Artists to Watch Winter 2018

Don’t miss out on meeting these artists this winter:

TOM STANLEY

Tom Stanley draws with paint. His work is graphic, and he uses a limited palette of black, white and red, which he calls “the most useful colors.” During his residency at the Gibbes Museum of Art, Stanley will draw on themes from the folk art exhibition, A Shared Legacy, on view at the museum and will create a new series of works reinforcing the concept of a “conversation” that occurs between an artist’s knowledge, eyes, and hands.

JO HAY

In collaboration with the New Gallery of Modern Art in Charlotte, NC, the Miller Gallery hosts “Fire&Grace,” an all-star show of internationally recognized artists featuring Jo Hay, Hunt Slonem, and Shepard Fairey. New works by British-American artist Hay include pieces from her recent series “Persisters,” depicting societal influencers like Rachael Maddow and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“‘Persisters’ is an ongoing series of portrait paintings of outstanding women who have made an impression with their tenacious resolve to succeed in their pursuit of justice. I chose Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second female justice of the US Supreme Court, for her lifelong support of gender equality and equal rights coupled with her bravery in speaking out when fearing the country is in danger,” says Hay. Hay was also recently featured in “Queer and Now” at theTate of London.
