For Release through April 11
DALLAS—Two new exhibits will fill the Forum and Studio galleries March 6-April 11 for the Brookhaven College School of the Arts. Canadian sculptor John Greer exhibits John Greer: Alluding to Allusion in the Forum Gallery. Thomas Seawall, printmaker from Commerce, Texas, exhibits Thomas Seawell: The Art Doors Project.
John Greer’s work in sculpture mediates between the indwelling space of the body and the uninhabitable virtual space of the art work. Greer’s professional career includes 48 one-person exhibitions of sculpture, and numerous group exhibitions. His work is in collections at the National Gallery of Canada, the Canada Council Art Bank, the Macdonald Stewart Art Center Sculpture Garden, Guelph, Canada, and the Yongsan Family Park, Seoul, Korea, among many other public and private collections. Greer is professor emeritus at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, where he taught sculpture for 26 years. This exhibition is supported in part by the Canada Council of the Arts.
Thomas Seawell’s Art Doors Project began in the 1980s; the series of miniature screenprints derive from seeing, drawing and photographing the doors where artists once lived. Seawell’s career spans more than 300 one-person and group exhibitions. His prints are in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, and numerous public and corporate collections. Seawell is professor of art at Texas A & M University Commerce.
The reception for the artists is April 11, 6-8 p.m. The exhibitions are free and open to the public.
