Edwards presents The Human Element, which investigates the ideas of taxonomy and systems that categorize a hierarchy between humans and animals. The content of this investigation centers on the imagined and mythological creature as a manifestation of an altered or “outside” the system species. Edwards employs paintings, toys dipped in plaster, sculpey, tin foil, and enamel.
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.
