featuring the work of five female artists: Mandy Cano Villalobos, Ann Chuchvara, Maureen Nollette, Tori Pelz, and Miriam Wassenaar. This exhibition combines a variety of mediums, and each artist attempts to grasp the ephemeral through repetitive and laborious processes.

Reception and Art Market

6-9pm, Friday, August 7


Time passes. We try to make sense of the relentless advance of hours, laboring to mark our lives with meaning. We create myths, holidays and anniversaries to remind us of our own significance, or to affirm a calendric passage of time measurable by human standards. Loosely Bound reflects upon these efforts to grasp the ephemeral through labor-intensive work. Repetition and a minimal palette infer absence and the evasiveness of time itself, as though the works we see are only partially perceived. This vacuous quality is further evident in the artists’ use of fragile paper scraps, unraveled string, and cast shadows. Quiet but intentional, Loosely Bound engages the transience of our existence in ways both intimate and alien.
