Opening of Three New Shows at Abel Contemporary

Fri June 5

Free

We present Ryan Myers Put Your Boots On, Constructed Landscape : A Group Show, and Pranav Sood Life is About Love and Love is Complicated in no. 5.

Opening Reception: At this time we are unable to confirm if it will be possible to have an artist opening reception. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and heed all recommendations of the CDC, Departments of Health and our local elected officials. It may not be possible to host a large gathering on June 5th and our possible plans include virtual Zoom openings and/or limited participant RSVP only events. Please check our website for the most up to date information.

Ryan Myers: Put Your Boots On
Madison based ceramicist, Ryan Myers, has long been fascinated with toys, cartoons, and American Folk Art traditions. Synthesizing these visual sources, Myers crafts utilitarian vessels and sculptures that speak to both youthful pop culture and an ancient history. This body of work was inspired in part by Myer’s daughter’s rain boots, which featured frog faces on the toes, and the common refrain of telling her to get on her boots. The phrase gestures toward a variety of possibilities– the beginnings of an adventure, the hard work ahead, and the playfulness of wearing animal face boots.

Constructed Landscape: Group Show
Landscapes, painted, photographed, or otherwise evoke thoughts of untamed wildernesses and untouched nature; however, these scenes are rarely as wild as we are led to believe. This exhibition explores the obvious and unseen man-made forces that shape our landscapes featuring work in a variety of 2-D and 3-D media. Artists in this exhibition include: Ann Orlowski, Robert Farrell, Mary Fischer, Kay Brathol Hostvet, Jonathan Wilde, Allan Servoss, William Lemke, Eric Thomas Wolever, Kyle Johns, James Wade, Tiffany C. Bailey, Mike Rebholz, and Chris Gargan.

In no. 5: Pranav Sood Life is About Love and Love is Complicated
Born in Punjab, India, Pranav Sood creates bold, large scale acrylic paintings inspired by traditional art from his home. These meditations on familial and romantic relationships feature abstracted human and animal forms adorned with bright painstakingly-rendered patterns and lines. This body of work, Life is About Love and Love is Complicated, is Sood’s final project at the University of Wisconsin— Madison Masters of Fine Art Program.
