We are excited to announce our next exhibition: “Subtropical Wrecks” by Kathryn Baczeski beginning Monday, October 10, 2022 and on view through Friday, November 11, 2022.

The exhibition reception will be held half way through the exhibition on Thursday, October 27, 2022 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Just before the exhibition reception on Thursday, October 27, Kathryn Baczeski will give an artist talk at 5 p.m. in UNCW’s Cultural Arts Building, room 2033.

Subtropical Wrecks explores the landscape of Wilmington, North Carolina where the rural meets the coastline. Thinking about waterways, beaches, sea shores, and canals; this exhibition highlights the colliding of water and land, creating erosion and a subtropical climate that allows strange and unusual life to thrive, decompose and transform yet again. Materials are sourced from local areas and arranged for an interactive experience in the gallery space. Here, the viewer is invited to think about the rural landscape in an art context and art in a rural context and to leave their impressions.

Kathryn Baczeski is a clay-based artist and a professor of ceramics at Southeastern Louisiana University, in Hammond, Louisiana, where she teaches introductory to intermediate and advanced level courses. She earned her BFA in Sculpture at the University of Connecticut in 2009 and her MFA in Ceramics from Indiana University Bloomington in 2016.

Her residencies and exhibitions include Guldagergaard in Denmark, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, and the Iowa Ceramics & Glass Studio in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“VDOT’s compost bins had attracted another creative - author Erika Howsare. She shared with me that deer and humans exist in the same zone, both live on the edge of the forest. It is this close proximity that leads to high numbers of abrasive encounters between human and deer. Our collaborative text installation Mixing. Dissolving. indicates a division in the gallery, however it does not block passage between sides. The front of the gallery is spacious, bright and contains palatable illustrations of compost. The front is human territory. As you pass the partition, you cross into deer territory. Illustrated depictions are replaced with compost sourced from VDOT and trail cam footage of the compost process. The lights are low and the smell of compost is earthy. With text, Erika addresses and poses questions to traveling animal and human audiences.” - Madison Creech

“Another historical textile referenced throughout the exhibition is toile de jouy. You may recognize this print as a monochromatic French-styled pattern that displays illustrated scenes of flora and fauna, great scientific discovery, vast landscapes seemingly untouched by colonialism, and hunting conquests. Within itself, animal mortality compost contains all of these themes. Starting out as fauna exploring their native landscapes and becoming inadvertently “hunted” though a vehicle encounter. The physicality of the deer’s body finds its final resting place as compost spread along eroding roadways; creating and maintaining landscapes. The nutrient rich compost propels the growth of new flora attracting the eye of deer – and the cycle continues.” - Madison Creech

Madison Creech, “To Dust You Shall Return”

Wood, stain glass, LED light, animal carcass compost from Virginia Department of Transportation Timberlake Headquarters

“The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) removes an estimated 55,000 deer carcasses from its roadways each year at a cost of more than $4 million per year. Many VDOT maintenance facilities have a need for viable, environmentally compliant, and cost-effective carcass management strategies. Disposal challenges include a decreasing availability of conventional disposal methods, such as landfills, and a lack of viable burial areas” (Donaldson, and White 1). Forced air roadkill composting was researched and implemented at a few VDOT maintenance facilities. The solution was piloted by a small woman-led team made up of one researcher Bridget M. Donaldson, one research coordinator Jimmy White, and a handful of VDOT workers. This process is common for composting livestock mortality, but is slow to be incorporated by government entities for roadkill in the States. Here But Not Here is my response to visiting the VDOT compost sites. - Madison Creech

“The compost smelled like dirt. I leaned over the compost bin door, questioning the material. It was no longer animal, but was definitely not not animal. To Dust You Shall Return is a miniature recreation of the compost bins in Lynchburg, VA. The bins are divided into three sections - animal carcasses, partially composted carcasses, and completed compost. The ritual of stirring compost to incorporate air, wood chips, and leachate produces a significant amount of heat and steam that rises from the pile. Could this steam be the last exhale of a deer’s spirit leaving the physical world before the body transitions to dirt? To Dust You Shall Return acts as an alter and a gravesite holding composted remains of animals. Veiled with checkered stained glass, the light from within the alter passes through a thin barrier of color, subtly transforming its form, and mimicking the final breath of steam.”

Join us tonight for the opening reception of “There But Not There” by Madison Creech, beginning at 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.

"There But Not There" traces abrasive interactions between animal and human. The work was created in response to a few visits to the Virginia Department of Transportation's animal carcass composting sites. Decadent and whimsical textiles conceal a decaying subject matter.

Madison Creech is a UNCW Lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History teaching Graphic Design and Art Foundation courses. She also is co-founder of the Fried Fruit Gallery, located in Wilmington’s Cargo District.

This exhibition will be on view through Friday, September 30, 2022.
