2016 Faculty Biennial at Cornell Fine Arts Museum

May 2, 2016

On view April 16th – May 15th, 2016

Included in this exhibition is a new work, The Sunshine Bores | The Daylights, which takes the form of a single-channel video with audio and composite photograph that builds upon earlier projects (The Tree Alone and The Weight of Centuries) that respond to Virginia Woolf’s novel, The Waves.  Artist and musician Rachel Blumberg contributed audio tracks to the video work. Having formed a much admired friendship with Blumberg during my decade in Portland, Oregon in the 1990’s, this collaborative aspect is an important link to the complicated relationship between loss and nostalgia in The Waves.

Also included in this exhibition is new work by Josh Almond, Rose Casterline, Dana Hargrove and Rachel Simmons. Find out  more HERE.

Cavaliers of Nowhere at The William King Museum

September 11, 2014

Cavaliers of Nowhere: Photographs by Tammy Mercure and Dawn Roe

Opening Reception First Thursday, September 4 from 6-8 p.m.
September 5, 2014 – January 18, 2015
United Company Contemporary Regional Gallery

This two-person exhibition connects contemporary photographers Tammy Mercure of Nasheville, Tennessee and Dawn Roe of Asheville, North Carolina. Mercure has been photographing the louder people and places of the Southeast since 2008 in her series entitled Cavaliers I & II. She consistently captures a wayward vision of Appalachia in up-close portraits of low-culture, regional provincialism, and burning recklessness. In quieter places, Roe’s landscapes document overgrown outdoor spaces in her series This is Nowhere. The swarms of kudzu, fallen branches, and unpopulated locales deliver a haunting sense of isolation and abandonment that echoes throughout the Appalachian Mountains.  Through these ongoing photographic projects by Mercure and Roe, this exhibition examines the distinct social and physical realities of rural Appalachia.

Clemson University’s Art Department was awarded a $5,000 grant by the South Carolina Arts Commission allowing the Center for Visual Arts at Clemson University to bring the internationally and nationally recognized editor, founder and curator of Fraction Magazine, David Bram to curate the exhibition, Sense of Place.
