Las Vegas, NV, March 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- For this exhibition, which will run through May 18th, 2009, Kelly has re-imagined the famed German Bauhaus school and its objectives as a female-run center for fine art, craft, and fabrication studies in Bouse, Az. Exactly 100 years post Bauhaus, the Bouse House of Kelly’s narrative must no longer edify its students with the merging of art, craft and technology. After the fall of capitalism and industry, the artist must learn to disengage creative enterprise from technology and manufactured materials, and relearn what it means to build.
Reflective of the structure of the Bauhaus curriculum, this exhibition will feature a “sampling” of the work by beginning students in the preliminary courses. As imagined by Ms. Kelly, this work consists of the exploration of color, materials, space and form that will provide the core fundamentals of student studies at the Bouse House project.
Ms. Kelly completed her MFA at UNLV in 2007. Her work has been exhibited in Nevada and beyond, including shows at Tilt Gallery in Portland, Punch and Soil Galleries in Seattle, as well as being included in the 55th and 56th Art Roundup at the Las Vegas Art Museum. Some of her other current projects include a residency in collaboration with Noelle Stiles at the Caldera Arts and the Stop and Glow project in association with the Las Vegas Arts Commission and RTA. Bouse House is Danielle’s first Solo Exhibition at Henri & Odette.
