Current Exhibitions

Conversations with Chaos
Daryl Thetford
Hyndman Gallery
July 2 - September 24, 2016
Exhibit Opening | First Friday: July 1 | 5-8 PM

Daryl Thetford works in photography-based digital media and collage. His process begins by selecting a single, original photographic image followed by digital layering and combining of dozens of additional original photographs. It is a process, which takes an average of 40 hours. His resulting images range from culturally familiar individual pieces (bikes, cowboys, guitars, cityscapes) to more esoteric series based on humans’ inner struggle with modern society or the human sense of isolation in the noise of the modern world.

Thetford grew up in rural Tennessee and had an early interest in art. Encouraged to pursue a “practical” career, he spent 15 years working in the field if mental healthcare. When Thetford returned to art in 2001 he discovered that the psychology of behavior and emotion flowed neatly into his artistic process. The result is a compelling body of photo collage work that is informed by the richness of the psyche.

Thetford lives and works in Chattanooga, Tennessee and has been featured in exhibitions throughout the United States and has work in numerous corporate collections.

The Rebirth of How
Lucy Slivinski
LCA Promenade
July 2 - September 24, 2016
Exhibit Opening | First Friday: July 1 | 5-8 PM

Lucy Slivinski is a well-known installation artist from Chicago. Lucy uses a vast array of found and recycled materials in her work to create conceptual constructions that draw a connection between nature and discarded objects. She has been commissioned across the country to create public installations. Slivinkski will be wrapping the 6 trees along the promenade leading to LCA’s entry.

“I live in the collaborative space of ideas, conception and construction.  My process with materials is focused on found objects integrated into conceptual art making, inspiring me by all connections and contributions.  My work is the investigation of connectivity.  I am both humbled and amazed at the regenerative power of life.... Through recycling, we have blessed opportunities to reshape things that are perceived as decay, into replenished mysteries of beauty."

"I am a true believer and a seer of the creative possibility."                    
- Lucy Slivinski

Moment in Time
Ezra Siegel
Brincka-Cross & Susan Block Galleries
July 2 - October 1, 2016
Exhibit Opening | First Friday: July 1 | 5-8 PM

Ezra Siegel is a minimalist painter who uses plaster, graphite and as many as 30 thin washes to create tones, shapes and texture. His process allows him to create subtle and nuanced color and tone.

“My paintings are both empty and full, ordered but yet improvised. They suggest "Minimal Painting" but exhibit a human touch, with the hope that the viewer can experience beauty through imperfection and subtlety.”
