Tanner | Hill Gallery Hosts Exhibit By Damien Crisp

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Tanner | Hill Gallery will host an opening reception of Interference, a solo show of artwork by Damien Crisp, on Thursday, Dec. 14, between 5-8 p.m. The gallery is at 3069 Broad St.  

Review for the exhibit: 

Employing poetic gestures, Mr. Crisp suspends direct interpretations of his artwork through emotive mark-making, and he develops new linguistic associations with repetitive text. His artwork intuitively relates to anyone living in the 21st century, and provides thought-provoking exercise for semioticians, painters, and psychoanalysts. 

Mr. Crisp is an artist currently living and working in Chattanooga. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and his Master of Fine Arts at School of Visual Arts in New York City. His work includes painting, writing, photography, collage, and installation. 

This show is part of a curatorial series by Ashley Hamilton. This exhibition will be open by appointment after the opening. To set up an appointment, contact Ashley Hamilton at 580-4645 or AshleyHamiltonArt@gmail.com.

Roy Exum: The Lamar Rants

Being a child of the South, I’ve marveled at our funny sayings for all of my life. I’ve been at a football game and heard a disgruntled fan in the stands say of his team’s quarterback, “That boy couldn’t play dead in a cowboy movie.” I’ve been at the Sunday supper table and heard, “I’m of a mind each one of his sermons is better than the next.” And I’ve sat in a Saturday morning ...
