TRASH TALK goes on the road!
Studio Kroner is pleased to announce that TRASH TALK, which premiered in our gallery this past fall, is traveling to Dayton, OH, for a month-long show at the Edward A. Dixon Gallery, a gallery specializing in exhibitions, education, and appreciation and sale of International art.
TRASH TALK features artists Devan Horton and Paul Kroner, who shine a light on trash and its literal and metaphorical implications.
TRASH TALK opens with a public reception on Friday, March 3, and runs through March 25, 2023
Devan’s “Penchant” series is designed to confront our cultural obsession with consumption and waste. “Penchant” pulls the viewer in with the idea that we are our own invasive species. Horton says that a lot of her work throughout college had to do with invasive species and swarming organisms, but the subject of trash stole her focus. “While on hikes looking for things to paint, I’d find trash all the time. It became what an invasive human species looks like and grew from there.”
For his part in the exhibition, Kroner’s series entitled “Box News” takes on the toxic and nonstop news cycle. Using corrugated boxes found curbside on trash day as his canvas, Kroner prompts a discussion on how these boxes have become an ever-present symbol of our capitalistic society and a fitting canvas for portraits of people who “litter our airwaves and bombard us with an endless parade of lies and propaganda.”
“I’m excited to have the Trash Talk exhibition travel to Dayton and the Edward A. Dixon Gallery,” says owner Ed Dixon. “Raising awareness on important issues and hopefully sparking action is always one of the gallery’s missions.”
TRASH TALK opens with a public reception on Friday, March 3, and runs through March 25. You can learn more at www.eadgallery.com/exhibitions/
