Professor Robert Jessup featured at The MAC

5/10/14 – 6/28/14

Robert JessupSelections – New Work: 2013-2014

An opening reception will be held Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary, located at 3120 McKinney Avenue, in the Uptown District of Dallas.

Exhibitions will be on view through June 28, 2014.

The MAC welcomes Robert Jessup for a solo exhibition in the New Works Space this summer. Selections – New Work: 2013-2014 includes selected paintings from the past year, which explore his journey into a “free play of form”. The intuitive, non-representational form making gives his paintings an open ended resolution, keeping singularity in meaning out of his works. Having identity without being identifiable, the paintings are free to speak for themselves through an abstract visual narrative.

For more information, please go to the MAC website.

Opening Reception
Saturday, February 22

February 22 - March 22, 2014

These pictures are the result of intuitive, non-representational form-making interacting with the mental forces that want to imagistically bind visual elements together. I have been trying to invent configurations that stop just short of representation, configurations that have identity without being identifiable. I have wanted there to be the feel of drama and the sense of narrative without the presence of recognizable images or symbols. Neither abstract nor figurative but still imbued with the current of a story. -Robert Jessup

OCULAR: An exhibition featuring Rachel Black

Installation will be available through January 31, 2014.
Rachel Black


Eagle Exhibit Hall, EESAT Bldg, through January 31

"The works presented in Ocular began with a shoebox. The contents were a career’s worth of accumulated slides which once belonged to an ophthalmologist. I continue to be inspired and drawn to this collection of imagery as a starting point for my artwork. The originals are intriguing as artifacts themselves but translating the microscopic images onto canvas and paper is a process which brings to light new ways of seeing them."
