April 21 - August 12, 2018 Visual Arts Center | Corner Gallery Detailed trompe l’oeil paintings and stop motion video of handmade doilies from Lindsay Arnold’s "Tedium" series explore myths of perfection and domesticity. In her paintings, Arnold reproduces every snag, tear, stain and thread of the doilies she sources from garage sales, neighbors and her own family. "Tedium" honors the difficult experiences which leave us worn, and acknowledges thankless repetitive labor. "Table Dance," a stop-motion video, is a celebration of the handwork produced by women during the mid- to late-20th century. Over 160 doilies take to the dance floor, throwing off their matronly reputations to prove age is no barrier to having a good time. Lindsay Arnold is an American-Canadian born in Rugby, ND and raised in North Portal, Saskatchewan. A self-taught artist, Arnold’s work has been exhibited at venues in Ottawa, Chicago, and Novi Sad, Serbia. She still lives in North Portal, population 123, with her husband and daughter.
