The Grossmont College Hyde Art Gallery is proud to present "Artist's Reception: Rain Events And Associated Investigation” by Jim Wilsterman.
With this new series, the artist’s objective was to directly capture various forces of nature to create images as opposed to traditional art making methodology that interprets or emulates nature through artist image making processes. Wilsterman started this series by trying to capture the force and impact of falling rain, and by using natural materials that directly respond to and record the influence of precipitation events on the earth's surface.
The exhibit consists of several panels that record precipitation on site at the college during the 2009 – 2010 Rainy Season. The work incorporates artifacts from the devastating fires experienced in San Diego County during the last 10 years, and examines the relationship between rain, drought, and man's effect on the cycles of nature. An opening event in honor of the artists will be on Tuesday, February 1st, 2011 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Admission is free. Parking is available during the exhibition with the purchase of a permit from the vending machine in lot #1F. Complimentary parking is available only on the evening of the opening in lot #1. Vehicles must be parked in designated parking stalls. The event will take place in the Hyde Gallery in the 200 Building Main Quad on campus.
