The Museum of Arts and Sciences presents its 3rd annualEmerging Artists exhibition, showcasing rising stars from the Southeast. Six contemporary artists, representing some of the nation’s finest undergraduate and graduate art programs, will display works ranging from large-scale abstract paintings to paper forms and ceramics. The exhibition opens on March 6, 2015 and runs through June 28, 2015.
The fourth in a series of exhibitions on this theme, showing thinking 2015 provides an opportunity for five current faculty at Agnes Scott College to assemble and articulate their individual creative processes rather than to display finished products, as is more typical of gallery exhibitions. Process and practice, in multiple senses, shape this exhibition.
This year’s exhibition features faculty from Creative Writing, Romance Languages, Mathematics, Marine Biology, and Studio Art. While they foreground their primary scholarly and creative practices, they also demonstrate, through serendipitous intersections, the ways that ideas can and do emerge, for teachers and students alike, beyond the classroom, between collaborators, through risk and imagination and attention, in mundane moments.
January 29- February 27, 2015

Cross-Reference, Emory Visual Arts Department Faculty & Alumni Exhibition
Exhibition Dates: January 31 - April 5, 2014

The Visual Arts Gallery at Emory University announces Cross-Reference, an exhibition of faculty and selected alumni on view from Friday, January 31 – Saturday, April 5, 2013. Guest curated by Rebecca Dimling Cochran, the exhibition highlights the important contributions the Visual Arts Department has made to Emory University.
As the center for the study and practice of contemporary art on Emory campus, the Visual Arts Department & Gallery has sought to strengthen the role of creativity and artistic exploration as a vital element of liberal arts education. Since its original inception as the Studio Arts Program in the late 1960s, and later as an official department and gallery in the 2000s, contemporary visual art on Emory’s campus has served as a vehicle for innovative inquiry and discussion around all manner of subjects. Indeed, the recognition of ingenuity, imagination, and visual literacy as essential and complimentary to academic research and scholarship have been the Department's highest priorities.
Since 2006, the Visual Arts Gallery has organized over thirty-five exhibitions with related lectures and symposia that have resulted in creative collaborations with colleagues in various departments as well as opportunities for students to experience a visual interpretation of a range of subjects. Cross-Reference honors this past by including works that address subjects directly related to mathematics, history, literature, psychology, environmental studies, medicine, and behavioral science among other subjects.
The Visual Arts Department at Emory University is scheduled to officially close in the summer of 2014. We invite you to join us as we commemorate the contributions Visual Arts has made to Emory University.
Participating artists include:
Joy Drury Cox
*Ruth Dusseault's Seven-Minute Walden will be on view one week only from January 31 - February 8.
Special thanks to the Hightower Fund of Emory University and the Emory Friends of Visual Arts.
For more information, please contact Faith McClure in the Emory Visual Arts Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.712.4397. Gallery hours are from Monday through Thursday, 10am - 4pm and on Saturdays from 12-4pm.

Drawing Inside the Perimeter includes more than 45 drawings from the High's permanent collection, as well as two wall drawings by HENSE and Rocio Rodriguez created exclusively for the exhibition.
Artists in the exhibition include: Sean Abrahams, Alejandro Aguilera, Tristan Al–Haddad, Radcliffe Bailey, Philip Carpenter, Don Cooper, Brian Dettmer, Craig Drennen, Sarah Emerson, Kojo Griffin, HENSE, Benjamin Jones, Jason Kofke, Ruth Laxson, Ann Marie Manker, Katherine Mitchell, Jiha Moon, Andy Moon Wilson, Yanique Norman, Joe Peragine, Fahamu Pecou, Seana Reilly, Susan Robert, Rocio Rodriguez, Ben Roosevelt, Brandon Sadler, Nathan Sharratt, Freddie Styles and Katherine Taylor, among others.
Drawing Inside the Perimeter focuses on drawing as a means of making sense of the world, rather than as a step on the way to producing artwork in another medium, such as with a preparatory sketch. The drawings in the exhibition act as a roadmap to the crisscrossing avenues of artistic production in Atlanta and reflect the chaotic, dynamic spirit of the city.
Most of the works in the exhibition were acquired since 2010 with support from the Lambert Fund, which was established by the late art patron and gallerist Judith Alexander. Native Atlantan, Judith Alexander, was one of the city's most influential art patrons and supporter of Atlanta and Georgia artists until her death in 2004. The Fund was named in recognition of her friend, the Atlanta-based curator and advocate for Georgia artists, Marianne Lambert. The collection and exhibition is the result of a three-year collaboration between Lambert and the High's Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Michael Rooks.

About This Book
Stickers features approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Cheap, democratic, easy to "tag," and not always fast to fade, the sticker has been an ever-present medium—from the New York and London underground punk scene to skate culture and political expression. Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium, Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. Stickers includes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon and Jenny Holzer; street artists such as Banksy, Neck Face, and Barry McGee; and amateur artists who "tag" the streets anonymously. With texts from artists and writers, including Swoon, Stanley Donwood, ESPO, Clayton Patterson, Carlo McCormick, and Michael Betancourt, Stickers illustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. Packaged in an oversized clamshell box, the deluxe edition features 23 large, original die-cut stickers, many of which are signed by the artist.
