Play of Light: Works by Jane Guthridge Exhibition at Littleton Museum
Jenny Hankinson, Curator of Collections, 303-795-3954
The Littleton Museum is pleased to announce their latest exhibition, Play of Light: Works by Jane Guthridge. Located in the Fine Arts Exhibition Hall, the exhibition will be on view June 28 to August 25, 2019.
Inspired by the brilliance of Colorado’s sunshine, Jane Guthridge succeeds in manipulating thin, layered materials and altering the directionality of light. Playing with the very nature of light, she manages to capture the intangible by copying shapes made by natural dappled sunlight and shadows, then abstracting those compositions. Whether suspended, layered, or reflected, the “light forms” she creates evoke familiar visions of a moment in nature.
“I have always been interested in looking closely at nature and find that the vast areas of wilderness in the West allow for a deeper contemplation of the ethereal qualities of the natural world – the rich colors of the land, the gentle curve of plants, the patterns of dappled light through trees. I abstract and reconfigure these patterns to convey the underlying rhythms and harmonies of our environment, creating a space that is somewhere between the real and the imagined.”
Guthridge, a native of Ohio, has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the past few years. Several of her works have been purchased for corporate and public art collections. The recipient of several artist residencies and awards, she was recently invited to contribute to the Art in Embassies program, administered by the U.S. Department of State. She was commissioned to create a wall sculpture for the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu, Nepal. Jane Guthridge is represented by Space Gallery, in Denver, CO.
This exhibition will feature a combination of large installation pieces and smaller dimensional work by Guthridge, inviting visitors to explore the transcendent nature of light across various media and dimensions.
The Littleton Museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.. The museum is closed on Mondays and major holidays
