Art traditions to be honored at exhibit

By Special to the Monitor

The Art Center at Fuller Lodge invites the public to the opening reception for its newest exhibit, Traditional Fine Arts and Crafts, from 5-7 p.m. Friday.

A quick glance at a patchwork collection of Polaroid photos might inspire the question, What is traditional in fine art and crafts? Artist Ivan Faucon points out the religious theme as one of the traditional foundations in art. Yet, his work suggests another question: Is there now a tradition of the avant-garde and the radical in art? Faucons triptych, Homage to Lawrence Weiner: The Residue of a Flare Ignited Upon a Boundary, follows a style developed by David Hockney in which the photographer captures a scene while remaining stationary, moving only the cameras point of view. If teaching this technique has become almost de rigueur in high school photography classes, does this qualify the style itself as traditional?
