OPENING: 2021 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition Featuring works by Katie Prock and Kaila Rutherford
Kaila Rutherford will exhibit several works from “Deconstructing Cartography,” a series of mixed media collages combining maps, colored inks, and thin laser cut wood. Her use of cartography and mapping structures investigates memories and human relationships with place and location. All of the works employ collaged or dissected maps as a base upon which the artist adds abstract and free-flowing ink pours that suggest a contrast between the physical and natural environment and the regulated and precise details of maps.

Katie Prock will present several works from “Yesterday We Were Girls,” an ongoing project that explores her past within a strict Mennonite family and community. Prock combines photographs from her family albums with current images she creates of the women and domestic environments of her childhood memories. In this intimate body of work, Prock alters her photographs by adding and removing visual and written information. Through fragmenting, tearing, and sewing back together, she reveals the disjointed sensations and selectivity of memory.
The exhibition will continue until Friday, July 30, but will be available by appointment only by calling the University Galleries Office at 561-297-2661.
