Tandem Press is hosting “Dream House,” a master of fine arts thesis exhibition by UW–Madison student Katelyn St. John, who is a Tandem Press project assistant. St. John’s work depicts her exploration of abandoned architecture. This exhibition features prints that delve into the visual representation of the space between experience and memory.
The exhibition runs through April 15 at the Tandem Press Apex Gallery, 1743 Commercial Ave., in Madison. The Apex Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be an exhibition reception on Friday, April 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. This reception coincides with a performance in the Tandem Press Friday Jazz Series from 5 to 7 p.m. Visit tandempress.wisc.edu/events/jazz-series for more information.
St. John is a multimedia artist who works in printmaking, photography, and sculptural installation. She photographs abandoned architecture and transforms them into prints and sculptures that convey her experience exploring the space.
St. John received her bachelor of fine arts in printmaking and art history from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2015, she researched green printmaking materials at Zeamays Printmaking, and in 2019 she was among the first recipients of the Tandem Press Gabriele S. Haberland Travel Award.
A statement about the exhibition from St. John explains: “Dreams are composed of experiences and memories, strung together to create a familiar but often flawed line of events. They come in vignettes of darkened or obscured images, of atmosphere and introspection, in color and black and white.
