Solo Exhibition by Liz Shepherd Opens in Wilson Gallery January 16
Submitted on January 10, 2020
The first new exhibition of the spring semester in the Anne Wright Wilson Gallery will feature work by Boston-based artist Liz Shepherd. An opening reception for the solo exhibition will take place in the Wilson Gallery on Thursday, January 16th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Shepherd describes herself as “interested in imagery that springs from the unconscious mind.” Her work has been exhibited across the United States and internationally over the last fifteen years. Shepherd received her MFA in 2006 from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, which also awarded her the prestigious Travelling Fellowship in 2015.
Director of Art Galleries and Curator of Collections, Samantha Simpson, said “Liz Shepherd is a Boston-based sculptor and printmaker, whose new exhibition, Unsettled, features works where three-dimensional objects seem to inexplicably drop out of thin air and accumulate in heaps. TheUnsettled theme also refers to the artist’s ongoing concern for displaced people, as the issue of immigration continues to unsettle and divide our nation. Her work is in the collections of several international institutions, so we are very excited to have this new body of work here at Georgetown.”
The Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery brings artwork by new, emerging, or experimental artists from all over the world to Georgetown College. Located in the Fine Arts Building, the Wilson Gallery is not only an incredible exhibition space, but also allows visiting artists to interact with students during installation. The gallery is open Wednesday – Saturday 12:00 to 4:30 pm or by appointment.
