Works by East Tennessee sculptor Angelique Lynch are on display through Feb.17 at the Allison Gallery on the Tusculum College campus.
Lynch has a MFA from East Tennessee State University in sculpture and is well versed in many processes including stone carving, metal fabrication and woodworking techniques. She grew up in Jonesborough and now lives in Piney Flats.
The work investigates social patterns associated with preconceived roles of gender and how those patterns relate to housework. The artist experiments with an array of different materials including wood, stone, steel and bronze that are fashioned into forms such as irons, ironing boards and clothes pins.
Lynch describes her work as “an endeavor to elevate ordinary household tools into artworks with meaningful resonance.” The household tools of daily life become surrogates for her personal symbols and thoughts.
A reception for the exhibit will be held 4-6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 17. For more information about the artist, contact Angelique Lynch at email@example.com.
The Allison Gallery is open daily from 3:30 – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
