Two New Art Exhibitions Kick Off Exciting Spring for GC Galleries
Submitted on February 1, 2021
The Cochneour and Wilson Galleries at Georgetown College welcome two new exhibitions to kick of the spring semester. The Wilson Gallery, which brings artwork from new and emerging artists to the college, will host the exhibition “A Howl Is Also a Prayer,” a group exhibition curated by John Brooks, Director of Quappi Projects in Louisville, Ky. The exhibition will run from January 26 to March 6 and will showcase work from a diverse group of artists.
Meanwhile, the Cochenour Gallery, which is located in Ensor Learning Resource Center, will feature a new exhibition by Lexington-based artist Adrienne Dixon titled “Spectrum.” Dixon’s exhibition will run from January 25 to February 27.
Dixon works in a range of media including watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting. She describes her own work as “founded in observational drawing,” but she says, “I process my ideas through a lens influenced by color theory and minimalism.” Her newest exhibition at Georgetown College is described as “a solo exhibition on ways we can approach color.”
“Adrienne Dixon, a current MFA candidate at the University of Cincinnati, asks her viewers to explore the way color initiates memory, and to consider how color perception is influenced by personal experiences, moods, and emotions,” said Director of Art Galleries and Curator of Collections Samantha Simpson. “Dixon encourages them to reflect on how the works make them feel more than anything else.”
“Spectrum” can be viewed in the Cochenour Gallery Monday through Saturday from 12:00 to 4:30 pm, and “A Howl Is Also a Prayer” can be viewed in the Wilson Gallery Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00 to 4:30 pm. The galleries are open to the public during these hours. Mask-wearing, along with proper social distancing, is required in the galleries at all times. Sanitizing stations are available in each gallery, and the number of visitors will be consistently monitored for safety.
