Accordion Books on Display at Quigley Gallery
Implications, a series of accordion books that expand to create a panoramic image of icebergs in Iceland will, be on display in the Quigley Gallery on the Clarke University campus from Tuesday, Sept. 9, through Saturday, Oct. 4. The display is created by Nicole Pietrantoni. The text simultaneously reads as both a poem written by Devon Wootten and an official report on climate change. Admission is free. The Quigley Gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Pietrantoni’s artwork explores the complex relationship between human beings and nature. Employing both traditional and non-traditional methods of printmaking, she creates installations, works on paper, and public art. As a Leifur Eiríksson Foundation Scholarship recipient and Fulbright Fellow to Iceland in 2010-11 she was a visiting artist at the Icelandic Printmakers’ Association where she taught printmaking classes and created a new body of work in Reykjavik. Her work is in numerous collections and has been in exhibitions nationally and internationally. She is currently vice president of Outreach for the Southern Graphics Council International.
