Join us Monday, November 14th from 6:30 – 8PM in the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture for receptions for our two, current exhibitions – “The View Out His Window [and in his mind’s eye]: Photographs by Jeffery Becton” and “The Lure of Maine: work by Carl Sublett and Holly Stevens”
Jeffery Becton is a photographer and image-maker who lives on Deer Isle, a rocky and forested island off the coast of Maine. Becton makes work, in part, about his surroundings. The extraordinary sweeping coastal views that are such a part of daily life when one lives by the sea are often incorporated into his images. Equally critical is internal life, both the space inside the home (and the comfort and protection it provides from northern New England’s inclement weather), and the introspective and contemplative space that enlivens one’s imagination, which is no doubt encouraged in this stunning and remote location. Becton will be present at the reception.
“The Lure of Maine” is an exhibition of paintings and sketches by two founding members of the UT School of Art faculty and Knoxville 7. During the summer, Sublett and Stevens would travel to their family homes in Maine to paint and sketch along the coast. This exhibition highlights the work from these summer trips.
