Two Old Friends in Paints and Pots: Recent and Retrospect
Walter Piehl Jr., & Ned Krouse Exhibit
Shane Brinster Exhibit
August 14 - October 10, 2014
Shane Brinster lives in Sawyer and
was born in Grand Forks, ND. Shane relocated to the
Southwest at an early age, until returning to ND in 1999. He attended the University of New Mexico, where he studied video editing, Raku and sculpture. While originally trained in the cello, he was active in the Minot music as a singer for the band 3C, and continues to explore electronic music.
Shane’s work is postmodern; incorporating aspects of Pop Art, Graffiti Art and Abstract Expressionism. The primary inspirations for his current work are media which appropriates existing forms, re-contextualizing them and synthesizing entirely new creations. His current work seeks to juxtapose 20th century cultural archetypes of elegance with a more modern, gritty and urban style; both in content and execution. He utilizes a graffiti stencil technique while applying the aesthetics of a more traditional silkscreen approach. As an emerging up and coming artist, the public is invited to come in and check out this opportunity to expand their collections.
An artist reception will be held on September 19 from 5:30 -7:00 PM in conjunction with the Walter Piehl/Ned Krouse exhibition, which will be held from September 2 – October 10, 2014.
Normal Museum and Gift Shop hours are: Tuesday – Friday: 10:30 am – 5:30 pm and Saturday: 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
