Now Showing: At Keystone The Works of Timothy Buckwalkter

San Francisco Multi-Media Contemporary Artist Timothy Buckwalkter to exhibit at Keystone
 La Plume – The Linder Gallery at Keystone College will present an exhibition by San Francisco-based, Pennsylvania-born contemporary artist Timothy Buckwalter from November 2 through December 1 on campus in La Plume.
The exhibition Timothy Buckwalter: Wandering Phantoms Living and Dead features a mixed media presentation that includes paintings, photographs, found objects, and sculptural pieces that present Buckwalter’s continuing investigation into his past and his view that visual culture is a circle of repetition and simulation.
A reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, November 3, from 4-6 p.m. the Gallery and the public is invited. Also, Buckwalter will speak about his direction and work on Monday, November 4, at 9:45 a.m. in the Brooks Theatre at Keystone College. The presentation is also open to the public.
Timothy Buckwalter is one of his generation’s most important archivists of visual images and their personal and societal  significance.
Buckwalter was born and raised in Lancaster, Pa., and is a graduate of The Tyler School of Art. He was one of the first online art critics and bloggers when he began to present the visual essays that are at the foundation of his work. Ever since his days as an undergraduate student, Buckwalter has focused on borrowing and reconstituting of past images, emphasizing how these images change from generation to generation.
He is currently curator of the NIAD Gallery in Oakland, Calif., following years of work as an independent curator producing exhibits in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco area and has exhibited in the Linz Biennial in Austria and at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The Buckwalter exhibit at Keystone will have cultural touchstones for every generation.
“I have been following Tim’s career since his college days. Keystone students will see themselves in this exhibition. It is about music, art, culture, and the ways that all of these areas tend to intersect with life itself,” said James Lansing, Linder Gallery Director. “Tim’s an artist who has never forgotten what has brought him to this point. He remembers what it was like to be a college student, a young graduate, an artist looking back to look forward, and always bringing his ghosts along with him for the ride. He is the real deal, and I would be shocked if this exhibition does not have Keystone students talking.”
