Display offers insight into artist’s creative process

The three-dimensional kinetic sculptures created by Darrell Tousley, a Mesa State College assistant professor of art, offer a bit of insight into how the artist’s mind works and how it solves problems.

An opening reception of “Second Wind, Moving Messages” is an opportunity for the public to explore sculptures that reflect Tousley’s internal mental processes. A reception and exhibit viewing is from 7–9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, at the Johnson Art Gallery in the Mesa State College Center.

Although Tousley’s early works were ceramic, he quickly discovered a passion for sculpture, especially kinetic sculpture, in which he often incorporates ordinary household objects. Tousley has been assistant professor of art at Mesa State since 2008.

The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 10. The Johnson Art Gallery’s hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
