Craig Pleasants Volume
Artist's Talk & Reception: April 24, 5:30, Wilson Hall's Concert Hall
Craig Pleasants creates sculptural structures that blur the line between form and function, architecture and art. Based on what he calls an "aesthetics of necessity," Pleasants uses alternative materials to expand the definition of shelter, housing, and home. In this exhibition, Pleasants will also present a series of drawings that illustrate the thought process behind his three dimensional pieces. Craig Pleasants has exhibited widely for over 30 years and has been recognized with numerous grants and fellowships from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the South Carolina Arts Commission, among others.
