Exploration of 'limits of construction' opens at AFC Gallery tonight

An opening reception hosting the artist of Michael Seeley: Within the Limits of Construction will be held this evening from 6 P.M.-8 P.M. at the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati (AFC) Gallery, located at 811 Race Street.

"Limits of Construction" is a common term used within the architectural and engineering professions to define the boundaries of a work area or site. Seeley's paintings explore the unusual possibilities of surfaces, markings, shadows, and materials that can exist within those limits.

These materials all combine in fleeting combinations – then are gone.

Seeley was born in Indiana and spent much of his youth on the West Coast before settling back in Cincinnati. He holds a degree in architecture from Miami University and is self-taught in art, until recently becoming a Master of Fine Arts Candidate at the same school.

His most recent show was held in August 2012 at the Oxford Community Arts Center.
