Truman State University Art Gallery Exhibit

October 20 - December 1

The Motion of the Crowd – Gregory Rick and Ryan Fontaine in Conversation
The Motion of the Crowd will combine Gregory Rick’s large-scale paintings with Ryan Fontaine’s kinetic sculptures. Rick’s narrative paintings explore his personal experiences and the contemporary moment in the sprawling context of empire and colonization. The sounds and atmospheric effects of Fontaine’s kinetic sculptures provide multisensory layers to the dynamic scenes.

Rick recently completed his MFA at Stanford University, winning a Dedalus Fellowship and SFMOMA’s SECA Art Award. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with HAIR + NAILS Gallery in Minneapolis, run and curated by Ryan Fontaine and Kristin Van Loon since 2016.

DrumRoll – Mary Ellen Childs – in the Charlyn Gallery
DrumRoll is the premiere of a new immersive audio-visual installation by Minneapolis composer and artist Mary Ellen Childs. Projected videos of a percussion performance on the walls and floor of the Charlyn Gallery give the viewer the experience of entering into the performance with a swirl of motion and drumsticks and drumheads coming in and out of view. This interdisciplinary exhibition is happening in collaboration with the North Star Music Festival held at Truman, October 21-22, 2022.

Monday-Thursday 8:30 am to 7:00 pm
Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
