Artist offers illustrative online talk in lieu of in-person visit

An artist’s attention to anatomy, medical imaging and medical illustration is highlighted in Michael Reedy’s gallery talk, available on The Gallery at Penn College’s website. The Michigan artist and educator was unable to offer his talk in person, as part of his “Into the Void” gallery exhibit; however, he created a thoughtful and insightful online presentation.

“Into the Void,” an exploration of the human figure and life and death, can be viewed through Oct. 8 at The Gallery at Penn College.

“Reedy looks back at the development of his work, explains his sometimes misunderstood meanings, and explores his personal fears and pain,” said Penny Griffin Lutz, gallery director. “He also lets the viewer in on his sense of humor so we can further understand his work.”

Reedy’s works are emotionally complex and layered, showcasing the “tension between inside/outside, death and beauty, pain and indifference.” Although utilizing skeletal figures in his pieces, the artist says his subjects are “very much alive to me.”

His 17-minute talk offers insights into his artistic evolution and experimentation with materials, color and narratives.

Into the Void” can be viewed through Oct. 8 in the gallery, on the third floor of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Madigan Library.

The gallery is open 2 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Fridays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. (The gallery is closed on Saturdays.) Prior to visiting, guests should view the college’s Continuity of Operations page for current guidelines related to the pandemic.
