FILAMENT: The Work of Bill FitzGibbons and Creighton Michael

  • FILAMENT: The Work of Bill FitzGibbons and Creighton Michael
    • Sep 16 - Oct. 31

I went to some museums in Knoxville, TN to see some exhibitions and they were worth the trip! I'm going to talk about the exhibition, FILAMENT: The Work of Bill FitzGibbons and Creighton Michael, at The Ewing Gallery of Art & Architecture University of Tennessee Knoxville the today.

The two artists had very different media and styles of work. Creighton Michael's paintings are abstract and almost iridescent. Bill FitzGibbons has a pieces of sculpture and a very interesting series of what I thought were paintings. Then, I saw the video of FitzGibbons creating his pieces using a torch to draw the images. I'm one of the people who will always look at the art work first then look at the printed info and finally checks out the video. I'm glad I looked at the vidoe, but the pieces on the wall were interesting enough.

With such different styles of work by the artist, they made an outstanding collaborative video installation with sound. Spend some time to look at the installation and get caught in the images.

I'm planning on another visit.
