Insosculation

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 to Friday, December 14, 2012
Urban Arts Space


Reception:

Saturday | November 3 | 6 to 8pm

This exhibition presents a group of artists from The Ohio State University Department of Art, past and present. Named for the natural phenomenon in which trunks or branches of trees grow together, Inosculation fosters a dialogue through the pairing of works by current and retired OSU Department of Art faculty and works by alumni of the Department's Master of Fine Arts graduate degree program.

Teaching and mentorship in studio arts shares much with this natural process. Using this natural phenomenon as a metaphor for the creative and personal intersection that occurs between faculty and student, the call for entries process engaged Department faculty to select alumni work that would be shown alongside their own in the exhibition. This process allows faculty to explore the vitality of their work as both a product of a shared experience and as an outcome of continued growth—the circumstances that create the intersection of two artists during a short period of time often form strong bonds that weave together creative, professional and even personal relationships that last years, decades and even a lifetime.
