Measured Space (2021)

Marguerite Gilbertson and Tony Veronese

A table and chairs. An invitation to sit and reflect on new norms. But at a distance from one another. This sculpture addresses the feelings of disconnect we’ve faced during the pandemic.

Created by local artists Marguerite Gilbertson and Tony Veronese, Measured Space is one of our Community Togetherness Project (CTP) winning submissions. The CTP was a competition intended to engage and uplift artists and the community during this period of prolonged isolation and uncertainty.

There are two other elements of the Community Togetherness Project:

  • Untitled, a mural located in the outdoor Education Courtyard, and
  • An exhibition of student artwork on view indoors in the ArtWorks Gallery. 


Support for this project was provided by the Wells Fargo Foundation.

Meet the Artists

Marguerite Gilbertson is an interdisciplinary sculpture and performance artist who teaches at Auburn University at Montgomery. Her technical proficiency ranges from working with traditional materials to today’s technology. Her artwork is rooted in her experiences growing up on a cash crop farm in Wisconsin and often explores stereotypes of agriculture and tools as being strictly masculine.

Tony Veronese also teaches at Auburn University at Montgomery and, as a painter, uses visual and contextual incursions to develop his work. Inspired by his suburban upbringing in Montgomery and curiosity about society, remarks become restructured within paintings.
