Artists Vadis Turner & Richard Feaster will have a show in the Tibbott Center Gallery this month, with an opening reception Thursday, April 7, 5:00–7:00.
University School of Nashville’s Tibbott Center Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Nashville artists Vadis Turner and Richard Feaster. Sharing the language of abstraction between them, this exhibit offers viewers the opportunity to consider both artists' practices as they relate to one another in nuanced ways. Featuring hand-dyed and recycled layers of ribbon, clothing and bedding, Turner’s works transform the materials of traditional women’s work into radiant hybrids of the utilitarian and the abstract that are equal parts art and heirloom. Feaster’s paintings and works on paper pursue abstraction as an intimately coded language of mark-making and editing, producing works that invite the consideration of process and materiality in painting as a site for new modes of visual discovery.
Vadis Turner has exhibited across the US and abroad including the Brooklyn Museum, National Gallery in Prague, Andy Warhol Museum, Bass Art Museum, Hunter Museum of American Art, Islip Art Museum, National Museum of Trinidad and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, 21C Museum, Tennessee State Museum, Kentucky Arts and Crafts Museum and the Egon Schiele Art Centrum. In 2013 she was an Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design and Materials for the Arts in New York. In 2014 she was the Artist in Residence at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. Turner was born in Nashville, Tennessee. She received her BFA and MFA from Boston University. www.vadisturner.com
