Hooks and Spoons opens

Tuesday, February 10, 2004

The Buena Vista Art Gallery in Storm Lake will feature "Hooks and Spoons" the senior art exhibition of Tim Wirth from February 9-20.

Tim Wirth, an art major from Clear Lake, will display nine recent paintings.

"Growing up in rural Iowa, I've always been fascinated at how closely power and vulnerability exist. The farming lifestyle I experienced was independent and the work demanded command and control, yet life within that environment remained so vulnerable. I continue to encounter that relationship between power and vulnerability and it resonates in what I create."

A reception for the artist will be Friday, February 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the BVU Art Gallery. The gallery is open to the public, free of charge, daily in the Siebens Forum building. For more information, contact Mary Mello-Nee, Gallery Director, at 712-749-2143.
