Three artists come together in this compelling exhibition. Megan Bell Honigman’s abstract oil paintings incorporate flowing organic shapes made of rich, soothing colors. Spencer Silver’s acrylic paintings are created by stacking multiple individual panels to create a complete single piece. And sculptor Rory King ties it all together with his bold, colorful fiber board sculptures that mimic solid metal, both in appearance and the way they take command of the space.
Events associated with Dynamic Convergence include an opening reception on Thursday, August 28, from 6 – 8 p.m. and an Artist Talk on Thursday, September 18, at 7 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
About Megan Bell: Megan Bell is a self-taught oil painter who finds endless inspiration for her work in the colors and forms found in nature. Appreciating the beauty of the smallest of organisms to the grandest of sea life, she often incorporates bits and pieces of this imagery into her abstract paintings. Raised in Bloomington, Minnesota, Megan currently resides in Minneapolis and spends her days making art alongside her two young children at her studio in the historic Northrup King Building.
About Rory King: Born in Langdon, North Dakota in 1948, Rory King moved to Minnesota in 1962 and graduated from Minneapolis Marshall high school in 1967. Primarily a self-taught artist, Rory developed a curiosity to learn and explore numerous artistic disciplines including drawing, painting, and innovations in screen printing. In 1969 Rory delved into filmmaking and expressionist animation in particular. Later Rory’s interest turned to architectural drafting, woodworking, and commercial furniture and lighting design. To date, 14 of his original designs have been licensed for manufacture. In the last ten years, Rory has expanded his interest to include the creation of award-winning abstract sculpture. Rory describes his sculpture as "a unified compilation of geometric elements that create a kind of architectural origami."
About Spencer Silver: Spencer Silver is an American chemist who, together with Arthur Fry, invented Post-it™ Notes in 1970. Silver was born in San Antonio, Texas. He obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Arizona State University and a doctorate in organic chemistry from the University of Colorado before taking a research position as a Senior Chemist in 3M's Central Research Labs. During his research career at 3M, Spencer was able to develop his longtime interest in painting and the studio arts through night classes at the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. These studies were extended through classes at the Split Rock Arts Program (U of M), the Grand Marais Art Colony, and studio classes with artist and teacher, Sally Brown. He presently has a studio at the Casket Arts Building in NE Minneapolis and works primarily in assembled mixed media paintings on canvas panels. Silver is the author on over 40 US patents and scientific publications and has received numerous awards both locally and nationally for his scientific contributions.
