Whimsical prints at the ASU Night Gallery

See the woodcut The fire, frozen, inside your limbs, akimbo, by artist Nicholas Dowgwillo at the ASU Night Gallery Dec. 2-31.

October 31, 2011

Printmaker Nicholas Dowgwillo has exhibited his works nationally and internationally and is currently an MFA candidate at the ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. He received his BFA from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Like the country song by the same name, this art exhibition, I Fall to Pieces, explores the breakdown of relationships. But in the case of the exhibition, the relationships are those between people and plants. In Nicholas Dowgwillo’s collection of prints and mixed-media works on paper, trees are pulled up by the roots and torn apart in the air, turning from emotionally contorted bodies into clouds of psychedelic confetti.

The Night Gallery is located at the Tempe Marketplace, 2000 E. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe, AZ. The gallery is on the west end and south side of “The District” between Barnes & Noble bookstore and Aeropostale.

Exhibition: Dec. 2 – 31, 2011 
Meet the Artist: Friday, Dec. 2, 6–9 p.m. 
Night Gallery hours: 6–9 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday

This exhibit is free and open to the public.
