Event Description Opening Reception Saturday, December 12th, 6-9pm Fringe Theories: Ideas that Depart Significantly from the Prevailing or Orthodox Views Tony Allard DJ Brelje Keith Engeron Noah Doley Mark Van Stone “A man must consider what a rich realm he abdicates when he becomes a conformist.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson In 1633 a weak, despondent, seventy-year old Galileo Galilei, was brought before the Roman-Catholic Inquisition to defend himself against charges of heresy. Facing the possible sentences of permanent imprisonment, torture, and death, Galileo was forced to kneel and abdicate his belief that the earth revolves around the sun. Those who enforce the status quo, enforce it hard. Forcing those of us who question these prevailing theories into a category of outsiders, extremists, conspiracy theorists. FRINGE THEORIES considers the work of artists and scholars that exist outside of the traditional and accepted rules. The work of these artists forces us to look forward and keep an open mind.

About Susan Hauptman Throughout her career, Susan Hauptman has worked only on paper and only in charcoal and pastel to portray her trademark self-portraits and still life drawings with a level of realism that is nearly trompe l’oeil, a form in which the artist renders an image so precisely that it “tricks the eye” of the viewer. Hauptman’s deftly executed, life-size charcoal self-portraits depict the artist with near-photographic exactitude, as each portrait stares directly and enigmatically at its viewers while symbolically surrounded by the landscapes of Hauptman’s real and imagined lives. Drawn with complete candor and sparing no wrinkle or blemish, the stark self-portraits toy with gender roles, presenting an androgynous-looking Hauptman and challenging notions of feminine beauty. These works, Hauptman’s most celebrated subject matter for the past twenty years, display not only her astonishing technical mastery, but also serve as the artist’s own means of self-revelation and invention. Hauptman earned her B.F.A from the University of Michigan and her M.F.A. from Wayne State University in Detroit. She has had solo shows at Forum Gallery, Los Angeles; Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, Ga.; Tatistcheff Gallery, New York; and Campbell-Thiebaud Gallery, San Francisco. Group exhibitions have included shows at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, Old Lyme, Conn.; Koplin Del Rio Gallery, Los Angeles; Seraphin Gallery, Philadelphia; Gescheidle Gallery, Chicago; and Laguna College of Art and Design, Laguna Beach, Calif. Hauptman’s work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock, Ark.; and Norton Gallery of Art, Palm Beach, Fla. She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, and held the Lamar-Dodd Professorial Chair at the University of Georgia from 1997 to 2000. Hauptman has also been a visiting artist at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.; University of California at Santa Barbara; San Francisco Art Institute; and Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Susan Hauptman’s exhibit is on view at Lux through January 9, 2010.
