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.
