EK Huckaby at {Poem88}

November 20th, 2012 Jason Parker Posted in Event, Installation, Painting, Sculpture No Comments »

EK Huckaby brings his inimitable paintings and assemblages back to {Poem88} for his second solo exhibition, “The Ocean Casts the Greatest Shadow.”

Working from found images from out-of-print tomes of Near Eastern travel, the behavior of honey-bees, and 19th century inventions, Huckaby gives a glimpse into the mysteries and travails of early modernity.

In his carefully translucent images, Huckaby congeals extinct animals, light bulbs, and fruit markets, alike, in his home-made concoctions of Old World glazes. Huckaby, whose career enters its third decade, persists in exploring the possibilities of painting to evoke hidden worlds and poetic interpretation.

Huckaby’s work is included in important museum and private collections including, locally, The High Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art- Georgia (MOCA-GA).

Dec. 15, 2012 to Feb. 2, 2013.

Matt Haffner at KSU

October 3rd, 2012 Jason Parker Posted in Artist Talk, Event, Installation, Public Art No Comments »

The Zuckerman Museum of Art at Kennesaw State University presents “Walking Through the Lonesome City,” a site-specific installation by Matt Haffner, in the lobby of the School of Art & Design.

Occupying the foyer of the Visual Arts Building, video portraits of working-class individuals will be projected over vinyl and aluminum cutouts that detail aspects of an urban environment.

This visual narrative will be visible to anyone walking in or near the building, collapsing the distinction between inside and outside, art and architecture, and gallery and public space. This project is supported by an NEA Art Works grant and organized by the Zuckerman Museum of Art.

A public art panel discussion precedes the opening reception on Thursday, October 11, at 2 p.m. in the Onyx Theater at 1000 Chastain Rd., Building 28.

The exhibition opening reception and artist talk will take place following the panel discussion and begin at 3:15 p.m. in the Visual Arts building lobby.
