Arron Foster: A Place Between

June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
The Blue House is excited to present, A Place Between, new works by Arron Foster. This exhibition won’t be at Blue House though; it will be happening at Dayton’s oldest gallery in a house, Dayton Society of Artists running from June 4th-July 10th! You can check out Arron’s newest works Fridays and Saturdays 12-5pm and First Fridays 6-9pm!
About the Artist:
Arron Foster received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking and Art Education from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and his Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking and Book Arts from the University of Georgia, Athens Georgia. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has held academic appointments at the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio and Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Arron is currently the Inaugural Teaching Fellow in the Art and Integrative Core program at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio.
From the Artist:
As an artist I am concerned with how the physical landscape is transformed into a cognitive one and how personal and public spaces intersect in the stories we tell about a place and the way we choose to represent it. The consequence of this for me as an artist has been that most of the work I do whether its printmaking, book arts, video, or installation begins with a place, a site or location that becomes a jumping off point for my imagination.
Each project or series that I undertake is arrived at through an intuitive, research-based approach to observing, studying, and documenting specific locations with the hope of creating a dialogue between myself and the viewer that provides an opportunity for shared exploration and interpretation of places. I believe that by developing a shared understanding/familiarity with the physical world, we can encourage empathy for the spaces we occupy and perhaps encourage a greater sense of stewardship and care.
Recent projects such as Another Time, Stars to burn, and while the earth remains have been highly invested in looking at specific watersheds, namely the Oconee River in Athens, GA, the Cuyahoga River in NE Ohio, and the Hocking Rivers in Athens, Ohio as metaphors for time and change as well as sites in need of advocacy as they have been greatly affected by over development and climate change.
A Place Between is made possible through support from Montgomery County, Culture Works, The Blue House Arts, Dayton Society of Artists, and the Front Street Global Artist Initiative.
Along with the exhibition A Place Between, Arron Foster will be giving a public artist talk via zoom Thursday June 24th at 6pm. To join us for the artist talk via zoom, just click this link a little before 6pm on June 24th.
