MONTICELLO, Ark. — “PARTERRE,” an exhibition of paintings by Dan Charbonnet, can be viewed in the Glassblock Gallery in the Fred J. Taylor Library and Technology Center on the University of Arkansas at Monticello’s campus during the month of September 2022.
Charbonnet’s art is grounded in the rudiments of painting. He strives to achieve balance between process and application. For Charbonnet, the studio work, both as an object and compulsive action, is about being aware and being present. His creative process involves the distillation of experience and composing these moments into painting constructions. These arrangements of material, space and color pursue harmony and intention.
Charbonnet is a Louisiana native and graduate of the University of New Orleans, where he received a Master of Fine Arts in painting. His works are in museums and private collections across the country including the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
The exhibition is open to the public now through the end of September. The gallery’s hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.; and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
