Exhibit of dimensional art on display at Archabbey Library Gallery
Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery in St. Meinrad is hosting an exhibit of two-dimensional and three-dimensional works by Ferdinand artist Curtis Uebelhor. The show will run from January 10 through February 20.
Uebelhor works with found or discarded objects or surplus bits and pieces to furnish wry commentary on social issues such as education or the environment. The carefully selected items are gathered slowly until the perfect objects are found to express the idea. He incorporates humor into his work as a way to involve the viewer. The work is both visually arresting and fun.
In a new series, “Drive by Archeology,” his method is altered slightly as the objects in a single work are collected at a specific time and location. Chance becomes an important part of these pieces, as objects must be discovered and selected “in the field.”
Uebelhor has a fine arts degree from the University of Southern Indiana and a master’s in fine arts in sculpture from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. He works primarily in assemblage/collage with occasional forays into painting.
He has participated in many juried shows and exhibitions. His work is found in public and private collections, including the Sheldon Swope Museum, the Mobile Museum of Art, and the Kentucky Foundation for Women.
