Join us as we celebrate the first major U.S. museum exhibitions of the work of New York-based sculptor Matthew Ronay and British artist Hilary Lloyd, a 2011 Turner Prize finalist.

Although Ronay has a form of color blindness, his exquisitely handcrafted sculptures, installations and reliefs combine vivid hues from across the spectrum that seem to vibrate and hum.

Swerving between abstract imagery and glimpses of the world, Lloyd’s exhibition explores light as both a medium and subject of digital technologies and draws attention to both the possibilities and limits of visual perception. The works on view were created specifically to be experienced in Blaffer Art Museum’s upstairs galleries.

The exhibitions open with a reception from 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 3 (members see it first, from 6-7 p.m.join today!) at Blaffer Art Museum.
