Opening Reception: Thursday10.15.15, 6:00 - 8:00 PM, St. Charles Gallery, 2701 N. Charles
feat. Jacob Fossum (Hoffberger '07) & Magali Hebert Huot (Rinehart '15)
St. Charles is thrilled to announce that we are opening our doors for our inaugural exhibition curated by Dominic Terlizzi. Idle Idol features recent works by Jacob Fossum and Magali Hébert-Hout. Coined from Fossum's still lives, “Idle Idol” is about monolithic symbolized apparitions pacified by material labor.
Beginning at formal comparisons Jacob and Magali have uncanny overlap in the color, form, and arrangements within their studio projects. The works seem like they are from the same wheelhouse yet arrive in very different material and labor. For these two artists the works chosen are loosely crafted on iconography and tropes that appear universal, yet with further inspection hold clues to very unique personal poetics about place, ideology, and ancestry.

Arthur Levitt Teaching Fellowship at Williams College
The Levitt fellowship was established to give emerging artists an opportunity to experience working in academia. It consists of teaching two undergraduate classes which combine practice in two of the five arts disciplines taught at Williams. For example, a sound artist might propose a course in which music and studio practice is taught, in one course. The course descriptions required, as part of the application process, are meant to render a sense of the sort of coursework the applicant is capable of conceiving. It should be about one paragraph long, more like a catalog description, rather than a syllabus.
The deadline for applications is coming up soon, November 9th 2015. Application guidelines are attached.
