Artist Claire Ashley, will lecture on her artworks in Cosmoculus. Exploring the notion of a dimensional painting, the allure of color, and the whimsical nature of art, Claire Ashley creates one-of-a-kind installations for viewers to enjoy. The inflatable sculptures also take on a life of their own as they billow in their environments alongside each other. The perceptible and even imperceptible movements that are generated through the process of inflating each of these sculptures connects to Ashley’s interest in the chaotic and unpredictable. 

This artist lecture will be open to the public on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 4:15 pm (EDT) in the Peeler Art Center Auditorium.

Out of Isolation features work from the DePauw University Art Collection that captures a sense of isolation, contemplation, reflection, and observation. The exhibition includes a wide range of media including paintings, photographs, drawings, prints, videos and Japanese screens that provide viewers with a contemplative environment encompassing remote landscapes, desolate streets, and empty interiors. Curated with assistance by DePauw University’s Klauser Fellow, Austin Canales, Out of Isolation visually articulates moments that many of us most likely have experienced during our remote living/working/studying during the past year and a half. The exhibition will be on view from August 30 thru December 10, 2021.

This gallery talk given by Director and Curator Maggie Leininger will be free  and open to the public in the lower gallery in Peeler Art Center.
