Allison Uttley Bianco solo exhibition at HPU Art Gallery
MFA alum Allison Uttley Bianco has a solo exhibition Go Ahead and Sink opening at the Hawaii Pacific University Art Gallery on January 23, 2011.
Go Ahead and Sink pictures unfortunate ships being swallowed up by the ocean. This exhibition deals with natural perils and their absurd relationship to personal nostalgia. Since the fragile vessels share names with family members and friends they become linked with memories and history. The drawings represent frozen moments just between floating and sinking where sinking always wins, but hope for floating still remains.
Opening reception: January 23 from 4-6 pm.
Exhibition dates : January 23 - March 4, 2011
Gallery hours at HPU Art Gallery: Monday - Saturday, 8:00 - 5:00 pm
