Wild-Life, an exhibit by Tad Gloeckler, UGA associate professor of art, is on display in Circle Gallery (G14 Caldwell Hall) through May 30. In conjunction with the exhibit, a reception will be held in the gallery April 26 from 4-6 p.m.
The show is an expression of the Gloeckler’s deep respect for nature and a dedicated struggle to communicate relationships between natural systems and contemporary life. His goal is to encourage viewers to re-examine their surroundings, develop interest in other earth life forms and processes and reflect upon their own personal values.
The exhibit showcases products for luring fish and eradicating insects. Each object represents an inventive solution to an ordinary design problem. Each is a hybrid of nature and technology, built with a goal of beautiful assemblage.
