The University Art Gallery presents “Reclamation,” an exhibition of photography, sculpture, and collage by the University of the South’s senior art majors: Ivey Dahlstrom, Violet Hoagland, Barton Perkins and Brianna Young. The exhibit will be on display from April 19–May 11.
With her photographs, Ivey Dahlstrom explores the profoundly ordinary and the experience, look and feel of home. Violet Hoagland honors the possibility of resiliency and healing in her sculpture, creating abstracted human bodies from discarded objects and materials. Barton Perkins builds eerie multimedia collages packed with found objects, glitter, crayon and resin. Presenting a manically cheerful front, his collages are haunted by dark stories and the echoes of familiar images. Brianna Young plays games – her collages shuffle and combine playing cards, advertisements and body parts to explore questions about the body, from objectification and body image, to the mental and physical games of hookup culture, to the physical games of athletes.
An opening reception will be held in the University Art Gallery on Friday, April 19 at 4:30 p.m. On Friday, April 26, beginning at 9 a.m. in Convocation Hall, the seniors will speak about their work as part of Scholarship Sewanee. From 1-3 p.m., Saturday, May 11, the UAG will host a closing reception, celebrating the senior art majors and the close of a successful exhibition season.
The Gallery is located on Georgia Avenue. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon–4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
