Mohawk Valley Community College will host an art lecture and reception for artist Jenna North’s “Showroom: Post-Apocalyptic Interior Decorating” on Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 5 p.m. in room 225 of the Information Technology Building on the Utica campus.
The exhibit will present paintings and sculptural installations by PrattMWP Professor Jenna North. With North curating, her alter ego “Wendy Well” will include integrated selections from artists that she will represent in Post-Apocalyptic Interior Decorating.
The artist says the domestic décor of “Showroom” has aesthetic and conceptual connections to post-war retro futurism, suburban bliss, and 1950s housewife gone craft crazy, all wrapped up with a twist of the contemporary world energy crisis and the common doomsday themes popularized by Hollywood, Greenpeace, and the multitude of artists working with themes around environmental catastrophe and urban decay.
The exhibit will be on view through Nov. 1 in the Small Works Gallery, which also is in the IT Building. Gallery hours are 1-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday.
