Lawrence Artist featured in Mudd Gallery

Paul Karner

Thursday marked the opening of a new student exhibit in the library’s Mudd Gallery. The exhibit is an installation by senior Danielle Dahlke. An art major from Antigo, Wis., Dahlke recently completed the piece as part of a self-designed independent study in installation art. Dahlke’s recent work has led her to explore the effects of space and location on a given piece. Her installation in the Mudd Gallery incorporates three pieces that were initially created last spring and have undergone significant changes between then and now. The exhibit displays some of Dahlke’s sketches of the installation so as to provide some insight into the evolution of the work beginning with its conception. “The pieces were supposed to be an outdoor exhibit,” Dahlke explained. “Now the focus is on how they look with a controlled light source in a sterile space.” Dahlke’s installation will be on display until November 3rd.
