Past Contemporary Exhibitions
by Patrick Wack
October 1st - 31st 2022
The monograph Dust gathers four years of work by French documentary photographer Patrick Wack shot in the areas of Central Asia known as East Turkistan or Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region under the current Chinese administration. This body of work captures a visual narrative of the region and is a testimony to its abrupt descent into an Orwellian dystopia.
A Woman Named Vera
by Tiffany Sutton
October 1st - 31st 2022
“I create narratives about all women regardless of their ethnicity, age, and body type. Creating these images is an act of love for myself and my female friends,” says Sutton. This exhibition explores the many complexities of her mother, in the most naturalistic form, through the captured interactions with her family and the spaces they inhabit.
Here & Now
December 11, 2022 - February 12, 2023
We asked artists to take stock of their life and present the findings through exhibition. The artists responded to these questions in their artwork: "The past few years have been tumultuous, how has that affected you? What will the future hold?" All art was made in 2021 and 2022.

by Bret Price
September 2021 - September 2022
Leverage by Bret Price features 10 pieces of monumental sculpture by the artist. The works in the exhibition represent a retrospective of Price's monumental work in the medium of steel sculpture from 1999 – 2020. As a contemporary, multidisciplinary sculptor, one of Bret Price's main objectives is to convey a sense of unexpected movement and balance while confronting the challenges of the materials he uses. The artist bends and twists steel, manipulating the material to create sculptures that remind the viewer that our preconceptions can be limiting.

Mid-South Sculpture Alliance
September 13th – October 23rd, 2021
This group exhibition of artwork by the Board and members of the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance celebrates an often-undervalued part of the art making process – planning and prototyping. Artworks included in this exhibition range from small and medium sized maquettes, made in preparation of the completion of monumental sculptures, to reference photos taken by exhibiting artists, to 5-minute preparatory sketches that birthed infinitely more complex iterations of projects.
An odyssey of creative work that includes painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, performance, historical objects, puppetry, and more, this exhibition details The 7th Hole Religion of Crawtowne and the celestial event that precipitated the creation of this religion and its artifacts.
