An example of artist Megan Geckler


Megan Geckler: Tunnel Vision

Old Masonic Hall
June 14 – September 1, 2024

Tunnel Vision is a solo exhibition of work by Megan Geckler. The centerpiece is a stunning, large-scale installation created from flagging tape in a vibrant array of colors. Typically used in industries like forestry and construction, the extruded PVC film suspends from the gallery ceiling to the floor, forming a mesmerizing, floating mass of gradients that shift between a spectrum of hues.

In the gallery storefront are several pieces from Geckler’s Woven Panels series, where she meticulously layers flagging tape into intricate, geometric patterns.  

The exhibition title references Geckler’s process. After hoisting the flagging tape, she cuts pathways through the flagging tape for viewers to navigate. These tunnels offer multiple entry points into the installation, allowing individuals to explore and engage with the artwork in their own unique way. By encouraging visitors to move beyond the perimeter of the installation and immerse themselves in the colorful strands, Geckler invites them to take control of their experience and create their own journey through this playful and immersive environment. 

At the conclusion of the exhibition, Geckler returns the flagging tape to be recycled and re-extruded, ensuring that the materials used in her art can be repurposed for future projects. Overall, Tunnel Vision offers a dynamic and interactive exploration of color, form, and space, inviting viewers to engage with the artwork on a personal and self-directed level.
