Current Exhibition

Making Climate Change Visible by Carolyn Halliday

A Kolman & Reeb Gallery Project Space Exhibition

March 30 – May 11, 2024

Artist Reception: Saturday, April 13, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Music and Dance Performance: Thursday, May 2, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Artist Talk: Thursday, May 2, 7:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.

Embracing the sometimes denigrated term, “fiber artist,” Carolyn Halliday’s art is grounded in the use of textiles. Knitting wire is a favorite material and technique. Deeply connected to nature and influenced by two biologists/ecologists in her family, Carolyn’s work references the natural world and our environment.

For her Project Space Grant exhibition, Carolyn plans to present an immersive environment of installation art in the Kolman & Reeb Gallery related to climate change. Drawn from her experiences during the global pandemic lockdown of COVID-19, Carolyn hopes to summon gallery patrons' awareness of the increased clarity of the sky because of reduced commuter traffic. Secondly, her work will remind us of the smokey grey horizon we endured during the summer of 2023 caused by rampant forest fires. Finally, Carolyn asks us to consider the startling and colorful orange, red, and pink sunsets, made intensely more beautiful by the presence of heavy particulates that cause air pollution.
