Turner Carroll Gallery is excited to announce an upcoming group exhibition,"Altered." It
will be open to the public with a reception on April 21st and will stay up through May
19th. This show will exhibit work by Rusty Scruby, Tracy Krumm, and Ann Weiner.
Rusty Scruby creates photographic reconstructions by cutting up photographs into
various shapes and weaving them together. This breakdown results in a pixilated image, altering our perception of the depicted environment. Scruby's training in engineering
becomes apparent through the mathematical precision and construction of his pieces. His
work calls on the viewer to use her vision in a more engaging way to reveal beautiful
glimpses of seemingly ordinary scenes.
In 2010, Rusty received a grant from the NEA to fund an installation called "Playing in
the Sand." His work is in well known collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts in
Houston, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont and the Microsoft
Corporation's collection in Redmond, Washington to name but a few.
Tracy Krumm alters notions of function and gender in her exploration of hand process
and elemental materials in her hanging sculptural pieces. Her work embraces skills and
objects typically thought of as “female” and “domestic” such as strainers, knitting, and
crocheting. Instead of using yarn, however, she knits and crochets with metal threads. The
combination of such ordinary hand skills with an industrial material like metal elevates the
craft to an impressive, noteworthy art.
Tracy has won numerous awards and honors over the last thirty years and decorates many public and private collections, most notably that of the Houston Museum of Fine
Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Art, and the Museum of
International Folk Art also in Santa Fe.
Ann Weiner started showing with the gallery in 2005. Although her creations are made of
a variety of materials, her work primarily consists of lenticular photographs alternating
images of children, butterflies, dandelions, and other things that permeate our lives. This
ongoing body of work, called “Transformations,” addresses how the tangible world
connects with the ephermal realm of memory. She is interested in exploring the function
of memory as it informs our notions of fate and consequence.
Ann Weiner lives and works in Conneticut and her work hangs in the collection of the
Midwest Museum of American Art in Elkhart, Indiana as well as in numerous private
