The The The The Hush opens in Hodson Gallery

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.—An exhibition of works that are intended to illustrate the feelings of fear and anticipation in the global post-9/11 recession- and climate change-influenced culture will be on display October 3 through Nov. 23 in the Hodson Gallery at Hood College.

The The The The Hush, curated by Adam Farcus, gallery director, features works by artists Bill Conger, Terence Hannum and Laura Judkis.

A reception is scheduled for October 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery, which is located in the Tatem Arts Center. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The emotionally charged works range from Judkis' gloomy, wall-related sculptures created from found, distressed and combined materials; to the ominous sound installation and artist-books created by Hannum; to Conger's minimal ready-made sculptures and uncanny torn-magazine-based collages.

Conger lives and works in Peoria, Ill., and has exhibited his work internationally at galleries and institutions including The Engine Room, Wellington, New Zealand; Illinois State Museum, Chicago; and Helmuth Gallery, San Diego. Terence Hannum and Laura Judkis reside in Baltimore. Hannum has shown his work at Western Exhibitions, Chicago; Apex Art, New York; and Schalter, Berlin, among many others. Judkis has exhibited at Sophiajacob and Maryland Art Place, both in Baltimore, and her work was featured in the June/July 2012 issue of New American Paintings.
