Come and see and be seen at the opening reception for the Morean’s newest exhibition which is set to open on Saturday, March 12th from 5-9pm. This event is free and open to the public and includes three exciting exhibits.
A swampy, creepy-crawly spin on the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, this exhibition focuses on the ground-dwelling wildlife of Florida. Artist, writer and independent curator D. Dominick Lombardi selected artists from the New York City area, while the Morean selected artists from Central Florida to play by creating drawings which reference things that go bump in the night. The resulting work raises awareness of the history of the game, its relevance to contemporary art, and celebrates the fauna of the Sunshine State.
Jody Fausett: Crush Velvet
Atlanta-based photographer Fausett’s work deals with human vulnerability, the self-construction of facades, the rites of ownership, and the creation of personal icons that represent who and what we are. His ideas are a collision of interests: the encounters he depicts unfold quietly and are laced with the fantastic, a kind of fantastic that deals with personal identity and that overcomes struggle. Fausett is represented by Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta.
