Art exhibit presents nature through metal
DeKALB – The Ellwood House Museum will host “ANTHROTROPISM,” an M.A. thesis exhibition by Agnes Ma, April 25 through Sept. 27. An opening reception will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, April 25 in the Brauer Gallery on the second floor of the Visitor’s Center.
In the exhibition, Ma presents nature through sculpture and jewelry, utilizing human touch to reinterpret organic matter. Using sterling silver to starkly contrast found natural materials, this body of work re-examines the relationship between humans and their environment.
Ma is graduate student at Northern Illinois University, pursing a master’s degree in metalwork and jewelry. She received her bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, which is apparent in her artistic process. Her work will also be showcased in the upcoming “Confluence: 2013 Annual Juried Student Exhibition” at the Society of North American Goldsmith’s Annual Conference in Toronto.
