Virtual Opening: Matthew Cole, 2021 Rutsch Award Winner

Join us for a virtual opening reception for the solo exhibition of works by Matthew Cole, 2021 Alexander Rutsch Award Winner. This event includes a live gallery tour of the exhibition–including a selection of works by Alexander Rutsch–and an open Q&A with the artists and members of the Rutsch judging panel.


Cole employs traditional painting and preliminary printmaking methods to interpret memories of actual and subconscious events – amalgamations of real life and fantasy, often stemming from profound personal experiences. The processes of layering and distorting are instrumental in conveying emotion in his work. The artist uses composite imagery to represent the fragmented nature of memory, narrated through personal as well as familiar references from art history.


This event is free and open to the public. Learn more about the exhibition here
