The UTC Cress Gallery of Art will present the works of Ian Pedigo from February 8 – March 21. All events and the exhibition are open to the public and free of charge. The gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Cress Gallery of Art is located in the lobby of the UTC Fine Arts Center.

As part of the Marek Visiting Artist Series, Pedigo will give his artist’s lecture on Tuesday February 8, at 5:30pm in room 356 of the UTC Fine Arts Center. The lecture will be followed by an opening reception. Pedigo will also be on campus and in the community for activities February 7 – 10, in association with his exhibition, “Living Daylights.”

“With the Marek Series, students see and speak with artists whose work not only has relevance to their goals, but who themselves are actively engaged  in the contemporary arts environment which our students will enter upon fulfillment of their degree programs,” Ruth Grover, Director and Curator of the Cress Gallery of Art, said.

In his exhibition, “Living Daylights,” Pedigo will present eight new works, none previously exhibited, and most assuming their first form in the Cress Gallery. Arranged on the gallery’s walls and floors, and suspended in its open spaces, the totality of the work presents an environment that shifts and sifts through memory to settle as unspoken visual narratives that suggest mysterious cause and effect.  Pedigo’s compositions relate to real experience of the physical world and transform artistic formalism into an encounter with the sublime.
