DANNON ART project: A Living Studio

January 26, 2012

DANNON ART project
_________________________________________

Lawrence Arts Center
940 New Hamshire
Lawrence, KS

Exhibition dates: January 23 – March 3, 2012

Opening Reception: Friday, January 27, 2012, 5-9 pm
Closing Reception: Friday, February 24, 2012, 5-9 pm

Rex Hausmann will be creating a painting on the second floor at the Lawrence Arts
Center January 23 – 27. At the completion of his painting, this temporary studio
will handed over to a series of artists who will create new works, each leaving their
works on display.  Over the course of five weeks this space transforms into a
melody of styles and mediums creating an exhibit that will only exist this one time.

Audiences are encouraged to visit the space beginning January 23 – March 3.

This project will be held in the North end, on the second floor of the Lawrence Arts
Center.

Rex Hausemann lives and works as a full-time artist in San Antonio and New York
City. Hausmann earned a BFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and
Design. He has worked on projects both nationally and internationally and has
shown and lectured globally. His work and large projects often revolve around
identities found in communal and domestic contexts, tracing their connections
to religion and history.

Artist Note:
Dannon Art Supply/ Consulting/ Production/ Promotion/ Encouragement/
… heck,the story of a creative life in mid America! (With a Whole Lot of Friends)
COMMUNITY!

An installation/exhibition by a Creative Community, in motion.

The idea behind this project is simple: exposing an artistic community to an
audience for the audience to enjoy & participate. Much like Sol Lewitt had his
wall drawings, people instead of lines create a mesh of relationships,
metaphysically through e mails, phone calls. Eventually personal contact& a
physical object creates a totem of the persons visit. The process is open to
enterprising, yet simple boundaries exists: keep your voice within the specified
space of The Lawrence Arts Center. The small space will begin to look like a small
store, full of a verity of things for sale, with the space taking on the life of a studio
too. The space itself & individual voices will direct the exhibition itself. The
experience’s existence will changing every day. This a metaphor for the art of
creative community, the people we surround ourselves with, the people we as
human interact with on a daily basis & the trials & joys that come along with those
relationships.
