Central Connecticut State University Art Gallery exhibits Blazing on the Pinnacles and Minarets and Blazing Rocks

Quoting Edward Abbey’s seminal environmentalist work, “Desert Solitaire," describing the writer’s first sunrise as resident Arches National Park ranger, the show’s title aims to ascribe the sublime beauty and terror inherent in nature to cultural work on the environment. In various materials and design strategies, these works reflect anthropological, postindustrial, and aesthetic perspectives industrial, on the environment, thus negotiating how contemporary artists navigate work on nature.

Located in the S.T. Chen Fine Arts Center of Maloney Hall, the CCSU Art Gallery has long shown the work of CCSU faculty, students, and alumni, as well as contemporary artists from around the world. All gallery events are free and open to the public, with free parking available in Welte Garage attached to the building.
