Demuth Museum Executive Director Anne M. Lampe explains that “the focus of this exhibit is the architect. Architecture itself serves as a great source of inspiration for many artists, but we are interested in seeing how artists may be inspired by the people who create a different type of art from themselves. We’ve invited this year’s participants to think about an architect they’ve studied or worked with as their source of inspiration for this exhibition.”
The artists participating in this year’s exhibition include: Eva Stina Bender, Jack Bingham, Ann DeLaurentis, Casey Dixon, Reed Dixon, Paula Egolf, Paul Engleheart, Ron Ettelman, Dorothy Frey, Milt Friedly, Jeff Geib, Claire Giblin, Susan Gottlieb, Gail Gray, John Herr, Jon L. Johnson, Rick Kent, Paris Llanso, Robert Lyon, Carol Morgan, Richard Ressel, Brant Schuller, Mimi Shapiro, Suk Shuglie, Ellen Slupe, Eric Weeks, Christine Welch, Dick Whitson and Steve Wilson.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, February 3, 2012 from 5-8 p.m. in conjunction with First Friday festivities. Regular Museum Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10-4 & Sunday, 1-4.
