CenterStage launches fall season

Posted 09/04/14

David Lang "I Coulda Had a V8"The Fitchburg State University CenterStage arts and culture series opens its 2014-15 season with art and sculpture installations at locations across campus.

The kinetic sculptures of artist David A. Lang will be on display in the Hammond Hall Art Gallery from Wednesday, Sept. 17 through Wednesday, Oct. 22. The show will open with a gallery talk on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 3:30 p.m. in the gallery, located at Hammond Hall, 160 Pearl St.

“For the last several years my sculptural work has become largely kinetic and interactive,” Lang said. “It is often witty, profound and provocative. Much of it seems to exist in the realm of the unlikely. These days, my mind is in a whirl, trying to understand how to make very complicated things appear to be smooth, slow and coordinated.”

A video compilation of other pieces of Lang’s kinetic sculptures, entitled “Inventions, Contraptions & Flights of Fancy,” is on display on the Conlon Media Wall in Conlon Hall, 316 Highland Ave., through Wednesday, Oct. 8.

The work of artist Nancy Marks will be on display in The Gallery at Sanders in the Sanders Administration Building, 300 Highland Ave., from Wednesday, Sept. 17 through Wednesday, Oct. 22. Marks will give a gallery talk on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 3:30 p.m.

Marks has been a visual artist for over 25 years: first as a papermaker and now as printmaker and painter. This collection showcases both her paintings and mixed media work and highlights a recent project, “The Intimacy of Memory.”  With this new project, Marks examines why people choose particular objects during the healing process after someone close has died.
