The Murray State Department of Art & Design and the University Galleries are pleased to announce an artist talk by Albertus Gorman, an environmental/public artist from Louisville, Kentucky, as a part of the Folk Fiction art exhibit. The artist's talk will be held on October 19, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Room 623, 6th Floor of the Fine Arts Building, off the Clara M. Eagle Gallery.
About his sustainable art installations, Gorman offers the following statement:
"Since 2003, I have been exclusively making art in its many forms at the Falls of the Ohio State Park in Clarksville, Indiana, across the Ohio River from my adopted hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. The park is a signifiant, dynamic, and living space with an extensive natural and cultural history that I often reference in my works....I believe that there is an environmental imperative that art can help address. Part of my artistic drive is to work as sustainably as possible. All the materials I currently work with have been cast off and swept into the park through periodic flooding along the Ohio River Valley's watershed. All my sculptures and installations incorporate both natural and artificial materials."
