Truth and Identity: Questions for the Self in Works by Gary Chapman
January 17 - May 16 2015

Viewed through the lenses of popular culture, identity politics, and religious and social environments, this exhibition explores Chapman’s search for an ultimate "truth” in one’s identity. It follows the artist’s pursuit through paintings and mixed media, layering and displaying images and objects in juxtaposition to suggest moments in time, both past and future, psychological and intellectual, natural and invented. These pursuits stem from Chapman’s own concerns about his place in the world as a husband, a father, an artist, a man, a citizen, and so on. His search echoes the modern world filtered through social media, popular media, cultural, religious, and political realms that seek to define humankind from an outside perspective rather than from internal knowledge.

April 25 - August 29

Sosa's boldly colored paintings and prints were inspired by the confluence of cultures and traditional folk objects, garments, and textiles of southern Mexico and Guatemala.

The New Sublime: Video Works by Courtney Egan
January 17 - May 16

The New Sublime, a multimedia exhibition by New Orleans-based artist Courtney Egan, will bring a touch of spring into the museum. Her botanical art is comprised of projection-based sculptural installations and the works create a surprising association with myth, fairy tale, and modern technology. When discussing her artwork, Egan says, "We get closer and simultaneously farther away from the natural world when we experience it through a technological lens. This new kind of sublime, in which human experience is mediated through a digital device, is enjoyable, illuminating, and disturbing.”
