EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY

July 14 – August 27, 2016
First Thursday gallery walk August 4, 6 – 8pm

Maria Lux begins her installation-based works with research culled from diverse fields, from evolutionary biology to film. “How we know what we know—especially through the lenses of many disciplines—forms the overarching interest of my work,” Lux explains. “And, significantly, animals have always been at the center of our production of knowledge. My work recognizes and explores the longstanding, essential role that animals play in human understanding.” Lux holds an MFA in Studio Art from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2012) and a BFA from Iowa State University (2006). She was the 2014 Artist in Residence at Willian Patterson University, NJ.
