Examinations: AVA Artists Reflecting On The Hunter Museum Collection At AVA July 1-29

Friday, May 20, 2016

The Association for Visual Arts announces an exhibit that grew from a partnership with the Hunter Museum of American Art and emerging artists. This exhibit will take place in AVA’s Landis Education Gallery, opening Friday, July 1, and continuing through July 29. 

There will be an opening reception on Friday, July 1, 5:30-8 p.m. in conjunction with AVA's All Member Salon Show in the Main Gallery. 

This exhibit highlights 13 of AVA’s emerging artists. These artists were asked to choose their favorite artwork in the Hunter’s collection and contemplate how it speaks to them personally and informs their artistic practice. They then spoke about the works and their reaction to them on camera. In Examinations, these videos will be shown alongside recent artworks by the 13 artists.  

“This exhibit celebrates the inspiration artists often draw from studying the works of others,” says Lauren Goforth, Education and Exhibitions director at AVA. “We invite viewers to consider the relationship between artists across media, styles and time periods, and we believe this project gives the viewer insight into the artistic thought process.” 

“Our goal was to remind emerging artists of the importance of viewing art in person and what a huge influence and difference this plays in the creation process,” says Caitlin Dickens, Visitor Experience and Education associate at the Hunter. “We hope these artists will continue to visit us for inspiration and we encourage all guests to visit the original selected works at the Hunter to further understand the dialogue between artists over time.” 

Artists included in this exhibit are: Timur Akhriev, Anderson Bailey, Jessie Bean, Amanda Brazier, Adriana Caloca, Aaron Cowan, Rondell Crier, Steven Eddy, Myles Freeman, Josiah Golson, Laura Little, Heath Montgomery and Maria Willison.  

Exhibits in the Landis Education Gallery are made possible with the support of the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union.
