Artist Reception: Thursday, Oct. 15 at 5 p.m.
“Memories of Inhabited Spaces” explores the creative process of contemporary artist Bob Dilworth. The traveling exhibition features large-scale, mixed-media paintings of human figures, sculptural dolls and abstraction on paper. The work is informed by conversational interviews with friends, stories collected from relatives and personal observations.
The exhibition focuses on Dilworth’s current phase of creativity evolving from a three-year exploration of tactile surfaces that incorporate mixed media. Dilworth’s work expands the concept of contemporary painting by including stenciling, spray paint, stitching, fabric and printed materials.
Organized by Rhode Island College and the Bannister Gallery, “Memories of Inhabited Spaces” is accompanied by an exhibition catalogue. www.ric.edu/bannister/oct_15.php
