Gregg Blasdel: Bounty
January 25, 2013 - April 6, 2013
2012 Barbara Smail Award winner Gregg Blasdel explores social memory through objects and customs that recall cultural events, experiences and people. Raised in the Midwest, Blasdel was inspired by regional customs among farmers and ranchers who picked objects from fields or kept trophies from hunts and placed them on fence posts and barns. Blasdel created this installation over an eight year period by selecting objects from his everyday life that recalled a specific memory or interest.
The 2013 Barbara Smail Award recipient was announced at Bounty’s opening reception.
