Connections: Diane Fox and Beauvais Lyons

Grisham Gallery
June 27 – September 27, 2015

This new series is focused on regional contemporary artists with shared sensibilities. Featured are two critically acclaimed artists from Knoxville, Tennessee, whose lithographs and photographs use animals as the key protagonists in their works. Fox’s black and white and color photographs document the artificial displays and stuffed animal specimens found in natural history museums worldwide, emphasizing their removal from the natural world. Lyons (her husband) creates exquisitely crafted lithographs that parody the pedantic scientific prints of the nineteenth century and hint at new truths. Organized by HMA.
