Margery Amdur, Abundance Exhibit Opens in CWU Sarah Spurgeon Gallery

Thursday, February 6th –  Margery Amdur: Abundance, Sarah Spurgeon Gallery, Randall Hall –
4:00 PM -  Artist lecture in Randall Hall, room 117
5:00 PM – Opening Reception  - Sarah Spurgeon Gallery
Margery will be conducting student workshops in the gallery all week.

Amdur’s exhibit includes large-scale wall and floor works comprised of foam rubber make-up sponges that are sensuously rubbed and saturated with pastel pigment. The sponges are then pieced together to create a surface texture resembling soft children’s building blocks. The accumulation of miniature absorbent shapes creates a larger sculptural mass, which is both colorfully abstract, and a comment on how we perceive beauty.

Margery Amdur’s studio practice is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is an Associate Professor of Art at Rutgers-Camden University in New Jersey. Originally from Pittsburgh, she received her undergraduate degree from Carnegie-Mellon University and her M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin in Madison
