“Lobotomy” and “Preserving History” On Display
Lino and Jamie Azevedo
(MINOT, ND) The Taube Museum of Art is delighted to have Lino and Jamie Azevedo share their work on our walls this month. Lino Azevedo grew up in San Francisco and is currently pursuing a lifelong love for art and helping others do the same. Lino is a former professor at Williston State College and currently working at the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design. His work has been featured across the United States. His wife Jamie grew up in North Carolina and has always had a deep love for storytelling. She uses this passion to create a narrative in her artwork. Their work has been featured in galleries across America.
Lino’s show entitled “Lobotomy” is featured in our main gallery. Lino’s work is an effort to illuminate society and its cravings for digital vices. His message “Turn off the television. Put the smart phone down. Engage. Think. And, by all means, revisit real conversation with fellow citizens. Connect.” Lino’s work combines realistic, grotesque, zombie like humans and current logos everyone is familiar with and creates a haunting narrative. This show is a perfect way to get a conversation going or at least in the Halloween spirit.
Jamie’s show entitled “Preserving History” is featured in our lower gallery. This exhibit focuses on women in history. Through collage Jamie’s work helps to narrate a story of women who you may or may not have heard of. This series is an excavation of their lives, achievements, and yes, even atrocities. This exhibit will leave you wanting to discover more about the women in these works, and a desire to unearth the untold stories of the countless other neglected figures of the past.
Exhibits will be up from October 18 – November 15th stop in during our regular business hours and check them out.
Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the
Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
The exhibition is made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts and the North Dakota Art Gallery Association.
