Gallery hours: Monday - Friday, 9am - 4pm
The Lewis Art Gallery is located on the third floor of the Academic Complex at Millsaps College. The Gallery's "Emerging Space" exhibits new media, film and installation works by artists exploring the limits of their mediums.
This work explores the space between my father’s work shed and my mother’s kitchen. It is between these two spaces that I find myself, and create an alternative reality. Growing up in a conservative, farming community, within a family of boys.

Reception to follow in the gallery
This group exhibition revisits the reductive aspects of modernist abstraction and explores its impact in a contemporary context. The ten participating artists critically digest the visual tools of repetition, rhythm and pattern.
Their inquiries into the lineage and fundamentals of abstraction are often infused with a personal and subjective anecdotes. Through rigorous formal investigation, these artists iterate broadly; from wrought family history to slap dash humor. The interjection of this material often repudiates the precedent tones of modernist minimalism. The exhibiting artists approach this work through a variety of media ranging from installation and paintings to glass and ceramic. The visual simplicity echoes against a sincere and pointed investigation of materials, aesthetics, history and context.
