The “Uberyummy” exhibition is guaranteed to excite all of your senses.
The artists’ pieces were created to make the viewer want to touch, smell, and maybe even taste them. Through the vibrant colors and different textures, viewers will feel an emotional connection to each piece.
You will find this exhibition at CSUSB’s Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art.
According to the representative for the museum, Andrea Callahan, the pieces were created to “entice the senses.”
The title, “Uberyummy”, accurately displays the emotions that the exhibition will display. All of your senses are aroused from the moment you walk into the museum, which is exactly what the artists were hoping to achieve.
Some of the artists that will be featured in the exhibition will be Tim Berg, Rebekah Myers, Kathy Butterly and Rebekah Bogard.
Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers often collaborate on their collections. Typically, their pieces are used with bright colors that attract the eyes of the viewers. Some of their most famous pieces are glossed over with a shiny coat that calls out for you to touch them.
Another artist who will be displayed is Kathy Butterly. Kathy is a famous porcelain artist that tends to portray feminine personalities through her art work.
The grand opening, which took place on Friday, featured ten different artists along with their installation pieces.
For the exhibition, each artist was given a designated space inside the museum to display their art. Each space created by the artists will evoke a different emotion from their viewers.
The artists created their collections wanting to take the viewers into a whole different emotional world through their pieces.
However, the pieces are not being displayed in your typical style.
At the “Uberyummy” exhibition you will see art in a new dimension, hanging from the ceiling or clinging to the walls. The artists were given free range when it came to displaying their collections.
The exhibition, which was created by professional artists, will display mainly contemporary ceramic pieces and other genres of art. The exhibit will be open to the public from Sept. 30th through Dec. 15th.
The museum is open Monday through Wednesday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.. While the general admission is free to the museum, it is asked that viewers make a donation to help support future exhibits.
This free exhibition being displayed in our very own museum at school should not be missed. It is a great opportunity to view creative installation pieces from artists who want to awaken your sleeping senses.
