Frank Travers, What Remains
July 17 – August 18
Reception: Thursday, July 20, 6-8pm
Printmaker Frank Travers, who also lives and works in Dayton, will exhibit a series of works titled What Remains. Of his work, Travers says, “I’m very interested in the details and the things that get a little gross; puss, guts, worms that live in guts and other parasitic activity. I think we all know fragility of the body and become more aware of it the older we get. I want to show through my pictures a stagnant decay that is also a sort of narrative perspective that is metaphysical but also recognizable.”
Travers has exhibited widely both locally and nationally. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2010 from the University of Connecticut and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2008 from Wright State University. Travers currently serves as Adjunct Professor of Printmaking at Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton as well as Adjunct Professor of Humanities at Edison Community College in Piqua and volunteers at Blue House Gallery and Studios in Dayton.
