Featured Artist Exhibit: Ron Mier

Northern's Fine Arts Department presents a featured artist exhibit:

Ron Mier – Decade
Opening Reception April 10, 5-7 pm
Gallery Open April 10 - May 1, 2015
Monday - Friday, 11 am - 1 pm

The body of work chosen for this show spans about a decade of creativity. An exploration of Mesoamerican culture and ancestral connections through weaving are the engines that drive much of Mier's current work. An exploration of Mexico's ancient civilizations and living art fills a place in the artist's creative thoughts. Rivera, Siquieros, Tamayo; all were gargantuan contributors to the Mexican movement that helped to inform some of the art work in this show. At first glance some of these compositions may seem incongruous, the intersections oblique, but a strong thread of the artist's own experience brings them together.
