On Entropy: Selections from The Maslow Collection on Creation and Loss
An exhibit, On Entropy: Selections from The Maslow Collection on Creation and Loss, is on display at The Maslow Study Gallery for Contemporary Art, located in the Shields Center for Visual Arts on Marywood University’s campus, from now through December 13, 2022.
This exhibition, spanning from autumn to winter, examines eleven works from The Maslow Collection through the concept of entropy. Entropy refers to the measure of the change of energy within a system, typically moving from order to disorder. Within an art context, the term has been applied more loosely, referring to various types of states of change, which have included deterioration and decay. The artworks in this exhibition point to these ideas, both overtly and subtly, and many also suggest that cycles and states of return are inevitably linked to the notion of entropy.
Featured artists include: Robert Barry, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Robert Cumming, Ant Farm, Ellsworth Kelly, Denny Moers, Robert Motherwell, Ellen Phelan, Robert Rauschenberg, Susan Rothenberg, and Robert Smithson.
Gallery hours for The Maslow Study Gallery are Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday, 1-4 p.m. For additional information about Marywood art exhibits, please visit marywood.edu/galleries or call (570) 348-6278.
