"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

Monday, August 19, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, October 5, 2019 (All day)

The artist will present a lecture titled "Bro-sure: A Brief Look at the Art of Jack Balas" on Wednesday, August 28, at 7 p.m. in KAB 111. An opening reception will follow.  Balas is a Colorado-based artist specializing in figurative paintings and drawings in oil and watercolor. For the last 15 years, he has focused on depictions of the male figure, presenting them in a variety of personal and societal scenarios that project them far beyond the traditional role of portraiture. Employing painted language in the form of titles, phrases, and paragraph-stories, the works take on the strategies of annotated documents, maps and calendars, and yet by their very depiction the men found in them also take on the politics of visibility – queer visibility and male visibility in general. All events are free and open to the public.

"Harmony" Art Exhibit

"Harmony" Art Exhibit

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 (All day) to Monday, September 30, 2019 (All day)

Xiaoting Wang's current abstract exhibit combines western painting techniques with traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. By adopting Chinese splash-ink and freehand brushwork on rice paper, he creates abstract forms yet offers the viewer opportunities to discover realistic themes. He implements gouache, watercolor, and acrylic painting techniques, in addition to his personal and fluid movements. These pieces offer the visual language of his individualized technique into the expression of abstract art.

Rod Library's Fine & Performing Arts Collection unit will host another Xiaoting Wang exhibit in October 2019 with his most recent abstract art. For additional information about the artist, go to artsmell.com or contact him directly at wxiaoting16@gmail.com.

Location: Rod Library Learning Commons, 1227 W 27th St, Cedar Falls, IA 50614, USA
