[ad_1]

Texas Tech University’s School of Art, part of the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts, is hosting a gallery installation titled “The Tap,” created by M12 Studio, through April 24.

“The Tap” gallery installation is a meditation on the Ogallala Aquifer at the Llano Estacado. The Ogallala is one of the largest aquifers in the world, lying beneath eight states with a footprint that is home to some of the oldest species on the planet — bison, sandhill cranes, pronghorn antelope and others.

Gathering thousands of miniature porcelain vessels over large surfaces and curvatures, Grégoire Scalabre confronts preconceptions of form, scale, and material in his intricate sculptures. The Paris-based artist hand-turns countless tiny, vase-like containers reminiscent of amphorae, or ancient storage jars that were typically long and narrow so that they could be snugly stored together. Drawing on a centuries-old tradition of French porcelain making and an interest in Greek mythology, his dynamic works combine incredible technical skill with a desire to recast the medium in a new light and experiment with its physical limits.

Approximately 1 to 1.5 inches in height and half an inch wide, every one of Scalabre’s minuscule components varies slightly from the next. Some have longer flutes than others, squatter bases,

Why is Ukraine the epicenter of this war?

Ukraine is a country with an abundance of rich and complex historical events. Until the late 20th century, the country was dominated by Poland, Lithuania, and Russia and was a member of the Soviet Union, known as the Ukrainian Soviet Specialist Republic. In 1990, the Soviet Union began to fall apart, urging Ukraine to take action and declare sovereignty and independence shortly after. 

The declaration was highly favored by all, and after years of domination, their wishes were granted in a plebiscite. As of December 1991, Ukraine was an independent country and contributed to the formation of the Commonwealth of Independent States – an association of countries that were once part
