An exhibition of the works of Florida artist Judy Rushin will be on view Tuesday through Nov. 25 in the University Gallery, Porter Hall, Pittsburg State University.

Titled “The Weight of Instability,” the show will feature Rushin’s “Concealment Drawings.”

According to the artist, these drawings “examine the spaces defined by two-dimensional works. I bring attention to hidden, small, in-between places.”

“In these works, Rushin develops delicate surfaces with ink and mixed media, which then become subtle reminders to viewers to notice spaces that they typically ignore,” said S. Portico Bowman, gallery director.

The artist works in a wide range of media, but sees herself primarily as a painter. Bowman said that Rushin has become known for exploring the architecture of childhood, such as the forts, clubhouses and improvised structures that everyone is familiar with. Her more recent pieces explore the larger world of ephemeral architecture.

Rushin is an assistant art professor at Florida State University, Tallahassee. She has been featured in “New American Paintings,” and received the Winifred  G. Chandler Graduate Award of Excellence in Art in 2004.

In 2009 she was a fellow at the Hambidge Center for the Arts in Rabun Gap, Ga.

The University Gallery is open free to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Anyone needing information may call the art department at 235-4302 or Bowman at 235-4305.
