Bianca Pettis - Jerome Printmaking

Bianca Pettis Exhibition at High Point Center for Printmaking

Bianca Janine Pettis’ prints are playful, colorful, and indeterminate. She approaches her printmaking practice as a performer - opening herself up to the moment, allowing the work to unfold before her. Through the processes of monoprinting and screenprinting, she brings to life idiosyncratic characters inhabiting a world of courageous anxiety. Pettis holds a BA in Theatre from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio and an MFA in Art from the University of Minnesota.
"Disney Playset After Kinkade" by Paul Shambroom

Paul Shambroom Completes MassMoCA Residency

"During my residency I have been photographing a Disney World Main Street Play Set, circa 1988. The attached image is based on a painting (also attached) of the same subject by American artist Thomas Kinkade (1958-2012). I am also photographing a jigsaw puzzle of the same Kinkade painting. “Past Time: Troubled Visons of the Good Old Days” explores the political and cultural embrace of an idealized America that never existed for many. It contrasts popular imagery of our past with photographs of contemporary life taken in locations that helped form the notion of the “good old days.” My time at MassMOCA includes a recent studio aspect- photographing puzzles and other material depicting idealized American scenes."

Rachel Breen - "Shroud"

Rachel Breen Exhibition at Perlman Teaching Museum

NORTHFIELD, Minn. — Exactly 1,281 white garments hang from the ceiling of the Perlman Teaching Museum’s Braucher Gallery. The collared shirts, knit sweaters, tights, and other items of clothing glow with an eerie luminosity. The 1,281 garments represent the number of Bangladeshi garment workers killed in the Rana Plaza building collapse in 2013, as well as the New Yorkers killed in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in 1911. Both incidents, which happened 102 years apart on different continents, tragically illustrate the dangerous conditions workers who make cheap clothing have faced and continue to face.
Clarence Morgan: Escalation

Clarence Morgan Exhibition at University of Tennessee, Knoxville

This exhibition of drawings and paintings explore linear patterns that operate in a pictorial space. Utilizing random shapes and biomorphic forms within an intricate network of drawing, collage elements and subtle color, Morgan's work ranges from highly patterned organic painting compositions to meticulously articulated and somewhat minimal collage-drawings. This exhibition is dedicated in memory of Arlene Burke-Morgan (October 13, 1950 - December 16, 2017), the artist's wife and artistic partner of 46 years.
