Nov 17-Dec 1, 2010
Opening: Wednesday, November 17th at Noon
Richland College is proud to present “Preference, Cognition, and Feeling” by Sue Anne Rische. The exhibition will be on view Nov 17- Dec 1, 2010. The opening reception will be in the Lago Vista Gallery (located in the Library) on Wednesday the 17th at 12:00 PM.
Rische holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas Tech University and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington. She has taught at Texas Tech University and is currently a member of the Fine Arts faculty at Collin College. She lives and works in Princeton, Texas.
Rische has attended the Hilmsen 1 Residency Program, Germany, the Vermont Studio Center and Portales Art Council Artist-in-Residence program.
With this body of work, I sought to create a space with images that encourage choices, and ask us to toy with the question of “What if?” The material I use is recycled plastic bags, which undeniably ties into the theme of choices and outcomes, though I don’t intend for the interpretation of the work to end there. My imagery is based off of one of my favorite pastimes: the point and click adventure game. What turns me on about these games is the puzzle solving, mysteries around each corner, and the choices we make both within them, and in playing them in the first place.

_ text below written by David Willburn, 2009_
Sue Anne Rische works with layers of materials and meaning. Collections of religious texts and hand crafted doilies and other lace and crocheted objects are reconstructed and renewed to create visual experiences that are both spiritual and humanist. Deconstructed religious texts and thrift store doilies and table cloths are used to create delicate and powerful soft sculptures and wall mounted objects. Spirals of lines and text, and the inclusion of found and hand-written “fortunes” contribute to her explorations of identity through sacred and secular storytelling. The use of words—The Word—and language give her work its power. The layering of multiple narratives—the forgotten and hidden stories behind the hand-made fabrics and the stories told in the documentation of religious philosophies—create an experience that is private and profound.
Richland Student Exhibition “Nature ReMix”
Richland College Student Art Exhibition
Lago Vista Gallery and other locations on campus.
Jan 28th-Feb 28th, 2010.
Opening reception: Thursday, Jan 28, 12-1 p.m.
Nature: ReMix is an opportunity to submit your interpretations of nature using any art form you choose. Award selections will be based on art emphasizing innovative views of nature, recycled material, and the importance of water to our society.
THEME: Twenty-first century views of nature in art have changed. The ability to define “natural” is influenced by the dramatic developments of DNA altered plants, test tube babies, cloned sheep, global warming, virtual reality and body alterations… Today we realize the fragility of nature as the population of mankind continues to grow. Will nature provide the tools and knowledge to survive into the next century? Can science save us from ourselves? Contemporary art reflects the times. What do you have to say?
Selection: A faculty committee will select art for the exhibit.
Awards: $350.00 in cash awards
Juror for Awards: Ryder Richards,
Richland College Gallery Coordinator.
