Yavapai College Art Professor Laura Bloomenstein is the featured artist for a solo exhibition titled “Infinite Holes” at the college’s art gallery on its Prescott campus at 1100 E. Sheldon St.
“Infinite Holes” is Bloomenstein’s exploration of three-dimensional printing that created images that she found interesting enough to craft into a new form of art. The gallery exhibitors describe her show as an “enriching expedition of digital images on the walls and porcelain tea bowls on pedestals.”
Bloomenstein’s artwork is inspired by organic objects, with it all related to structure and space.
“Infinite Holes” comes from the reality that “everything is holes,” whether it is a piece of mesh with millions of holes or a teapot with one hole.
A ceramic artist, Bloomenstein said she has enjoyed delving into flat art imagery. As part of her opening public reception on Friday, Nov. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m., Bloomenstein is also eager to engage visitors and guests into trying out her images as body art. The reception will feature an interactive tattoo laboratory where guests can apply their own choice of art as a temporary tattoo.
“These are my images I’ve made into personal details,” Bloomenstein said.“Everybody is wearing art these days … I thought it would be fun. Another way to get the work out there.”
Bloomenstein will be available to talk about her art and her newest discoveries that have influenced her most recent pieces. Artwork will also be on sale for those looking for holiday gifts. The exhibition will be on display at the gallery through Dec. 19.
“In the midst of your process, you don’t always know what the answers are going to be,” Bloomenstein said of her artistic journey.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and on Tuesday and Wednesday the gallery is open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays
