Artists Using Recycled Material to Open in Murfreesboro Rotunda June 7
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A new art show featuring the work of Kristina Lyle and Miranda Herrick will be opening in the Murfreesboro City Hall Rotunda on June 7th and running through July 8th. The exhibit is titled “Constructed/Reconstructed,” as both artists use repurposed materials and grid patterns to create brightly colored organic geometric designs. Lyle uses recycled paper and Herrick uses re-purposed aluminum cans.
Kristina Lyle’s artwork has been shown at such places as the Tennessee Art League. She uses colored paper in various ways to create designs influenced by her grandmother’s quilts and her own travels. She will share the limelight with Miranda Herrick, whose style also employs vivid color and organic shapes. Herrick has had extensive showings in Nashville and Clarksville.
Both women are graduates of Austin Peay State University, with a bachelor degree in fine arts. Herrick’s degree is in drawing and ceramics, while Lyle’s is in painting and printmaking.
The artists will be hosting a reception during the two-day Boro Art Crawl on June 9th and 10th. They will be available to discuss their artwork. The two-night reception is in honor of the Tennessee Arts Commission’s annual conference taking place in Murfreesboro the week of the opening. The artists will be joined by the live poetry reading group, the Dilineators, who will entertain during the reception.
