"We thought that an exhibit featuring recent works by those same artists would be a wonderful retrospective for the museum's new special exhibit gallery," says museum director Aldona Jonaitis. "Just as there was ten years ago, there's an incredible diversity of styles, subject matters and media in this exhibit. I'm thrilled that Mary was able to be a part of it."
Museum of the North has an online catalog with an image of the work, JANUS, and Henrikson's artist's statement concerning the Zoroastrian icon appropriated and redefined by Roman philosophers. In the piece, Henrikson also appropriated an image from a Baroque work by Anthony Van Dyke and gave it regional spin.
A New Sense of Wonder is funded, in part, by the City of Fairbanks Hotel-Motel Tax Fund, regrant from the Fairbanks Arts Association. The exhibit runs through April 30, 2006.
