Gamaliel Rodríguez reception: ‘Reminiscent of Time Passed’

601 Turner Blvd.

Join us for a reception celebrating “Reminiscent of Time Passed,” an exhibition by artist and U.S. Army-veteran Gamaliel Rodríguez, on view Thursday, May 12, through Sunday, Aug. 21, 2016. Rodríguez’s nondescript industrial landscapes of Puerto Rico and U.S. territories are gleaned from his own personal experiences, travel and imagination. These haunting monochromatic images in ballpoint, acrylic inks and Sharpie markers are at first specific and familiar to visitors, while also unexpected and extraordinary in their scale and design.

The exhibition features recent works on paper, as well as “Figure 1737,” a 45-foot ballpoint pen drawing commissioned by the SCAD Museum of Art. “Figure 1737” depicts Fort Benning, Georgia, and its surrounding areas, created from memory.

“Reminiscent of Time Passed” is curated by guest curator Aaron Levi Garvey.
