The Light Fantastic

January 29, 2022 May 30, 2022

Light is essential to art, even in its absence. The scientific, mysterious, and material qualities of it have inspired artists for centuries. Light shapes how artists and viewers alike understand color, form, and composition.

In The Light Fantastic, the works of 27 artists from the nineteenth century to today are displayed alongside one another as a meditation on light, featured in painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography. Look closely at photographs by Carrie Mae Weems and Gregory Crewdson alongside abstract, poetic interpretations of light by Jen Stark, Dale Chihuly, and Agnes Pelton. Discover how local community members use light in their own work, and consider how the lighting of the gallery affects perceptions of the exhibition. 

In this free, focus exhibition at Crystal Bridges, enjoy the power of art and get ready to trip The Light Fantastic.
