Gallery Opening: "After Curfew" by Catie Newell
The College of Architecture is pleased to inaugurate the newly renovated Stubbins Gallery with After Curfew, an exhibition of the work of alumna Catie Newell. She will present her work at 6 p.m. in the Reinsch-Pierce Family Auditorium, with the opening of her exhibition in the Stubbins Gallery immediately following.
Newell’s work captures spaces and material effects, focusing on the development of atmospheres through exploration of textures, volumes, and the effects of light, or lack thereof. Her practice has been widely recognized for exploring design construction and materiality in relation to location, geography, and cultural contingencies.
After Curfew will run from October 8 to November 7, 2014.
