Tom McGlynn Opens Exhibit at GMC’s Feick Arts Center
POULTNEY, VT – “Test Patterns and Paths,” an exhibit from Castleton State College Prof. Tom McGlynn, opens at Green Mountain College’s Feick Fine Arts Center January 19.
An artist reception will be held Thursday, January 22 from 4-6 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
“Test Patterns and Paths” includes paintings, drawings and sculptures from 2002-2008. The exhibit explores themes of proportional growth, pattern generation and color as experience and memory.
“In this current body of work I am interested in a plotting a type of pragmatic progression, not exactly mathematical, although related to ideas of dynamic symmetry and progression,” according to a recent artist statement from McGlynn. “The geometry in these works is more akin to a contemplative ramble or a meandering path with uneven intervals and unexpected twists and turns.”
McGlynn teaches design, painting and drawing at Castleton State College, and his practice encompasses abstract painting, drawing and sculpture as well as video installation. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The Smithsonian Design Institute and in the Fogg Museum of Art at Harvard University. His images have been reproduced for the cover of Artforum magazine and featured in articles in the New York Times and in New York Magazine.
“Test Patterns and Paths” will be on display until February 20. The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m.
