LaNia Sproles

Fine Arts Gallery
Through Apr 22

New works by Alyssa Krause, Daniel McCullough, and LaNia Sproles. Sproles's large cutout mixed media figurative collages reference philosophies of self-perception, queer and feminist theories, and inherent racial dogmas. Krause’s paintings question the parameters of perception. McCullough investigates the atmosphere of place through chance-based approaches to photography.

Through Apr 22, 2021

A collection of sculptural objects including both her highly-acclaimed, wheel-thrown ceramic figures and her recent fabric sculpture. Grimm’s work pairs an often-whimsical subject matter steeped in folklore, referencing fairytales, fables, and princesses with impressive feats of technical virtuosity and physical scale.
