Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature – Opening Reception
“Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature” marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than fifty works in various mediums will be on view throughout the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output. The exhibition includes a monumental sculptural installation; a site-specific, volumetric wall drawing; and a collaborative animation, as well as digital and traditional prints, photographs, and ceramics. Shotz’s practice examines the properties and interactions of light, gravity, mass & space. She bridges disciplines in her work, drawing on scientific methods, mathematical principles, and literature, among other diverse fields. The opening reception for “Force of Nature” is May 21 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm and will include complimentary refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres.
