Dale Kennington: Mythologies
January 25 - May 4, 2014

Dale Kennington’s paintings engage viewers both intellectually and emotionally. Following the death of her husband in 2002, she created two series of wood folding screens titled “Contemporary Mythologies” and “Subjective Mythologies,” each combining representational illusion with penetrating emotion. Borrowing from the design principles of Asian folding screens, Kennington painted both sides of each screen as complementary halves of a single idea. These unique works of art by one of the South’s most prominent female artists will make a lasting impression.

These unique works of art by one of the South’s most prominent female artists will make a lasting impression.

Stephen Lawson’s photographic works have been called “what memory looks like.” Using film (not digital) cameras that he has mechanically modified, Lawson has created fascinating sectioned panoramas shot over varying periods of time. Unlike other time exposures, Lawson’s photographs allow viewers to simulate the sensation of actually being on location, while experiencing the “fourth dimension.” His photographs are composed of dozens, even hundreds, of separate “slices” of visual reality, each captured at a specific moment in time.

Dale Kennington: Mythologies
January 25 - May 4, 2014

Dale Kennington’s paintings engage viewers both intellectually and emotionally. Following the death of her husband in 2002, she created two series of wood folding screens titled “Contemporary Mythologies” and “Subjective Mythologies,” each combining representational illusion with penetrating emotion. Borrowing from the design principles of Asian folding screens, Kennington painted both sides of each screen as complementary halves of a single idea. These unique works of art by one of the South’s most prominent female artists will make a lasting impression.

Dale Kennington: Mythologies
January 25 - May 4, 2014

Dale Kennington’s paintings engage viewers both intellectually and emotionally. Following the death of her husband in 2002, she created two series of wood folding screens titled “Contemporary Mythologies” and “Subjective Mythologies,” each combining representational illusion with penetrating emotion. Borrowing from the design principles of Asian folding screens, Kennington painted both sides of each screen as complementary halves of a single idea. These unique works of art by one of the South’s most prominent female artists will make a lasting impression.
