Art Gallery Hosts Work of Renowned Artist

Coming this month, Crafton Hills College will be hosting the work of renowned artist Mary Sherman. Sherman's Waiting for Yves exhibit will be hosted at the Crafton Hills College Art Gallery from Feb. 17 through March 12. Described by the Boston Pheonix as "shoving the definition of traditional painting into the 3D and kinetic realm, with work that swings, slides and otherwise responds to viewers," Sherman's works have been shown both locally and internationally, including at Shanghai’s Zendi MOMA, Taipei’s Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Chicago’s Peace Museum, New York City’s Trans Hudson Gallery, Seoul’s Kwanhoon Gallery and Vienna’s WUK Kunsthalle. Waiting for Yves shows work that is psychologically charged, according to Crafton Hills College officials. "The walls are lined in blue oil stick. Their tactile surfaces insist on the under-valued sense of touch. Otherwise the room is essentially empty except for two barely perceptible lights and a deli-like ticket machine dispensing free artworks embossed and engraved with the alternating text, 'I can’t go on,' and 'I will go on,'" states a release from Crafton Hills. The artwork will be accompanied by a soundtrack composed by Yannick Franck of a trek through snow. Sherman is an artist, curator and the director of TransCultural Exchange, which she founded in Chicago in 1989. She also teaches at Boston College and Northeastern University and recently served as the interim Associate Director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT's) Program in Art, Culture and Technology. For two decades, she worked as an art critic for such publications as The Chicago Sun-Times, The Boston Globe and ARTnews. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 19 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and an artist’s talk is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb.17 at 1 p.m. in LRC-231. The CHC Art Gallery is located in the Learning Resources Center (LRC) of Crafton Hills College, 11711 Sand Canyon Rd., Yucaipa.
