Art Exhibit Open Sept. 2 at FHU
An art exhibit of works by Sara Good opens Sept. 6 in Freed-Hardeman University’s Troy Plunk Art Gallery with the artist’s talk at 5 p.m. Good’s “Pieces of the Field” consists of a series of sculptural works covering many different “fields.” The public is invited to attend the exhibit which continues through Oct. 2.
Good’s sculptural work over the last 20 years has been predominantly installation in nature. It includes temporary and permanent installations, both commissioned and non-commissioned works. Her work, she says, is “always comprised of mixed materials.” It employs a range of spatial formats, from expansive to self-contained. These include trailing and suspended arrangements, free-standing forms and structures, created environments, and the integration of various elements into existing wall spaces. “For me,” she said, “this approach to form and space easily relates to both interior and exterior application.”
Good feels that she has a connection with ground space, everything from the domestic arena to urban surfaces. During her involvement with this idea of “fields,” she has come to believe that fields are not all the same, and that they may never end. In fact, she says, “The space of garden, lawn, landscape, and urban surface became one-in-the-same.” She concludes that fields are measures of space, identity, and experience.
