Art Exhibition - COLLECTOR by Matthew Craven

The directors of the Wiley and May Louise Jones Gallery are proud to present COLLECTOR—A body of work from Los Angeles based artist Matthew Craven. His work utilizes found imagery collage, sourced from texts rich with historic iconography, which he arranges into compelling contemporary images.

Craven’s process driven work employs a unique balance of combined patterns, textures, and figures. The fusion of new and old allows the viewer to interpret the struggles of past cultures and can serve as a reminder of contemporary aberrations. While other pictures offer quiet, meditative retreat through repetition and precise use of color. This combination of inquiry, creates a challenging, yet rewarding experience.

The Wylie and May Louise Jones Gallery is located at Bakersfield College, 1801 Panorama Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93305. The gallery is situated in the Grace Van Dyke Bird Library on the college’s main campus.

The exhibition will be on view from October 18 through November 29, 2018, with an opening Artist's reception on Thursday, October 25, from 4-7 p.m.
