June 3 – August 26, 2021
Moncrief Cancer Institute, in partnership with the Texas Christian University (TCU) School of Art, presents Peaks and Vales, a solo exhibition by Linnea Glatt, curated by Fernando Alvarez. Peaks and Vales is on view at Moncrief Cancer Institute from June 3 to August 26, 2021. Moncrief Cancer Institute is not open to the public for exhibition viewing due to COVID-19 restrictions; however, the exhibition is available for virtual viewing at https://linktr.ee/MoncriefArtGallery.
Peaks and Vales invites viewers to experience the meditative minimal compositions of Linnea Glatt. The fabric works on paper exhibited present formal gestures, like line and shape, in an implied state of progression, often expanding, retracting, repeating, or contrasting. These rhythmic progressions serve as analogies for the passing of time and seek to answer Glatt’s continued questions regarding the essence of life. As a cancer survivor, Glatt’s work is informed by the widening range of lived experiences. Her battle manifests “good” and “adverse” as opposing parts of the same whole.
Linnea Glatt is an interdisciplinary artist based in Dallas, Texas. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Moorhead State University in Moorhead, Minnesota and received her Master of Arts from the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. Predominantly working in fabric-based drawings and sculptures, Linnea has established herself as a staple of the Dallas art scene where she is currently represented by Barry Whistler Gallery. Her work is featured in many private and public collections, most notably the Dallas Museum of Art Collection and the UT Southwestern Medical Center Collection.
Fernando Alvarez is a Honduran interdisciplinary artist. He is currently a graduate candidate at Texas Christian University, where he is earning his Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from the University of North Texas.
Moncrief Cancer Institute provides Tarrant County and surrounding communities with the foremost science, resources, and programs to reduce the threat and impact of cancer. The partnership between Moncrief Cancer Institute and the TCU School of Art celebrates the vital relationship between art and medicine and how art positively impacts the patient experience. TCU graduate students are selected to participate as guest curators and then mentored through the exhibition-making process by staff of The Art Galleries at TCU.
