Cathleen Faubert
Aromatic Landscapes: Unseen Terrain
 
Hartnett Gallery is pleased to present Cathleen Faubert’s Aromatic Landscapes: Unseen Terrain as the first exhibition of the 2017/18 calendar year. Featuring the rich aromas of different landscapes around the United States, the olfactory artworks center on the unique qualities of an ego-region by using handcrafted materials from, or inspired by, a specific location, thus capturing the “DNA” of that place. Changing scent strips and fragrant organic material affect the atmosphere within the gallery space, creating for visitors an experience of the passage of time as well as of particular places. Aromatic chemicals are used to reinforce and embellish subtle characteristics inherent in the existing odor profiles of each location. The unfolding narrative presents a personal, internalized journey through Faubert’s unique aromatic landscapes.

Cathleen Faubert, originally from Rhode Island, is currently an Assistant Professor of Art, Technology & Culture at the University of Oklahoma. She earned her MFA from Tufts University/School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Artistic endeavors are multi-disciplinary, including olfactory artworks. Faubert has exhibited nationally and internationally, and completed a number of artist-in-residence programs, which help to inform her work regarding place. In 2017 she has participated in programs at Vermont Studio Center and Studio Works at the Tides Institute and Museum of Art in Eastport, ME.

The opening reception will take place on Thursday, September 7th, 5pm – 7pm, with an artist’s talk scheduled at 4pm in the Stackel Room. The exhibition will remain on view through October 1st.
Gallery hours are: Tuesday – Friday, 12pm – 7pm; and Saturday – Sunday, 12pm – 5pm.
