EXHIBITION XXXIV: THE MULTITUDES CONTAINED
July 27 - October 27
In the final exhibit of Aidron Duckworth's work at the museum, this exhibit examines themes of the multi-faceted self that would fascinate Duckworth throughout his life. Working in styles ranging from realist to cartoonish, beautiful to grotesque, Duckworth returned over and over to the multiple portrait and the multidimensional face. The multiplicity of the self becomes Duckworth's subject in place of the composition of features. Humans are complex amalgams - bodies and faces and memories and thoughts - and in these pictures Duckworth refuses to let them be simplified.
SEPTEMBER 14 - OCTOBER 27
This is the Aidron Duckworth Museum’s final exhibition.
Gathering works from the nearly 60 Guest Artists who have shown work at the Duckworth Museum, this festive last exhibit is an explosion of creativity for the museum galleries. Hung salon style, the hope is that this show is a forum to celebrate, commiserate, and reminisce as we move towards the final chapter of the Duckworth Museum’s history. This eclectic exhibit is a display of the enormous talents from which our museum has been able to benefit year in and year out. Thanks so much to all that have contributed their gifts as artists to make this institution the creative force it has come to represent in the last two decades.
