Default Art show in Texas -

full article about other art pieces:
link at: http://borderartdialogue.wordpress.c...-ruben-center/

relevant section:

Hillary Wilder’s site installation piece “A Castle Dark, Sunset” might be construed as narrative as background. This is a dark brooding piece, the sky taking up the majority of the painting. Outside of the canvas along the walls of the gallery is design and several long stripes. The painting references Cathy Smith, who had been the inspiration for Gordon Lightfoot’s song Sundown, and who had been alone in the room at Chateau Marmont with John Belushi when he died. None of this is readily apparent-the references include the fact that the stripes were from Lightfoot’s touring bus, as well as some design taken from Smith’s wallpaper, and the castle references Chateau Marmont, but one has to read the labels to know any of this so this is narrative running underneath the surface rather than out front as is customary.

How can we see that particular piece? Are the exhibits online any place? If not, we need to send one of our Texan Lightheads in there to take some photos! :D

When the reviewer states "none of this is readily apparent", he wasn't kidding.

You might note that the title of the piece refers to another song ...

And yes, Ron, my reaction was very much like yours!
