Current Exhibition 

Now Playing: Art Inspired by Movies

September 5th - October 20th, 2015

The Studio and Cheri Blackerby Gallery are pleased to present Now Playing, Art Inspired by Movies.

Film plays an important role in our society. Films are cultural artifacts which reflect culture, and in turn, affect them. Film is an important artform, a source of popular entertainment, and a powerful medium of communication.

Avatar and Titanic are the two highest-grossing films worldwide, each blockbuster earning more than two billion dollars. However the power of film cannot be measured in dollars, only. Films like The Wizard of Oz (1939), Citizen Kane (1941), The Godfather (1972), and Star Wars (1977) have come to define American popular culture.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was the first full-length animated film with color and sound, a pioneer in film history. One of Disney's greatest films, Snow White held the record for the highest-grossing animated film for 55 years. Frozen (2013) is currently the highest-grossing animated film.

Unpopular with mainstream audiences, but recognized for their large, zealous fanbase, cult classic films include Night of the Living Dead (1968), Pink Flamingos (1972), Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), and The Big Lebowski (1998).

Film is a powerful medium for visual artists, who navigate the world in pictures. Film is capable of transcending time and culture, broadening our experience and understanding.

Film enables us to imagine the unimaginable and connects us to the past, the present, and the future. Great art even allows us to see ourselves, through a different lens.

Now Playing will feature art inspired by movies and television, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and video.

For this exhibition, Dustin Card, Lisa Green, and Holly Sepulveda have painstakingly sculpted iconic film characters: Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent), Barnabas Collins (Dark Shadows), and the Tin Man (The Wizard of Oz). The clay figures are modeled in the likeness of the actors who embodied these memorable roles.

With the rise of video and digital technology, artist Ken Waldvogel reflects on the disintegration of film as a medium; “Lost in Time” is a ceramic sculpture of a decaying film reel. Reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty in the final scene of Planet of the Apes, Ken said he wanted the viewer to “feel as though they found the film reel washed up on the shore.”
