Karen Ann Myers

October 2 - December 13, 2013

“Karen Ann Myers is a skilled painter who has created an impressive body of work that explores what it means to be a young woman, circa 2012. Her slim female figures are usually scantily clad, but they always look a little ill at ease, like they’re not quite at home in their own bodies. They sit or lie on their beds, or on the floor, both self-protective and flaunting – the epitome of the young woman whose bedroom is a cozy sanctum of extravagant surfaces (floral duvets, striped sheets, expensive wallpaper). Lost in their own little worlds – imagining future sexual conquests? – these virginal lovelies are nearly consumed by the glorious patterns and prints that surround them.”  - Pamela Wall, Curator of Exhibitions, Gibbes Museum of Art.

Karen Ann Myers is an artist, educator and curator. She received an MFA in Painting from Boston University and a BFA in Studio Art from Michigan State University. Myers has exhibited extensively throughout the country. Her paintings and works on paper exist nationally and internationally in private collections and have most recently been exhibited at LUIS DE JESUS gallery in Los Angeles, CA, Robert Steele Gallery in NY, NY, at the Commonwealth Gallery in Boston, MA, the Katzen Arts Center in Washington, DC, the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA and the visual Arts Gallery, University of Alabama, Birmingham, AK.

Most recently, Myers was nominated to participate in the 2011 South Carolina Biennial at 701 Center for Contemporary Art. This exhibition is the first survey of contemporary South Carolina art since the fifth and last South Carolina Triennial in 2004. The exhibition presented 24 artists from South Carolina currently producing some of the most exciting contemporary art in the state.

Derek Cracco: From Here To There

September 25 - December 13, 2013

These works use collaged ephemera, such as romance novels, fifties pin ups, and men’s health magazines to explore society’s fantasies and fascination with romance. The imagery challenges the viewer to consider the ideals promoted by these pulp publications, and to compare them with the realities of their own lives and the concepts of romantic love.

I see this as an opportunity to explore diverse avenues within my aesthetics. As Maslow's hierarchy of needs suggests, romantic love is frivolous, a flight of fancy. My visual interrogation of Maslow’s concept allows me the freedom to explore and create more playful compositional structures. At the same time, I remain focused on my investigations of masculine and feminine archetypes, and the roles these idealized men and women play within our fantasies.

Derek Cracco is Associate Professor of printmaking and computer graphics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He received an MFA from Syracuse University in 1999 and BFA degree from Louisiana State University in 1996.
Cracco has participated in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally including Digital Printmaking Now at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in NY, curated by Marilyn Kushner, the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts Juried Annual, Love Ladies, New Jersey curated by Darsie Alexander, Assistant Curator Museum of Modern Art, and Printwork 99, Barrett Art Center, Poughkeepsie, NY, juried by Claire Bell, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Guggenheim Museum, NY.

Cracco has been recognized for his innovative combination of traditional printmaking processes and computer graphics. His work has been purchased by several museums and by many private collections throughout the country and abroad.
