The String Room Art Gallery of Wells College is proud to announce an exhibition featuring award-winning artist Jozef Bajus. "Jozef Bajus: Recent Work" opens on November 3, 2017, and will remain open to the public until December 10. All are welcome to join the artist for a free reception on November 3, 2017 from 6 to 8 pm.
Jozef Bajus's work is characterized by exquisitely-rendered structural interventions in found and cast-off materials such as books, tar paper, personal correspondence, and remnants of manufactured leather and felt. The resulting works range in scale, from small folded-paper sculptures to a suspended installation spanning one end of the Gallery's main exhibition space. "Jozef Bajus: Recent Work" brings together selections from several bodies of work, all of which demonstrate the artist's ability to derive extraordinary formal invention from the characteristics of the materials with which he works. His practice is the result of both a dedication to precise procedure and the discovery inherent in working with materials that may have otherwise been discarded.
