A Colored Image of the Sun

Jul 27, 2019 - Nov 10, 2019
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Polk Museum of Art is pleased to present A Colored Image of the Sun, a solo exhibition by artist, Kelly Sturhahn. Sturhahn’s work explores notions of the sublime in nature from a contemporary viewpoint, simultaneously considering experience, perception and transformation. Favoring process and experimentation, her practice combines the unconventional with the traditional, incorporating a range of tactile materials to create paintings on cut fabric, ink drawings, and large-scale installations comprised of textiles, such as hand-sewn sequins and painted lace. Drawing on nature’s intricate, ever-changing phenomena, these works translate sensory experience, and often reinterpret nature abstractly as shapes, patterns, color, light, and movement. 

Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland is open Tuesday - Sunday. Admission to this Central Florida museum is always free thanks to generous sponsors.
