Clouse exhibit on display


The current exhibition at the University Art Department Gallery at SVSU is Peter Clouse’s work titled “Spatial Contingencies.”

The exhibit has been on display since Oct. 17 and will remain until Nov. 11. This coming Thursday, a reception will be held from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Clouse has a Master of Fine Arts in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from SVSU.

The exhibit combines the concepts of consumption, waste and recycling with textile traditions.

The art was created using enormous weavings that are a balance between the two dimensions created on a loom, and the third contingent on space.

“There is a marked complexity and sophistication of development in which my work has evolved from strictly two-dimensional hangings to the three dimensional installations of spatial experiences,” Clouse told the Art Department Gallery. “The tapestry wire-weavings hang with a colossal and monumental aspect. There are obvious references to digital technology, electronics and bandwidth with the materials used, creating not only physical spaces, but also digital spaces.”

All art gallery exhibitions, lectures and receptions are free and open to the public. For more information, visit
