Hannah and Blake Sanders: Stick/Stuck
September 5 @ 12:00 pm - October 22 @ 5:00 pm
Shaw Center for the Arts
100 Lafayette Street
Tuesday–Sunday 12–5 p.m.
Using traditional craft media and printmaking, Hannah and Blake Sanders explore how conventional notions of family, domesticity, and success affect our behavior as consumers and planetary neighbors. Stick/Stuck alludes to the joys and challenges of raising a family in a present dominated by human consumption and pollution. Pairing imagery of Mississippi River Basin, looming threats of hurricanes, and coastal erosion alongside images of their toddler children, Hannah and Blake Sanders examine an uncertain ecological future. Their work evokes comfort and discomfort, hope in hopelessness while also serving as both an indictment and celebration of their own domestic bliss.
This exhibition is part of LSU School of Art‘s Lineages exhibition series featuring School of Art Alumni. Glassell Gallery is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
