Rebecca Morgan to present “Homecoming” at the Woskob Family Gallery
Rebecca Morgan will present her solo exhibition “Homecoming” at the Woskob Family Gallery on Nov. 16 until Dec. 21.
The Pennsylvania native’s exhibition features ceramics, paintings, and works on paper that span from several years. Pieces in the exhibition include portraits of Morgan and her loved ones.
“Through a range of media and stylistic conventions, Morgan explores her rural origins, the inhabitants of her hometown, and the popularly held stereotypes about them. The artist places herself both as part of and at a critical distance from her subjects,” said a release from Penn State News regarding the exhibit.
“Influenced by traditions as varied as Brueghel, face jug pottery, and Mad Comics, she spans and conflates an array of divides including class, culture, geography, and politics. Questioning who looks at whom — and from what point of view — ‘Homecoming’ brings to the forefront how the position from which something or someone is observed can make other aspects invisible.”
In addition to the exhibit, Morgan will give a public talk on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. in room 315 of the Visual Arts Building. The opening reception will be at the Woskob Family Gallery on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
All events are free and open to the public.
