Linda Fleming: The Cloak of the Motion
On View: January 1–May 1, 2019
Linda Fleming will be the subject of a major solo exhibition at GOCA's Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art (September–December, 2018). Fleming is primarily a sculptor and works in steel, wood, rubber, felt, and paper, and is best known for her large-scale outdoor sculptures that draw from the desert and mountain environments surrounding her studios, and as a founding member of the artists' community Libre in Southern Colorado.
The Cloak of the Motion is a monumental, flame-cut sculpture by the artist and the first public work installed on the grounds of the Ent Center for the Arts with a provenance of past exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, N.Y, the New Mexico State Capital Grounds, Santa Fe, N.M., Laumeier Sculpture Park, Saint Louis, and Linda Durham Contemporary Art, Galisteo, New Mexico.
This work is on view outside the Ent Center for the Arts through May 2019.
AWOL: Art WithOut Limits launched in 2008, featuring international, national and regional artists and collectives manifesting site-specific temporary projects outside the confines of the gallery walls with accompanying artistic residencies. Past programs include social practice projects, public sculpture, multi-disciplinary performances, and happenings across a wide range of venues. Creating community through shared experiences with art is a guiding goal of this program.
