“Across- From Wall to Wall” Recap

Second-year MFA student Jonathan Hemelberg meticulously covered the expanse of Tent Gallery this past week, with his painting installation for the “Across- From Wall to Wall” exhibition.

A collected meditation on conservationist John Muir, the painting was accompanied by a poem containing a reassembled version of John Muir’s words, as constructed by Hemelberg-


Not all culture is equally destructive

To make a new departure

For pure wildness

Is well worthy of the attention

For all wildness is finer than tameness

Wildness as that which regards the world

Consumption of one another

And most when we are wildest

The MFA solo show series will continue 6 February, with work by Stephanie Ghetta. More information to follow!
