Joseph Newsome Debuts BFA Show “Cope” on April 2

Posted on: February 11th, 2016 by Caroline Davis No Comments

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film’s Spring 2016 BFA Senior Thesis Exhibition series continues with a solo show opening Saturday, April 2, by BFA in Photography degree candidate Joseph Newsome: Cope, a fractal memory installation confronting childhood sexual abuse. The second installment of five from 12 graduating students in the Departments of Fine Art and Photography, Cope will be staged off campus at a location to be announced shortly.

Show title: Cope (photography, sculpture, and installation)

Cope is a large-scale memory installation comprised of fractal architecture, objects, and performance. The work serves as a mediator for the conversation about male childhood sexual abuse and mental health issues related to those experiences. The space itself exists in the construct of a white cube that is 30 feet by 30 feet and 15 feet tall, with a hallway entrance and two rooms.

“By re-fabricating architecture and objects from childhood memories, I create a physical catharsis. Dealing with a history of sexual abuse and trauma is difficult but I think it is important for people to find solace in the chaos of darkness. There is always hope; it is just locked away deep in our minds. This installation is an attempt to help myself and others who may be struggling to find their way there.”

For more information on Cope, including blueprints and renderings, visit jnewsomefineart.com/cope.

Joining Newsome in this spring Fine Art and Photography thesis series are Mackenzie Maroney and Cassi Wright, March 24-April 3; David Anderson, Andrew Cox and Christopher Strachan, April 7-17; Lily Adcock, Upre’yl Mitchell and Sophia Stevenson, April 21-May 1; and Mali Hamilton, Aaron Harper and Rebecca Lindley, May 5-15. These four shows will be on view in Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery, located in the main academic building on the Watkins campus. All series  exhibitions and receptions are free.

Watkins Welcomes Sculptor Steve Tobin February 18

Posted on: January 30th, 2016 by Caroline Davis No Comments

World-renowned sculptor Steve Tobin, who explores natural forms through monumental works in glass, bronze, steel and clay, will speak at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film on Thursday, February 18, at 6:30 p.m. as part of the school’s Visiting Artists Series.

The artist talk, titled “Steve Tobin: Natural World,” will detail his creative process and highlight several of his major installations.

The event, held in the Watkins Theater, is free and the public is invited. His appearance is in conjunction with his solo exhibition Southern Roots, which will be on view on the grounds and in the Museum of Art at Cheekwood February 20–September 4, 2016 (indoor exhibition ends May 29).

Steve Tobin KEK2540 WwebA native of Philadelphia’s Main Line, Steve Tobin earned a degree in Theoretical Mathematics from Tulane University, where he also participated in a glass-blowing class. He pursued his artistic career with study in glass at Pilchuck Glass School, WA and Penland School of Crafts, NC. Teaching appointments and fellowships in glass followed, and in 1989, he became the first foreigner invited to build his own studio in Murano, Italy. (He is entered in the Guinness Book of World Records for having blown the world’s biggest bottle.) His 15-year exploration of the medium of glass culminated in 1993 with a blockbuster installation in the caves at Retretti in Punkaharju, Finland.

In 1994, Tobin built his first bronze foundry and began to cast bronze; his monumental bronze sculptures include towering termite hills in Africa, forest floor detritus in rural Pennsylvania, a shelter made of Matzoth wafers, and the sprawling root systems of dead trees. Known for pushing the limits of his materials, he began experimenting with various ceramics processes in 1999, and detonated thousands of pounds of wet clay to make “Exploded Earth” vessels, whose forms suggest that landscape is an event.

Cheekwood’s Steve Tobin: Southern Roots features work from his Steelroots sculptures, an evolution of his signature bronze Walking Roots series. In 2005, Tobin gained acclaim when his massive bronze “Trinity Root” sculpture was installed in the courtyard of St. Paul’s Church in New York City, becoming the first and only 9/11 memorial near Ground Zero. The piece was cast from the stump and roots of a large sycamore tree that shielded the church from the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center.

His work has been shown internationally at such venues as the American Museum of Natural History, United States Botanic Garden, Carpe Diem Gallery (Paris), the Page Museum/La Brea Tar Pits and Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, and is part of permanent collections at the American Craft Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, American Glass Museum, the White House, and Musee des Arts Decoratifs (Switzerland).
In 2007, a Tobin Steelroots creation was among the 40 sculptures chosen for the City of New York’s “40 Years of Art in the Parks” retrospective, gracing the entrance to Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

He lives and works in Bucks Country, PA. For more information, visit stevetobin.com.

Now in its sixth year, The Watkins Visiting Artists Series welcomes nationally and internationally recognized fine artists, designers, filmmakers, educators and critics to the campus and the community. The guest artists, whose work crosses many disciplinary boundaries, give public presentations, sharing their expertise and perspectives on their careers and providing insight into issues facing contemporary artists and designers. The VAS offers the area’s cultural community a rare opportunity to engage the work and ideas of trendsetting visual artists, designers, filmmakers and intellectuals. The critically acclaimed initiative has not only brought a number of internationally renowned artists to Nashville—like first-time visitors Harrell Fletcher, R. H. Quaytman, Martha Rosler, David Hilliard, Jonathan Katz, Alec Soth and Artemio Rodriguez—but it has also invigorated the local art scene by introducing artists working in new media and performance—artists like Nick Briz, Jon Satrom and Liz Magic Laser (2013 New York Armory Artist)—and those expanding the parameters of traditional media and art practice—such as Jessica Hische, Ashley Hunt, Chris Sickels, Deborah Luster (2013 Guggenheim Fellow) and Natalia Almada (2013 MacArthur Fellow).

Documentary photographer Carolyn Drake (Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellowships, Lange-Taylor Prize) launched the 2015-16 series with a lecture in November.

Watkins is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in MetroCenter; free parking is available in the campus lot.

About Steve Tobin: Southern Roots
In 2016, Cheekwood will present the work of internationally-acclaimed artist Steve Tobin. This exhibition, Steve Tobin: Southern Roots, will not only be on view in the Museum of Art, but it will also continue throughout Cheekwood’s vast landscape. Five outdoor areas will host Tobin’s monumental work, most notably his “Steel Root” sculptures.  While in the Museum, visitors will have the opportunity to experience Southern Roots in the second floor gallery spaces, each providing an intimate setting to observe a particular style and medium from the artist’s vast portfolio of work. In addition to steel and bronze, Tobin incorporates natural elements such as wood, glass, and ceramics into his beautiful, mysterious, and dramatic pieces of sculpture.  Tobin’s newest work, using wood from fallen trees in Costa Rica, has never before been exhibited, and will be a highlight of the Steve Tobin: Southern Roots exhibition.

Steve Tobin: Southern Roots will be on view on the grounds and in the Museum of Art at Cheekwood February 20– September 4, 2016 (indoor exhibition ends May 29). For programming details and tickets, visit cheekwood.org.

Fall BFA Series Continues November 19 with Fine Art Paintings and Performance

Posted on: October 23rd, 2015 by Caroline Davis

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents BFA Thesis Exhibitions 2015, a three-part series from six graduating students in the Departments of Fine Art and Photography. Second up is work from Fine Art majors Mika Agari and Casey Payne. Opening Thursday, November 19, with a reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m., Agari’s Lightweight and Payne’s Sporting Magic will be on display in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery through November 29.

Mika Agari, “Lakefront”

A multimedia artist who specializes in performances in public spaces, Mika Agari has exhibited her work locally at The Packing Plant, WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery) and Third Man Records (her video work Walmart & Security Space was screened at Light and Sound Machine) and at the Asheville Art Museum, as part of Prime Time: Third Annual New Media Juried Exhibition. She also co-curated the July 2015 exhibition In Place, in an empty storefront of the Global Mall in Antioch.

Lightweight explores white-space and white products that assume neutral qualities associated with white. In Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, the whiteness of the whale is described as the source of the whale’s terror, even though white is also described as virginal and pure. Agari works with a variety of different materials in order to bring out the many layers and metaphors associated with the lack of color: cleanliness, death, atheism, weddings, neutrality, etc.

Casey Payne’s Sporting Magic features sculpture and oil painting reflecting themes seriousness, love, innocence, and faith. Interested in the connection between art and caregiving, he primarily works with paint, using abstract representations as a tool for extending an experience and psychotherapy. Subjectivity in the work is arrived by observation, day-to-day, nostalgia, found objects, gifts, and photography.

He has exhibited extensively, in group shows at Watkins, Ground Floor Gallery, Main Street Gallery, The Packing Plant, 40AU, Cummins Station, Sawtooth Printshop and Chinatown Soup (New York) and in solo shows at WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery) and Open Gallery.

The exhibitions and reception are free and the public is invited. Watkins is located at 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in MetroCenter; free parking is available in the campus lot. For more information, visit Watkins.edu or call 615.383.4848.

Read Up on ‘Marginal Texts’ by Micah Mathewson and Hayley Vanhoy at WAG November 7

Posted on: October 13th, 2015 by Caroline Davis

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents Marginal Texts, an exhibition of paintings, performance and poetry by Watkins Fine Art students Micah Mathewson and Hayley Vanhoy, at its downtown gallery WAG during the November 7 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

Micah Mathewson Fishers 2015 WwebA junior from Sarasota, Florida, Mathewson will offer abstract paintings “with extra formal concerns at play.”

Statement: “These gristly abstractions begin to suggest literary content emerging from the particular forms, surfaces and contradictory spatial constructions of my paintings. The paintings are complete when they begin to trigger reflections of particular Old Testament mythologies. These ancient stories, when filtered through contemporary modes of imaging (i.e. graphic design, montage and collage), begin to reflect critically on those stories, histories and on the current condition of painting.”

Vanhoy, a junior from Concord, North Carolina, is showing two video documentations of performances as well as a book of poetry.

Statement: “Through the work that I make, I am trying to navigate the spaces within and around me, learning, falling, mending, and growing along the way. I am very interested in margins, language, quietness, affect and effect, and the time in between. Though my work grows from my personal interests and experiences, attempting to resolve meaning though them, I hope that it has the ability to speak to something much larger than myself, and to resonate with others in the same way that art resonates with me.”

WAG logo Watkins color rsz WwebWAG–an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery–is located in suite 77 upstairs in the historic Arcade and is open the first Saturday evening of the month during each Art Crawl (from 6-9 p.m.), and by appointment.

Alumnus Matt Christy Returns September 5 to WAG

Posted on: September 3rd, 2015 by Caroline Davis

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film will welcome alumnus Matt Christy back to Nashville by presenting an exhibition of paintings from his series Always Never Now during the September 5 show in its downtown gallery WAG.

Untitled (collage and mixed media on paper, 42" x60", 2015)

Untitled (collage and mixed media on paper, 42″ x60″, 2015)

Christy earned his BFA in Fine Art from Watkins and was recently awarded an MFA from the University of Oregon (Eugene), where he was Associated Faculty at CoreSTUDIO, the Department of Art’s Foundation Program. His Nashville homecoming show will also provide an opportunity to meet Watkins’ new President, J. Kline, Ph.D., whose tenure as the school’s 16th leader began mid-July.

Always Never Now is a series of works that have taken different forms: drawings, animation, performance, and even music. Christy likens his large collage paintings to stills from perverse, goofy, existential Saturday morning cartoons. Their intense colors against chalky black backgrounds create an uneasy feeling of blaring brass sounds. In the center collage two horn players garishly announce a car wreck, as if celebrating this moment of self-destruction. Furniture rolls, signals skip off heads, and symbols bounce around in a blank night. They have banners with perverse and truncated messages. According to Christy, “The phrase ‘Always Never Now’ is a self-contradicting phrase about constantly deferred hopes and revolutions that never arrive. It is about how time never fulfills its promises, but it’s also a constantly becoming liberation that comes through daily destruction.”

About the artist

Matt Christy is a figment, a water dog, a speck. He’s been in several failed relationships. He graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from Watkins in 2007. Then he built a goat shed out of mud. Earlier this year he got a stamp of approval from ole’ Degreeville University. [Editor’s note: It was the University of Oregon.] And now that he’s a master he spends his time honing his abilities to levitate.

Watkins Artists Find A Show ‘Place’ at Global Mall

Posted on: June 29th, 2015 by Caroline Davis

In Place, a group exhibition organized and curated by Watkins Fine Art senior Mika Agari and Fine Art alumnae Alexine Rioux ( ‘14) and Kayla Saito (‘15), has found an unusual location for its July 10-12 showing: Storefront #122 of The Global Mall (formerly Hickory Hollow Mall) in Antioch, Tennessee.

Featuring work from 26 artists from across the U.S., In Place opens Friday, July 10, from 3:30 to 8:30 pm, and continues Saturday, July 11, 8 am to 8 pm, and Sunday, July 12, noon to 6 pm.

Chelsea Velaga

Chelsea Velagast, “sandast, baela (resist, repress),” sand installation and drawings

The objective of In Place is to open up a dialogue on contemporary art and contemporary consumer culture. Staging the exhibition in an entropic consumer space allows the work — which includes installation, drawings, video, animation, screen prints, mixed media, photography and sound recordings — to function outside of a traditional gallery context and lends to a discussion of art existing within a consumer society.

The Global Mall (5252 Hickory Hollow Parkway) was once a thriving consumer space formerly known Hickory Hollow Mall. Many of the previously occupied stores in the Global Mall are currently empty.  Storefront #122 is a former clothing store with over 3,000 feet of space.
