Rachel Perry Welty 24/7

January 28, 2012 - July 8, 2012

Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday & Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and the first Wednesday of each month (except August), 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August.

In Welty’s first solo exhibition, the 25 works created over the last ten years document what the artist calls the “business of living,” examining the effects of consumerism and information overload on our daily lives. Welty infuses such traditional media as drawing, photography, and sculpture with contemporary objects that – often unnoticed – accumulate around us: twist ties, fruit stickers, aluminum foil, receipts. She also has documented projects that incorporate technological developments of the past two decades, including the answering machine, digital photography, social media, the iPhone, and…karaoke. At first, her eye-catching designs and performances seem to be only humorous commentary; but when contemplated more closely, the viewer begins to recognize deeper issues of anxiety, compulsion, and inundation.
