A collaboration exhibit by Courtney DiMare & Brianna Shimer
September 3 - December 4, 2021
Opening Reception: September 17
Flourish presents ceramics and metal work that shows the results of prolific and practiced making. It questions traditional processes and material function within contemporary craft. Two University of North Texas, Master of Fine Art candidates, Courtney DiMare and Brianna Shimer will present their individual research along with collaborative installations. Flourish highlights the journey of growth through the artistic process. DiMare and Shimer’s work dialogs by asking the viewer: how does material transform? And what does that transformation say about the evolution of process and product? Both artists are crafting a user-art relationship experience. Their work is interested in the ceremony of interacting with objects. Flourish is a bold extravagant gesture that celebrates emerging artists.
