All Together Now art exhibit runs June 30 to Aug. 5by Jim Patterson Jun. 15, 2011, 11:34 AM
The Department of Art welcomes a new group exhibition of prints, collages, paintings, and mixed media works by 19 artists from across the country into Space 204. All Together Now
will be displayed June 30 to Aug. 5 in the gallery, located in the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center, 25th and Garland on campus.
An artist reception will be held Friday, July 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. All Space 204 events are free
and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All Together Now focuses on the growing trend of pattern and proletariat influence in contemporary
art and draws together works “not by concept or message,” according to curator Adrienne Miller,
“but through form, color, materials, and the repeated mark.”
“Elements of ‘lower art forms’ are sneaking back into contemporary art in significant ways,” said Miller, a local artist and staff member in the Department of Art. “Artists are using methods
such as silkscreen printing, hand lettering, collage, and other unlikely material combinations with an
awareness of current trends and culture. This type of work bridges the gap of playful, yet intelligent,
having experience and personality without becoming pedantic. The rise of the rock poster, the
influence of folk art, graffiti, craft elements and commercial design are infiltrating traditional gallery
shows and should be seen as significant influences for the upcoming generation of fine artists.”
The 19 artists include Laura Baisden, Kelly Bonadies, Will Bryant, Andrew Burkitt, Chris Cheney,
Gregory Scott Cook, Ann Flowers, Tate Foley, Alyson Fox, Clare J. Bowers, Chad Kouri, Bryce McCloud, Michelle Ramin, Stacey Reason, Sonnenzimmer, Brad Vetter, Betsy Walton, Lindsey Warren, and Lulu Wolf.
