Louisville-based multidisciplinary artist and writer Megan Bickel has, in her own words, recently been spending much of her time “meditating on two words as they relate to one another in their contemporary context: allusion and illusion.”
See her explore that relationship at Bunk Spot’s first art opening of the year. Titled of an event, assigned a date that is too early, Bickel says in her artist’s statement that this particular body of work “utilizes haptic curiosity” as a way to encourage “visual, ethical or empathic critique of contemporary media images.”
An Art Academy of Cincinnati alum who is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Louisville, Bickel’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions regionally and nationwide.
Opening reception 7-11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25. Free. Bunk Spot Gallery, 544 E. 12th St., Over-the-Rhine, facebook.com/bunknews.
