DESCRIPTION

The Riverside Arts Center is pleased to present Dominican in the Round, a group exhibition featuring sculpture from Dominican University.  This exhibit marks the three year-old sculpture program’s first major off-campus exhibition.  Jane Arvis, Dorothy Bugalski, Kate Brown, Carly Connelly, Theresa Farris, Joshua Johnson, Douglas McGillivray, Brenda Ocampo, and Anthony Perri are among the exhibiting artists.

The works included span a variety of mediums.  They embody a diverse range of haptic experiences, from concrete physicality to ephemeral delicacy.  Ceramic, plaster, wood, metal, concrete, cloth, blood, paper, wax, and tissue are among the materials incorporated into the different pieces. Attention to presentation also plays a vital role.  Some pieces are intended to function in a variety of settings, while others are site-specific, including outdoor installation work in the sculpture garden.
