Ruin & Revival II
Exhibition Dates: April 16 - May 20, 2021
About the exhibit
As we approach each spring, there is always the thought to how volatile the season may be any given year. Spring brings thoughts of new life, beauty and reemergence after the cold and bleakness that signifies winter. But when we see the new life coming forth with spring, we can also train the eye to notice the things that do not come alive again. While we look for what is new, we often notice also the decay and ruin left by winter or in other ways, the destruction of time. Or perhaps a commentary on our times living during a pandemic. So much to consider. Artists were encouraged to interpret this theme.

About Juried Exhibits
Dependent on the juror’s decision, an artist may find that all, some, or possibly none of their pieces are
chosen to be a part of the exhibition. Framations strives to promote excellent exhibitions that are juried to fit the exhibit space but also display the best quality work chosen from what is entered.
Juror: Ryan Horvath was born in Peoria, IL and spent his childhood in rural, central Illinois. Horvath received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bradley University in 2009 and his Master of Fine Arts from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville in 2012. While studying at Bradley University, Ryan’s love of drawing and sculpture coalesced when he carved and printed his first relief print. At that moment, his obsession with printmaking was born.
Ryan spent his formative years hiking and wandering in creeks and woodlands. This instilled in him a reverence and love for the natural world that continues to this day. Ryan’s passion for the beauty of nature is reflected in his meticulously-crafted prints that depict humble, iconic objects from the natural world. Ryan’s work can be found in galleries as well as public and private collections throughout the country. He currently resides in Edwardsville, IL where he is a professor of art at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Learn more about the artist on his website at ryanhorvathart.com.
