'Inner Space' Exhibition Opens at Tinnin Center Art Gallery
The Tinnin Center Art Gallery in Poplar Bluff will continue its 2017-18 season with "Inner Space," an exhibition featuring the works of Minnesotan sculptor Kim Matthews.
The exhibition will launch with a free artist lecture by Matthews at noon on November 3 in Room 108 of the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center on Three Rivers College's Poplar Bluff Campus. "Inner Space" will be displayed in the Tinnin Center Art Gallery November 3 – December 8, 12 – 3 p.m, Monday through Friday.
This exhibit explores the tension between dualities through reliefs and freestanding works in cast paper, wood, canvas, metal, and other media. Matthews, whose sculpture is rooted in a long-term meditation practice, creates sculptures that translate her experiences of expanded awareness into visual form.
Kim Matthews is a sculptor from Minneapolis, Minnesota, though her childhood years spent in Alaska and Maine have influenced her work. She works in a variety of media including cast paper, felt, vinyl, wood, canvas, concrete, and found objects. She has exhibited her work in nonprofit and commercial galleries and museums across the United States. For more about the artist and her works, visit www.kimmatthewsart.com.
The 2017-18 Tinnin Center Art Gallery season will continue on January 25 with "Generative Conversations" by Lisa Sisley-Blinn. For more information on upcoming arts and culture events at Three Rivers College, visit trcc.edu/tinnin.
