This June, I will be a Project-based Artist in Residence at the Lawrence Arts Center. During this residency, I am executing a large print-based installation at the Cider Gallery in Lawrence, Kansas. I will also have a solo exhibition at the Golden Stag Gallery in Kansas City. More information to come!
Now on display at the Sleeth gallery; Plagued is a solo exhibition of my recent works that examine illness, death, and the impermanence of the body. These multi-media works explore the collision of attraction and disgust, and how it creates a difficult beauty and a pleasant anxiety. The exhibition showcases works which blend figurative, street art, and traditional printmaking practices. More photographs of the exhibition can be found at http://tonjatorgerson.com/.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 3rd at 4:30pm with an artist’s talk to immediately follow at 6:00pm in the gallery.
