A truly amazing gallery has just opened up at the Gelb Gallery from now until October 21. Meg Lipke’s exhibition centers around the trope of shapeshifting described as the changing from one state to another. Her work in this gallery is meant to promote dialogues on varying topics such as authorship since some of the pieces were created by Meg Lipke herself, others by her grandmother, and others she found.
Lipke was born in Portland, Oregon, and was raised in a few different towns including Cheshire, England. As she grew older she received her MFA from Cornell University and began teaching at a few different schools, including the University of Northern Iowa and the Pratt Institution. Her artwork has been shown nationally as well as internationally and has been reviewed by many outlets including the New York Times and Art in America.
The exhibit will have a closing reception on October 21, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., in which the public is welcome to attend. The gallery is open during school hours and is handicap accessible. For more information on Meg Lipke check out her website here.
