Purdue Galleries presents Leah Yerpe: Constellations

Tuesday, September 2 - Saturday, October 11

Robert L. Ringel Gallery, Stewart Center

The bodies in Leah Yerpe's large-scale works are multiplied in different poses, twisting, floating and falling on a ground purged of contextualizing marks. The models are not posed and have free reign to move in an immediate, improvised dance. This looseness contrasts with a fastidious drawing technique, wherein the bodies are captured as if formal elements in a collage. Gallery hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours to 8 p.m. on Thursday.

Purdue Galleries presents Jenny Morgan: Transcendental Supra-mental

Tuesday, September 2 - Saturday, October 11

Fountain Gallery, 330 Main Street, Lafayette

The scale of Jenny Morgan's works amplifies the intimate relationship her audience has with each painting and helps to create a larger-than-life version of her subjects. Morgan builds on the technical intricacies of her hyperrealism by wearing down, scrubbing away or painting over many of the features of her subjects. For the artist, wearing away at the subjects is at times an emotional roller coaster that is derived from the personal relationship and feelings she has towards the painting's subject. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from noon to 7 p.m.
