The University of Redlands Art Department is pleased to present the homecoming exhibition of Jim Callans & Justin Prough. 25 years later, the Outstanding Studio Art Majors of ’96 & ’95 return. In "Reverie", whimsical structures and surrealist imagery co-exist in the equilibrium between complex states. Despite a world in brittle suspension between freewill and free fall, we find latitude to create and permission to imagine. Join us in Peppers Art Gallery (across from Larsen Hall) on Wednesday, October 20 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. for the Opening Reception and Artist Talk!

A second Homecoming reception will be held on Saturday, October 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. About the Artists Jim Callans is a multidisciplinary artist residing in Venice Beach, CA. The inception point for his work comes from the dream state, a spot between the waking and sleeping worlds. A puzzling land of loosely connected artifacts, tied together by anxieties, wishes, and premonitions. Playful surrealism and mundane materials lend these pieces a primitive quality which belies their complex construction.

Justin Prough is a Los Angeles based artist whose work reflects the struggle between sunny days, good waves and the environmental & political unrest of our times. Telling visual stories through connecting ideas with materials and processes drives his practice. Prough’s work has been exhibited in California and in private collections across the U.S. “I fancy myself a scavenger,” explains Prough. “A scavenger of materials, moments and ideas, who looks to forge beauty and meaning from their juxtaposition. I hope these juxtapositions ignite puzzled smiles and conversation around social and ecological complacency and their ramifications.”

The University of Redlands is located halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs on Interstate 10. Exit at University Street when coming east from LA or on Cypress when coming from west from Palm Springs. The Gallery, located on Colton Avenue, is open from 1–5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 2–5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
