2013-2014 Season

FALL 2013

 

'From Where I Stand'
Exhibit by Duncan Baird

 

Artist Reception:
Thursday, August 22, 6 p.m.

Exhibit: 
August 22-September 26

Duncan Baird is drawn to the ancient and what lies outside contemporary Western culture, feeling a stirring of the deeply familiar and a coalescence of human spirit. He strives to link present self to a larger self in the forms he creates, making art become a search for connectedness. The forms he chooses are stripped bare of time, with little adornment of narrative. His art is born of the coincidence of a primordial, voiceless depth projected into a noisy current of now—the ancient bridled by an urgent, hopeful present.

Works of Howard Finster
Exhibit
 

Opening Reception:
Thursday, October 3, 6 p.m.

Exhibit: 
October 3-31

Howard Finster emerged from the rural Appalachian culture of Alabama and Georgia to become one of America’s most important
modern folk artists. A Baptist preacher and self-proclaimed “man of visions,” Finster became a fixture in American pop culture in the 1980s. His eccentric personality, prolific output, and critical and popular acclaim guaranteed him a place as one of the most visionary self-taught artists of the 20th century. Before his death in 2001, he produced more than 46,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints. A variety of compelling pieces from Finster’s highly personal body of artwork will be on display courtesy of The Denton Collection.

Spring 2014

 

Works by Jason Twiggy Lott
Exhibit
 

Artist Reception:
Thursday, January 23, 6 p.m.

Exhibit:
January 23-February 20

Mississippi artist Jason Twiggy Lott’s work references decay and renewal, the physical and spiritual, the external and internal worlds. His work ranges from abstract painting to oil portraiture and found object assemblage. Most of the materials he utilizes—discarded items found in trashcans, abandoned homes and businesses, and in the streets—are procured around his hometown. His work speaks to our fundamental understanding of the human condition, underscoring the idea that what we leave behind can say as much about the present as it does about the past.

"Biting My Own Teeth"

Exhibit by Annie Heisey

Alice Hirt and Jo Bearse Endowed Art Exhibition
 

Artist Reception:
Thursday, February 27, 6 p.m.

Exhibit:
February 27-April 4

“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” This quote by British philosopher Alan Watts sets the tone for this exhibition by figurative painter Annie Heisey, who draws on arthistorical symbols and themes to explore the concepts of self-awareness and self-exploration. In this body of work, she strives to investigate the motives, passions and self-deceptions that clutter the brain. She guides her subjects as they wander through the labyrinth of emotions, desires and frustrations of life, creating images that explore universal concepts through personal reflection.

This show is the Alice Hirt and Jo Bearse Endowed Art Exhibition.
