All the Places We’ve Been: Art Collaborations of Jesse La Tour and Chuck Oldfield
You are cordially invited to the next art exhibit at Hibbleton Gallery, entitled “All the Places We’ve Been: Art Collaborations of Jesse La Tour and Chuck Oldfield. La Tour and Oldfield are co-owners and curators of Hibbleton Gallery. For this show, these two artists will be exhibiting collaborative pieces of their own creation, featuring the photography of Oldfield and the drawing/painting of La Tour! The opening reception is Friday, December 4th, 2015 from 6-11pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk.
The title of this show reflects different ideas about travel: both externally (visiting real geographical places) and internally (exploring new worlds through reading, studying, and watching films). Each piece will be a collaborative meditation on these two ideas of travel. Oldfield’s photographs, taken on his various travels to physical places will be juxtaposed by the drawings and paintings of La Tour, which reflect the mental and emotional landscapes of reading, thinking, and watching foreign films. The show is meant to be an exploration of how art can be a means to express the outer and inner journeys we all take, as we each try to create a mental map of all the places we’ve been.
In addition to co-owning Hibbleton Gallery, Chuck Oldfield is a filmmaker, photographer, and storyteller. Jesse La Tour is an English teacher, doodler, and lover of libraries.
