The work of Ohio artist Landon Crowell is on display at the Volunteer State Community College Art Gallery. Crowell is the Sculpture and Gallery technician at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, where he also completed his B.F.A. in sculpture. Landon said he has spent more than 17 years traveling and living across the United States honing his technical skills and exploring the art making process. He adds that most of the materials for his latest project were scavenged from construction site dumpsters and demo projects from remodeling.
“The work in “Canyons of the Broken and Departed” is a culmination of ideas and material experimentation that I have been working on since 2010, with some elements reaching back as far as 1996,” Crowell said. “It is a map of sorts, of memories long since faded and barely recognizable. Through altered landscapes, realities, memories and materials.”
The Vol State show runs until March 28. The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Vol State Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Steinhauer-Rogan-Black (SRB) Humanities Building on the Gallatin campus at 1480 Nashville Pike.
