Artist’s Lecturer

February 2nd, 2006 by Adam

Timothy Hutchings, whose work is currently exhibited at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery, will present an artist lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, February 6 in Heritage Commons at Hall Residence Hall. Hutchings’ talk replaces a panel discussion originally scheduled for this time and location.

Hutchings, who lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y., earned a B.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1996 and an M.F.A. in sculpture from Yale University in 1998. He has attended several residency programs, including the Skowhegan School of Painting and the Atlantic Center for the Arts.

Gallery Director Catherine Amidon said, “Hutchings seeks form and function outside the art world, then reinserts what he finds back into the system from which he borrowed. These objects and non-objects that Hutchings produces often conceal themselves within the quoted dialogues, commenting on themselves with low humor and uncomfortable contrivance.”

Hutchings is represented by the I-20 Gallery in New York City. His work has been shown at the Moscow Biennial, the Salamanca Contemporary Arts Center and the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo and others in Spain. He has also exhibited at PS1 in New York, the Woodstreet Galleries in Pittsburgh, the New Museum in NYC and the Borusan Cultural Center in Istanbul.

Timothy Hutchings: Objects and Non-Objectswill be at the Drerup Gallery through March 4. The Gallery is in the Draper and Maynard Building on North Main Street in downtown Plymouth. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday, noon – 5 p.m, Wednesday, noon – 8 p.m. The gallery is closed holidays and Sundays. All events are free and open to the public. For information call the gallery at (603) 535-2614.
