"B+ (new work and investigations)" Stephen Coles

November 5-December 17
Friday, November 14, 2pm - Gallery Talk in AC215 (Reception in Gallery)

Stephen Coles

Stephen Coles graduated from Alfred University with an MFA in sculpture in May 2010. Born in the United Kingdom, it was through a series of conferences and symposia based around cast iron art that led Coles, to the United States, and eventually to Alfred University. Having always had a keen interest in creative practices Coles started his artistic career by enrolling in a National Diploma in Fine Art at Arts University College Bournemouth, Bournemouth (UK). This then led to Coles studying his BFA in sculpture at The West Wales School of the Arts, Carmarthen (Wales). It was whilst studying at his BFA that he first came into contact with metal casting, and more importantly, attended the 5th International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron art in Ironbridge (UK) in 2006. This conference instilled an appreciation of cast iron as a material within his own sculpture practice, and furthermore led to his interactions in the United States.

“Tear Down, Build Up, Tear Down, Build it Up” Jonathan Metzger and Brandon Barr

January 20 – February 7
Lewis Art Gallery and The Emerging Space

Jonathan Metzger

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. 

Brandon Barr

Brandon Barr is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis in digital media. Barr received his MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University in Alfred, NY and BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at the Kansas City Art Institute. Barr has exhibited work internationally including China and Brazil. His recent work explores abstraction in post-cinematic media through sculptures and installations.

Gallery Talk Friday, January 31 2pm AC 335

“Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern” a touring show
Featuring: Kim Beck, Megan Cotts, Corey Escoto, Brian Giniewski, Crystal Gregory, Kate McGraw, Anna Mikolay, Helen O’Leary, Alex Paik, and Lilly Zuckerman

February 12 – March 26 Lewis Art 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.

Gallery Talk and Reception - March 5th 7pm AC335

John Hitchcock
Art Exhibition

 Monday, August 26 - Tuesday, September 25
Millsaps College Lewis Art Gallery

John Hitchcock, Hellhammer, Millsaps College

John Hitchcock uses large scale prints to explore his relationship to community, land, and culture. Hitchcock creates mythological hybrid creatures by combining large mammals from the Great Plains (buffalo, wolf, boar, deer, moose) and military weaponry (tanks and helicopters) based on his childhood memories and stories of growing up in the Wichita Mountains next to the largest field artillery military base in North America - Fort Sill/Lawton, Oklahoma. He explores notions of good, evil, death, and life cycles. His depictions of beasts, animals, repeat patterns, biological diagrams, symbols from nature, and machines act as metaphors for human behavior and cycles of violence. His artwork is a response to intrusive behavior by humans towards nature and other humans.

Zak Yitro
Gallery Talk & Art Exhibition

Friday, September 6, 2p.m., with reception to follow in Gallery
Millsaps College Academic Complex, Room 215

Zak Yitro, a process image, and his piece Beyond Time

The process of immigration to a new land is a perpetual combination of longing and discovery, frustration and fulfillment. While this is true for an immigrant to any country, Israel presents unique challenges and opportunities to those who wish to become a creative element in society. The visual development of Yitro's work reflects the inner journey and changes that he continues to undergo as he strives to create a positive impact, while communicating his experiences in a visually stimulating manner.

Zak Yitro spent his childhood in Dublin and Manchester, before moving to Israel in the summer of 2005, and now lives in Jerusalem. His decision to make Israel his home is the result of a strong sense of connection to the Jewish people and their spiritual heritage, which continues to inform his creative process to this day. Yitro combines the medias of photography and ink drawing to induce a sense of meditative contemplation.

The motif of the bottle appears in many of his works as a visual reference to the "message in a bottle" and is the impetus for the IMPACT Bottle Project, a radical social photography platform that allows members of diverse cultures to portray themselves as unique individuals.

Thanks to the support of Beth Israel for creating the opportunity for us to have this artist in Jackson to speak and exhibit at Millsaps College. The Emerging Space is located inside the Lewis Art Gallery, located on the 3rd floor of the Academic Complex at Millsaps College. Park underneath the Academic Complex just off Park Avenue from State Street.

Lindsey Landfried
Art Exhibition, Gallery Talk, and Liporello Book Workshop

Monday, November 4-Wednesday, December 11
Millsaps College Lewis Art Gallery

Lindsey Landfried

Gallery Talk: November 21 at 6p.m.
Liporello Book Workshop: November 22 at 11a.m.
Location: Red Word Center for Book and Paper Arts, 140 Wesley Avenue, Jackson, MS, in the Midtown Arts District

Experimenting at the intersection of drawing and sculpture, Landfried makes large-scale works on folded paper by writing a single mark. The mark, a connecting loop, is drawn from left to right on the page, accumulating to create a visual incident of patterns, networks, and color fields that suggest maps, landscapes, weaving, sediment, and bodies of text.

In the work, the loop is also a mark connected to rhythm, sound, and visual noise. The shift in scale between the mark and the accumulation of marks disorients the recipient, creating for the viewer a disconcerting optical tension. The drawings are a record of both a physical process and formal event. The intense repetition, mediation, and monotony of the works draws into question labor versus craft, and reference machines that draw, such as seismographs, echocardiographs, printers, and computers.

The works convey compression and overlapping to evoke parallel time and experiences of displacement. Working within strict limitations, Landfriend's practice develops staccato, tempo, and variation. Through the limitations, the finite and the definite, she builds.

Millsaps College Lewis Art Gallery

Gallery Talk
Thursday, February 7, 7pm in AC 215

Part of the Millsaps Forum series. Reception to follow in the gallery. 

In her project "Visible Women," Christina Nguyen Hung uses tools and techniques commonly associated with the biological sciences to explore and critique scientific visualizations. By experimenting with representational techniques drawn from botany and microbiology, and filtering them through an interpretive framework informed by feminist, and conceptual art, Hung's work poses larger questions that reveal the subjective nature of scientific inquiry and imaging practices throughout history.

Gallery Talk
Thursday, March 21, 7pm in AC 215
Part of the Millsaps Forum series. Reception to follow in the gallery.


Performance Workshop
Friday, March 22
Time and Location TBA. 

Kara Dunne is a printmaker, video, performance and installation artist who lives in Providence, Rhode Island. A recent resident at both the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and the Burren College of Art, Dunne's recent printmaking and video work has been shown in New York, San Diego, and Washington DC. Her creative drive stems from her background in both the visual arts as well as theater; the combination of the two enabled her to explore the opportunities of the live, the staged, and the recorded.

Printmaking often becomes a way of creating prop or costume and it is fully incorporated into her performance and videos. Ultimately, Dunne believes looking at art shouldn't be easy, and she strives to involve the viewer directly in her work through some means of interaction.

Mary Jane Parker "Tracings"
August 15th - September 19th
Millsaps Lewis Art Gallery
Gallery talk and reception Friday, September 14th at 12:30pm in Room 215 of the Academic Complex

MARY JANE PARKER's work combines printmaking techniques with other media including drawing and cut paper. The inspiration for Parker's current work came from observing the masses of foliage that blanketed the New Orleans landscape following Hurricane Katrina. She began photographing them, drawing them and cutting stencils of them. Patterns, mementos, nature and the disquiet of suppressed memories all collide in her current body of work that is both lush and ever so slightly uneasy. Ms. Parker is chair of the Visual Arts Department at the New Orleans Center for Creative where she also teaches.

Millsaps Faculty Show featuring Sandra Murchison and Molly Morin
September 24 - October 24
Millsaps Lewis Art Gallery and Emerging Space
Gallery talks and reception Friday, October 19th at 2pm in the Lewis Gallery

This series of acrylic paintings from Sandra Murchison features information from the Mississippi Blues Trail historical markers in the Delta region. About three years ago, Sandra began collecting information such as text from the markers, bits of nature from around the marker and images of the settings they are found - layering the fragmented stories into the painted collages. This work with the Mississippi Blues Trail markers builds on her previous work with historical markers and her general interest in how america remembers its past. Murchison has committed herself to making a rubbing for each marker in the Delta region for this ongoing project.


Jonathan McFadden "Vowing to Storm the Capital"
October 29 - December 6
Millsaps Lewis Art Gallery and The Emerging Space
Gallery talk and reception Friday, November 9th at 12:30pm in Room 215 of the Academic Complex

"Vowing to Storm the Capital" investigates the cacophony of media in news cycles and how the presentation of this imagery has deferred an understanding of the information and the aggregate cultural landscape it presents. This exhibition of McFadden's work takes the forms of two-dimensional prints, book arts and installation work. McFadden holds a MFA in printmaking from Edinburgh College of Art and is currently an Assistant Professor of Printmaking at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Associate Professor of Printmaking, University of Iowa
"I Am Not There"


This work of art ponders material that re-contextualizes itself through unexpected relationships.  The elements in the work are ephemeral, eventually becoming the overlooked, covered over or discarded, belonging to the backgrounds of our lives. Yet, they are in many ways what we distinctly remember later; the wallpaper of our grandmother's kitchen, the plastic slipcovers in our best friend's house, the color of our bedroom when we were growing-up.

Gallery Talk: September 9, 2011 - 2:00 p.m.

Lori Spencer
Head of Printmaking, University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA
"Vignettes and Silhouettes"


In Vignettes and Silhouettes, Lori Spencer uses the motifs of vignettes and silhouettes as a means to visually explore some of the artist's personal notions on perception and communication. The vignette offers a piece of the whole. The silhouette portrays the whole minus the details. Applied to the idea of perception and communication these motifs suggest both clarity and vagueness: a connection or acknowledgment as well as a distraction or disregard.

In the drawings, prints and photo-based work that comprise the show the use of the typographic brace symbol is predominant, functioning both as silhouette and vignette. The brace has the ability to group and contain meaning as well as function as a graphic silhouetted mark. Also prevalent in the work is the classic vignette in the form of an oval. This vignette functions as a peephole, allowing glimpses into a larger narrative.

Showing: September 26, 2011 - October 28, 2011
Friday Forum: October 21, 2011 - 12:30 p.m.

Ross Jahnke
Professor of Printmaking, Nicholls State University, Thibodaux, LA
"Fast Food"

Ross Jahnke's show Fast Food includes paintings and prints of familiar foods that are so prevalent in our lives. Attention to color, mark and light bring attention to both the enticing and repulsive nature of the subject. The intent is not to politicize the fast food industry as in "Super Size Me", or to entice further consumption, but to embody the love hate relationship we have with burgers and fries, and occasionally the toy that comes with the meal.

Showing: November 4, 2011 - December 2, 2011

Cynthia Thompson - "Murmur"
My work contains strong religious undertones and has often been described as "Catholic" in nature. The surfaces and materials I use in my work refer to skin or flesh, their ability to allure and seduce the viewer is of great importance. Using the body as the site of intense investigation, I explore the physical manifestations of denial, shame and oppression; issues surrounding the female body and the social expectations implanted in girlhood. In particular, I share my own experiences of having grown up female in the religious South.
