The Bemis Center is presenting an exhibition of recent works by Kansas City-based artist Garry Noland. Noland received one of three juror’s awards at last year’s Regional Juried Exhibition. For this major solo show, Noland is showing large-scale works produced solely of duct tape — tapestry-like forms that combine the desaturated hues of the colored tape with adhered detritus from his studio floor. Matt Jacobs, a participant in the 2012 Bemis Center Regional Juried Exhibition, is presenting a solo exhibition of new sculptures, installations and paintings. Jacobs brings together commonplace materials — inflatable toys, cinder blocks, Tic Tacs — to create unexpected works that bridge intuitive play with found materials with formal concerns of painting and sculpture. The Unorganized Territory and I’m Not Saying, I’m Just Saying are curated by Hesse McGraw. Each artist will present a gallery talk at 12 noon, Saturday, February 23.
