BLOOMSBURG — Installation art grabs the spotlight during an opening reception for an exhibit by Carlie Trosclair on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Bloomsburg University’s Haas Gallery of Art. The works will remain on display through March 15.

Winner of the St. Louis Riverfront Times Mastermind Award, Trosclair creates art that alters the sense of place. She draws from architecture and uses basic tools like textiles, wallpaper and furniture to create art that explores new worlds.

Trosclair, who lives and works in St. Louis, Mo., recently attended residencies at Vermont Studio Center and Woodside Contemporary Artists Center in New York. She earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Loyola University in New Orleans. Trosclair is a fellow of the Community Arts Training Institute and collaborative teaching artist-in-residence at Rebuild Foundation, both in Missouri.

The Haas Gallery of Art is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon until 2 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays and university holidays. The reception is open to the public and free of charge.
