Glimpse is an expression of curator Evonne M. Davis’ fascination with and love of materials that reveal the artistic process. With almost 100 national artists and collectives participating, the exhibit features a substantial, immersive range of sketches, sketchbooks, artist books, lists, musings, drawings and studies, “black books,” proof sheets, and doodles on napkins or the backs of envelopes dating from as early as the 1940s to the present day. 

In select sketchbooks, a new page will be turned for each day the gallery is open, creating a subtle change in the composition of the exhibit that evokes the shifting nature of consciousness and memory. Whether it is a black book offered as proof of one’s virtuosity as an aerosol artist or an intimate document mixing text and imagery that has never been shared publicly, each object is evidence of a creative life lived, a dialogue sustained, erased, amended, retraced, and begun again.

Maria Driscoll McMahon: By The Time You Cut Teeth You Are Already Ancient

February 22nd, 2020 – March 28th, 2020
Opening Reception – February 22nd, 7-10pm
Eleta J. Caldwell and Rodney M. Gilbert Memorial Gallery

As of 2019, 29 million people have had their DNA tested. By the Time You Cut Teeth You Are Already Ancient by interdisciplinary installation artist Maria Driscoll McMahon, is, in part, a meta-genealogical investigation that contemplates the psycho-socio-political implications of this phenomenon and serves as a meditation on the wonder and absurdity of the ways the cellular constitution of one’s spit — a body fluid most abject — can, not only serve as a portal to other times and places, but stimulate new narratives which alter subjective perceptions of self.

National lore and mythology originating in one’s ancestral stomping grounds can inform the perceived purpose of one’s life, as “the self,” in identification and sympathy with one’s ancestors permeates boundaries of time and space. What happens when many find heroes, barbarians, princes, paupers, and sworn enemies sitting on the same branch of the family tree? How will the past inform the future?
