Upcoming Exhibit: John Silvis, Crash Course III

Silvis at BethelJohn Silvis: Crash Course III opens at Bethel University's Olsen Gallery on February 2nd.

With his third installment of Crashcourse at the Bethel University Olson Gallery in St. Paul, Minnesota, Silvis continues to explore crashed car imagery in art as existential metaphor. Referencing Andy Warhol's crash photo silk-screens and John Chamberlain's large twisted car metal sculptures, Crashcourse III includes stitched cars on felt that are presented on custom designed black and red car wallpaper, life size assemblage sculpture with felt, photography and drawing, and a series of discarded car parts on pedestals. Closing reception and talk will be held on March 1st at 6pm.
