Mick Reasor Exhibition: Tin Can Life

New paintings by Mick Reasor are on display in Davies Hall at Itasca Community College. The exhibition, Tin Can Life, is the culmination of Reasor's recent sabbatical project. The monochromatic gouache paintings were inspired by the recollections of a life on the road during the 1950s and 60s. His military family, with five children and a neurotic dachshund, hauled a sixteen-foot canned ham trailer that served as temporary quarters during their frequent transfers. The paintings were an effort to make often vague and dubious memories of a distant time and place a visual reality. As the titles for the paintings grew long and unwieldy, they became the text of a book by the same name.

The exhibit is open to the public and will be on view through the end of October.

Reasor has been an art faculty member at ICC since 1987.
