Connections: Hoss Haley, George Peterson and Tom Shields

Connections: Haley, Peterson and Shields Collage

December 3, 2017 – March 25, 2018

Grisham Gallery

The Huntsville Museum of Art is pleased to present the fifth installment of its new Connections exhibition series focused on contemporary artists linked in terms of subject matter and sensibility. Connections: Hoss Haley | George Peterson | Tom Shields showcases three artists from Western North Carolina who recycle and transform discarded materials into stunning works of art.  Hoss Haley crumples and reassembles sheets of metal stripped from old appliances into stunning modernist forms and is regionally acclaimed for his striking works in steel, concrete and bronze.  Self-taught artist, George Peterson, carves and paints scrapped skateboard decks, changing them into primitive, handcrafted wall artifacts. Tom Shields has been working with wood for nearly twenty years.  He explores furniture as a subject rather than an object, melding old and broken chairs and tables into complex visual forms with potent narrative potential.

Join the artists for a thought-provoking gallery walk on Sunday, December 3, and learn more about the fascinating connections in their works.
