Rough Around the Edges: Painting and Sculpture by Cliff Tresner
on view at the Monroe Regional Airport through October 6, 2019
Reception with Artist's talk: Thursday, May 9, 5-7pm

Origin Bank, Member FDIC, the Monroe Regional Airport, and the Masur Museum of Art are proud to announce a new exhibition of work by Cliff Tresner. Tresner is a local artist and professor of Studio Art at the University of Louisiana, Monroe. He received the Louisiana Arts Fellowship in 2003, the second-place award in the 7th Annual Florida Outdoor Competition (Lakeland, FL) was Northeast Louisiana’s “Artist of the Year” in 2008, and recently won the Purchase Prize for large-scale public art at Delta State University (Cleveland, MS). Tresner’s work can be found in several collections, and can be seen on the grounds of the Masur Museum of Art.

Rough Around the Edges features a series of boldly colorful, abstract paintings alongside large sculptures made from wood and steel. Geometric shapes are paired with organic forms and spirals, and a play between rough and smooth textures make this exhibition interesting and dynamic. Come and see all that is happening at the Monroe Regional Airport!
