Taylor Professor of Art, Jonathan Bouw’s exhibit Incident on Gaston Pike and Other Works will be on display in the Metcalf Gallery of the Modelle Metcalf Art Building on the Taylor Campus from November 2 – December 7, 2018.

An artist talk and reception will take place Friday, November 2, at 6:00 pm in the Metcalf Gallery.

“For the past twelve years, I have traveled Gaston Pike between Yorktown and Upland Indiana, commuting between home and work," Bouw said. "While the landscape is relatively constant from one end of my trek to the other, during the course of the year, the visuals change in interesting and subtle ways. I have often been lost in thought while driving through the heavy rains of spring, the plowing of the fields, the planting of crops, the growth of the corn, harvest, tilling under the remaining stalks, and the icy grasp of winter. I have always been intrigued with the role the trees which pepper the landscape play in connecting the rolling farmland with the sky above. The main pieces in this show reference this connection and the conversation that exists between dirt and sky, earth and heaven.

"Also featured in this show is some of the commercial illustration work I have completed over the past few years," Bouw added. "There are book covers, book illustrations, and personal projects that all reference the concept of place, and the mysterious aspects of the spaces we call home.”
