Three Way, an exhibtion by MFA Thesis candidates Dwayne Butcher, Jason Cole and Melinda Eckley is on view November 20 through December 8, 2008. An opening reception is Friday, November 28 from 6 to 9 pm, with a performance by Dwayne Butcher at 8 pm.
Located just north of Jackson, TN, Three Way is a city where the three artists share a unique kinship, linking the artists and their work. Dwayne Butcher examines the evolution of text in his work through time-based text paintings, poems which serve as the audio element of videos, and live performances. Jason Cole works in a series of video self-portraits exploring “self” in an ongoing personal exchange of experience. Melinda Eckley creates sculptural installations using surface design techniques and heirloom objects, investigating the language of object and space within a dialogue of feminist and philosophical traditions of thought.
The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
