Alumna Katie Geha, Director of the Galleries at the Lamar Dodd School of Art (Georgia), invites Barry Stone (M.F.A. Studio Art, 2001) to present Hum. The exhibition is a multimedia project that places images from 80’s metal magazines, cloud pyramids, and broken Camaros alongside a 16-minute suite of music composed of the sounds of sampled roto-tom double-bass drums ripped asunder like a sinking galleon giving way to hazy balladry and carpeted walls of guitar.

The exhibition will be on display August 18 through September 3. An artist lecture and performance will take place on Wednesday, September 3.

Barry Stone lives in Austin, TX and is an Associate Professor of Photography in the School of Art and Design at Texas State University-San Marcos. He is a founding member of the photography collective Lakes Were Rivers and is represented by Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery (New York) and Art Palace (Houston). ​

Katie Geha (Ph.D. Art History, 2012) is a writer, curator, and art historian living in Athens, Georgia. She is the director of the Galleries at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. She received her M.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Katie Robinson Edwards publishes Midcentury Modern

Katie Robinson Edwards (Ph.D. Art History, 2006) recently published "MidcenturyModern Art in Texas" through University of Texas Press.

In this book:

Presenting new research and artwork that has never before been published, Katie Robinson Edwards examines the contributions of many modernist painters and sculptors in Texas, with an emphasis on the era’s most abstract and compelling artists. Edwards looks first at the Dallas Nine and the 1936 Texas Centennial, which offered local artists a chance to take stock of who they were and where they stood within the national artistic setting. She then traces the modernist impulse through various manifestations, including the foundations of early Texas modernism in Houston; early practitioners of abstraction and non-objectivity; the Fort Worth Circle; artists at the University of Texas at Austin; Houston artists in the 1950s; sculpture in and around an influential Fort Worth studio; and, to see how some Texas artists fared on a national scale, the Museum of Modern Art’s “Americans” exhibitions.
