KiMo Gallery to Feature “Notions of Time” Art Exhibition
December 5th Opening Features Works of Eason Eige and Marion Duignan
ALBUQUERQUE, NM—“Notions of Time” visits the artists’ observations of his or her surroundings throughout a year, an hour—any measure of time. An exhibition featuring the works of local artists Eason Eige and Marion Duignan will open on Thursday, December 5th with a free public reception for the artists from 6 – 8 p.m. The exhibition will be open through January 26, 2014.
Born and raised in Iowa, Eson Eige’s art education consisted of studies at the Kansas City Art Institute, Parsons and Winterthur. For 21 years he was chief curator of the prestigious Huntington Museum of Art in West Virginia. The painter is an avid collector and writer with a passion for cactus, Navajo and Pueblo jewelry, tribal art, and glass. He will be working from a series of African figures from his collection.
Marion Duignan was born in Los Angeles and has worked there as well as in San Francisco and New York City. International work has taken her to Dublin, Ireland, London, England, Barcelona and Madrid, Spain. She earned her Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology and Media from Columbia University in New York.
Long her artistic passion, Cityscapes and the vignettes of city people’s lives are captured in her series of webcam views captured over three years in the city of Dublin, Ireland—a different take on the accepted notions of time, place and traditional cityscapes.
