The Shrine of Realization and other Extraordinary Objects and Visionary Images by Mark Soppeland

January 11- February 17, 2018

The HSG Akron location will celebrate its winter exhibition featuring lit sculptures and new paintings by established artist: Mark Soppeland. His current work is engaged with three interconnected investigations. They are all related to his interests in found objects and images. Mark believes "the use of cultural detritus brings complex symbolic and cultural baggage to a meeting with efficiency and historical process, creating greater potential to evoke multiple levels of associative memories". This concern for memory is related to his larger investigation of the "mental processes that is at the core of our self-awareness, our sense of existence and the fragile nature of sanity".

We are excited to exhibit for the first time Mark Soppeland's newest investigation, his Organic Algorithm series of paintings. This series involves creating multiple layers of various materials: metallic pigments, paint, pencil, binders and paper that are repeatedly established and removed.

In our boutique gallery, we will show never previously exhibited select works by Marvin Jones. Marvin Jones began teaching art in 1964, and taught printmaking at Cleveland State University from 1974 until his death in 2005. He has had over 75 solo exhibitions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and his work is included in over 40 public collections throughout the world.
