SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – “Uberyummy: Contemporary Confections and Objects of Desire” is a collection of ceramic and multimedia installation artists who create super tantalizing environments that take viewers into worlds of consumerism, transformation, artificiality, mass reproduction and extreme behavior.
The exhibit runs Sept. 30-Dec. 15 at Cal State San Bernardino’s Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art. A grand opening reception takes place Friday,Sept. 30, from 6-9 p.m.
With an instant pop appeal, artists Tim Berg, Rebekah Myers, Kathy Butterly, Rebekah Bogard, Patsy Cox, Phyllis Green, Shane Keena, John Oliver Lewis,Charles Long, Phil Maberry and Scott Walker bring sculptures that visually stimulate, aurally animate and tactually tease, challenging the notions of gender, greed, gluttony, and glamour.
Artwork in the exhibit, co-curated by Alison Petty Ragguette and Karen Crews Hendon, ranges from iconic objects such as kitschy cha-chas, souvenir curios, and fantasy figurines, to mysterious anamorphic forms, the audience can encounter a range of perspectives and consequences that alternate between the surly and the savory.
