Past: Southeast's Catapult Creative House Presents "Mental Landscapes" by Jennifer Torres
Catapult Creative House
"Mental Landscapes," an exhibition of sculptural works by University of Southern Mississippi Art and Design professor, Jennifer Torres, will be on view from Friday, Sept. 4 through Friday, Sept. 25 at Catapult Creative House. An opening reception for "Mental Landscapes" will take place on Sept. 4 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visitors are required to wear masks and follow floor guides for social distancing while in Catapult Creative House.
Jennifer Torres was born in Queens, NY and spent her childhood in Teaneck, NJ. She did her first four years of studio training as a teenager at the Art Students League in New York City and got her BFA at the Cooper Union, also in NYC. Her focus was steel fabrication, casting, woodworking and photography.
Her most recent body of work started as a response to the marginalization of certain populations and landscapes within the community. As it was/is continually fortified by current political leaders, she felt compelled to respond to, what she saw as, the dramatic effects on those around her and in her own life. Issues of equality, social and environmental justice, and how she fits into these themes are what drives her current work.
Attendees are welcome to tour the entire Catapult facilities including the Southeast Missouri State University Department of Art and Design students’ studios upstairs. Additionally, an exhibition of Matthew Breeden’s digital work will be featured in the second-floor student gallery. Visitors are also invited to browse the merchandise in the Shoppe, which features student work and local business products. All gallery exhibitions, events and talks are free and open to the public.
