Aug. 18: Conditionals exhibit showcases sculptures by Pittsburgh artist

Monday, August 18, 2014

FREDERICK, Md.—A series of sculptures constructed from ordinary materials will be on display Aug. 28 through Sept. 27 in the Hodson Gallery in Tatem Art Center at Hood College.

An artist's reception will take place Aug. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

In an exhibit entitled Conditionals, Pittsburgh artist Meghan Olson uses colored light to transform seemingly ordinary materials—cardboard, 2x4s, wire and fabric—into something that is different from its intended purpose. Each construction is arranged to harmonize with the venue in which it is displayed.

Olson is editor-in-chief for Pittsburgh Articulate, an online art journal, and teaches at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. She earned her bachelor's degree in history from Portland State University and her master of fine arts degree from West Virginia University. Her work has been published in New American Printings and exhibited nationally.
