THE BUTCHER'S DAUGHTER on Gates of the West

Recently featured artist on GATES OF THE WEST

GATES OF THE WEST is a collaborative multimedia platform curating the artist’s virtual space. It brings us inside the creative lives of an evolving, curated group of contemporary, visual artists; we find exclusive selections of their artwork alongside inclusive looks into their personal and studio process.

"Carrie Mae Smith paints hermetic moments of material configuration, teeming with suggestion. The subject matter is undeniably mundane; consisting of cutlery, chinaware, dishtowels and cuts of raw beef arranged simply and set against a pure white background. Yet the work does not feel devoid of or detached from life. Instead, it feels deeply interwoven with it—rich with the potential for reflections concerning gender, class, materialism, and memory."

OPENING RECEPTION:  Friday, May 5th, 5-8 PM

Childbirth is a subject rarely contended with in contemporary art.  However, it is something that every woman artist (and woman) contends with personally.  This joint exhibition of Suzanne Schireson and Carrie Mae Smith will offer different perspectives on this important human event.  "In a time when women’s reproductive rights are under constant threat, we feel it is imperative to instigate conversations surrounding the experience and realities of Maternal Matters."

IMPLIED ACTION: Performance Through Object

Opening Reception friday, January 16, 2015  6-8 PM

Implied Action: Performance Through Object is an exhibition featuring four Visiting Assistant Professors in the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts at Indiana University.  Carissa Carmen, Mike Calway-Fagna, Carrie Mae Smith and Keith Allyn Spencer either make objects or use found items to convey the history of, presence of, or potential for performance.  These objects range from an article of clothing suggesting the act of wearing; to those that have a history of action, whether artistic or utilitarian; to objects that document and become evidence of past performance.  While these artists teach in various areas of Indiana University's studio art department, it is evident that process, object, and performance are integral to each artist's studio practice.
