Familiarity of Form - MFA Thesis Art Exhibit

Nov. 18–Dec. 4
Lee Gallery
M–F, 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
Artist Talks & Reception: F, Nov. 22, 6–8 p.m.

The works of Sara Mays and Annamarie Williams deal with the familiarity of form by disrupting what was once considered ordinary. Upon first glance, the forms appear recognizable, but upon further inspection, the forms are made anew.

The works of Mays are an ongoing collection of objects that connect to create a specific visceral experience. Through humoristic play, Mays seeks to connect color, pattern and material in order to produce a deeper experience of the everyday location. The works of Williams use humor as a vehicle for contemplating empathic relationships with abject bodies. The work creates spaces in which characters possessing abject qualities can flourish.
