Gallery 31 — Michael Robear: Boundaries

December 5, 2012 to December 21, 2012
Michael Robear, Consuming Fire, watercolor on paper, 40 in. x 26 in.

This exhibition presents a selection of work from the last ten years by Corcoran alumnus Michael Robear (BFA, 1984). Imagery from Robear’s meticulously crafted watercolors often flow beyond designated borders into his handmade metal frames. In his most recent works, the traditional dynamic frame between frame and painting is reversed, with the sculptural frames dictating the content of the paintings. Students in the Corcoran’s MA program in Exhibition Design program create an appropriately boundary-breaking installation for Robear’s work.

Reception: Thursday, December 13, 5-7 p.m.
