"

What we all want is pretty simple, really. We want to be alive. To feel alive. Not just to exist but to thrive, to live out loud, walk tall, breathe free. We want to be less lonely, less exhausted, less conflicted or afraid … more awake, more grateful, more energized and purposeful…

The quest for aliveness explains so much of what we do. It’s why readers read and travelers travel. It’s why lovers love and thinkers think, why dancers dance and moviegoers watch. In the quest for aliveness, chefs cook, foodies eat, farmers till, drummers riff, fly fishers cast, runners run, and photographers shoot…

It’s what we’re hoping for when we pray.

The Department of Fine Arts presents the first art exhibit of the 2014 - 2015 season, From the Faraway Nearby, featuring the North Texas based artists Jesse Morgan Barnett, Diane Durant, Leigh Merrill, and Adam Neese.  The exhibit will run from August 25 - September 27 in the Gallery of the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center.  

 

The title of the exhibition comes from artist Georgia O’Keefe, whom after moving away from New York City to the southwest, began signing her letters to friends with the phrase “from the faraway nearby”.  This oxymoronic statement seemed to capture the spirit of the artists that curator and Assistant Professor Chris Ireland chose to feature in the TSU gallery. All of the artists featured in From the Faraway Nearby use art to figure out the complicated ways in which place can shape and affect us.  Included in the exhibition are photographic landscapes that are traditionally beautiful (showcasing sunsets, lakes, country roads) to ones that utilize personal narrative, digital alteration, and visual metaphors. Some of the artists find inspiration in our network of highways and signposts, while others celebrate the wilds of nature. Others investigate the personal stories that are embedded in their interpretation of the land.  

 

 

The gallery is open from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM on weekdays. The participating artists will be present their work in a brown bag lecture, date/time to be announced soon.

"The whole process of making art is an act of faith in a way. This idea that you’re gonna will something into existence that means something to the larger world."
