Cune is the first international visiting artist-in-residence at PNC. She will be in the community for approximately one month. A resident of The Hague, Netherlands, her work has appeared in exhibits throughout the Netherlands and in Berlin, Paris, Mexico and New York City.
Her show, “Organic Variations” will be featured in the Odyssey Gallery on the second floor of the Library-Student-Faculty Building from Oct. 12 through March. The gallery is open Monday to Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This 85-piece show of two-dimensional works of art includes photography, graphics, paintings and some textiles. Cune’s art links fantasy with reality, color images with black and white, paint, photography and textiles to develop a variety of visuals.
She will also present the lecture, “How it is to be an Artist in The Hague,” on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Lubezenik Center for the Arts, 101 W 2nd St., Michigan City. In her talk, Cune will take her audience from the Lubeznik Center to the other side of the ocean to the coast of the Netherlands and to The Hague.
The audience will be introduced to artists who have had a connection with The Hague such as VanGogh, Monet, Mesdag, Mondrian and some of their work will be shown. She will also note some of today’s young artists and the route they have taken to success.
The audience will get a feel for the local culture by taking a “walk” to different locations in the city. She will take a look at the cultural climate in The Hague, exhibits in the public domain, art education, the government sponsorship of the arts and museums in The Hague.
