|Grand Forks artist opens exhibit Feb. 1 at Third Street Gallery|
The latest series of work by UND faculty member and Grand Forks artist Patrick A. Luber will be on display at the Third Street Gallery, 28 S. Third St., Feb. 1-26. The public is invited to attend the artist reception Thursday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m.
"Objects of Intercession" is the current body of work by Luber. In this series he takes a close look at the relationship between art and devotion through the wall sculptures he creates. As an artist, Luber like to challenge preconceived notions about devotion. In his artist statement Luber states, “Works of art and devotional objects have much in common. Both are objects of intercession, mediating thoughts between Creator/creator and Creation/creation, communicating through visible means what language, whether written or spoken, cannot express.”
Raised on a farm near Pocahontas, Ill., Luber received a bachelor's degree from Greenville College in Greenville, Ill. He earned a master's and master of fine arts degree in sculpture from the University of New Mexico and has taught sculpture at UND since 1990. His work can be found in numerous private collections, including the North Dakota Museum of Art.
The public is welcome to all events. Those wishing group tours, including schools, should contact the Third Street Gallery at (701)775-5055. There is no admission charge but a $2 donation is suggested for adults and change from children.
