Art opening reception: Detritus

Photo by Meghan Nicole

With material investigation as the foundation of their practices, artists Kat Cole, Laritza Garcia, Tara Locklear and Chesley Williams have constructed objects of adornment that employ found elements, remnants of industrial products and other alternative non-precious materials that carry meaning and hint at a purpose.

By observing their environments and taking up the practice of collecting, these artists have created inspiring jewelry and headwear that contain a gritty richness reminiscent of urban and industrial landscapes.

Incorporating detritus and evidence of human inhabitance, the works possess an artifact-like quality that not only presents a reinterpretation and recontextualization of ubiquitous materials but also allows the viewer to consider what the source materials reveal about contemporary society.

On view through Jan. 26.
