Department of Art Features Exhibit by Ben Fox-McCord Opening September 22 in Space 204 Gallery

meandersThe Department of Art announces the September 22 opening of Meanders, an exhibition of Ben Fox-McCord’s work that will be on display in Space 204 through October 26.

Fox-McCord’s work is produced in a variety of ways, but drawing has always been at the core of his practice. The act of drawing, the visual reproduction and abstraction of real-life forms onto a two-dimensional plane, is a distinctly human endeavor and is “one of the few ways that describes our interaction with and perception of the world around us, with any measure of honesty,” he said.

Fox-McCord received his undergraduate degree in printmaking from the University of Tennessee/Knoxville and his MFA in printmaking from Tulane University.

A closing reception for the artist will be held on Wednesday, October 26, from 4 to 6 pm. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, and all exhibits in Space 204 are free and open to the public. The gallery is housed on the second floor of the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center, 25th Avenue South at Garland Avenue, on the Vanderbilt campus.
