“Four White Walls and A Sermon” Features Work by Slick and Smick

Work by Duane Slick (Professor, Painting) and Martin Smick (Critic, Printmaking) is included in a new exhibition featuring paintings and installation that utilize abstraction to build structures that hinge on personal narrative and symbology.

The exhibition title, “Four White Walls and A Sermon,” is reference to both the physical space and ideological space created by the installation. Each artist embraces storytelling and myth-making by creating visual systems based on their ideologies, cultural heritage and histories of spiritual development.
