Artist's Reception January 12th, 4 - 6 pm
"Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to present Traces of Myth, a group exhibition of works by five artists that reflects on the effect of history and the lure of narrative in our understanding and valuation of physical space. The show includes pieces by Chris Buck, Paul Hagedorn, Lisa Kereszi, Laura Noel and Landon Nordeman and will be on view from December 4, 2012 through January 26, 2013. Myth -- literally "a traditional story, which embodies and provides an explanation, aetiology, or justification for something such as the early history of a society, a religious belief or ritual" -- here refers to how each of these artist’s individual images are, respectively, traces of larger cultural identities. The paragraphs below explain how this notion is traced through these five artists' practices."
