“Within//Without” by Merecedes Nelson: Opening Reception
March 3 @ 5:00 pm
Merecedes Nelson will be showcasing brand new work at the Schultz Gallery in the Washington Pavillion. The reception will be First Friday March 3rd from 5-8pm, and the show will be up through June.
Artist statement: I’ve been studying electrical towers and poles, as well as their outstretching lines and documenting them with a polaroid camera. I feel that I’ve always been drawn to them; these huge structures erected all over our land, seeming like shrines raised to honor some long forgotten deity. Sometimes it seems as if they are so very lonely, but the lines are like arms, grasping towards others in some kind of electric, holy communion. I have thought about these in relation to us as humans within our communities, and how it is so easy to feel alone without realizing just how connected we are to everyone around us, especially within our own urban communities.
Special thanks to the Sioux Falls Arts Council for making this show possible and for always supporting local artists.
