Furman University in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Elizabeth Mead
Furman University in Greenville, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Agglomerated Spaces, featuring a collection of sculpture and drawings by College of William and Mary sculpture professor Elizabeth Mead. The exhibition will be on view in the Thompson Art Gallery through Feb. 20, 2009.
The exhibit is a collection that features a series of sculptures of constellations mounted on the wall. There are also freestanding sculptures that represent birds in various stages of abstraction, and several drawings that also represent bird-like animals using ink, charcoal, and graphite on pastel paper. The entire exhibit is a conglomeration of ideas developed from Mead's various experiences.
"In my work I attempt to register spatial and material conceptions within the constantly changing and evolving present," Mead said. "These propositions (sculpture) grab hold if only for a moment, to make concrete that which in one sense has already left us."
Mead has been teaching at the College of William and Mary since 2006. She has exhibited her work in venues across the United States, Europe and Asia; including recent exhibitions at Seldon Gallery, Norfolk, VA, Casa Das Artes De Tavira, Tavira, Portugal, Slade Gallery, London, England, and the Lewis Art Gallery, Jackson, MS.
Awards, Fellowships and artist's residencies include The Technology Integration Program Fellowship, The Prairie Center of the Arts Residency in Illinois, The Jentel Artist Residency in Wyoming, The Creative Artist Fellowship residency in Japan, and The Sculpture Space Residency in New York. She has also served as professor or visiting lecturer at California College of the Arts, Portland State University, University of Chicago, and Saint Vincent College.
