For the past year artists Edgar Endress and John D. Morgan have established an open dialogue about art and art practices. Looking at their personal artistic process they found points of intersection and variance. The exhibition Excuse Me for My Razzmatazz is a visual response to this dialogue. Several questions about the art form, the surface, and the materials, have been raised; the idea of collecting, recycling, and repurposing objects as mimetic markers are central to both artists’ practice. In that context, Endress and Morgan created a constant dialogue with places where material culture is sorted and redistributed: thrift stores, flea markets, and antique stores are the focus of the dialogue. Excuse me for my Razzmatazz exposes a dialogue with the “found object”.
The opening reception will be First Friday, September 5th from 5:30 – 8:00 pm with the artists’ gallery talk beginning at 6:00 pm. The exhibition will be on view through Friday, October 17th. The Craddock-Terry Gallery is free and open to the public 12-5 pm Wednesday through Sunday.
