McDaniel College Department of Art and Art History presents an exhibit, Grey Vibrations: Sculpture by Chris LaVoie, Jan. 27 through Feb. 20 on campus in the Esther Prangley Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall.

For information and gallery hours, call 410-857-2595. The exhibit is free and open to the public. An opening reception will be held 7-9 p.m. Jan. 27.

A sculptor and multimedia artist, LaVoie’s work focuses on themes of domesticity, stasis and movement as he deconstructs and reconstructs familiar middle-class objects. With society’s conflicting desires to rest at home and to be in constant movement toward something new, LaVoie’s work endeavors to fill the space between home and the road.

“My art is spinning a material history that may connect past and present forms, but only for a moment,” LaVoie says. “It is a re-fabrication of the prefabricated, over and over again.”

LaVoie, who lives in Baltimore, has exhibited his work nationally, in galleries along the East Coast from North Carolina to New York to points west, including Arizona. He is preparing for solo exhibitions this year at McDaniel as well as at the Arlington Art Center in Virginia.

Last year, LaVoie earned a Master’s of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in downtown Baltimore, and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture in 2004 from the University of Arizona. Since receiving his master’s degree, he has worked as a sculpture technician and adjunct faculty member at the Maryland Institute College of Art, as well as a substitute teacher for Baltimore County Public Schools.
