The walls of 108 Contemporary are covered in insects, but don’t call the exterminator. A variety of insects arranged in symmetrical patterns are but part of the gallery’s latest exhibition, Beauty Unseen: Jennifer Angus and Bob Sober. A professor of design studies at the University of Wisconsin, Angus makes art installations from dead bugs pinned to the wall in patterns referencing textiles and wallpaper. Tulsa artist Sober creates close-up images of Angus’ installations. What could be considered macabre is instead fascinating and beautiful as viewers discover bright designs, colors and combinations created first by nature and then by artist. Beauty Unseen is a part of the New Genre Festival, which officially opens Feb. 25. The exhibit opened Feb. 7 and runs through March 23 at 108 E. Brady St. 108 Contemporary is open noon-7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday. For more, visit www.108contemporary.org.
