Russian Icon by Treib

The paintings that are being exhibited are painted on the floor and are scaled in relation to the artist’s height. Treib is searching for an image that is not from a singular viewpoint, but includes and entertains the inconsistencies inherent in vision itself. For example, the type of disjuncture that is experienced everyday, but is smoothed over and made imperceptible through habit, which is the act of synthesizing the separate views from both eyes. The paintings are rooted in the physical disjuncture that is part of the body.

Patricia Treib received an MFA from Columbia University in 2006. Her works have recently been exhibited at Wallspace in New York and Favorite Goods in Los Angeles. Treib had her first New York exhibition at John Connelly Presents and also had a solo show with Golden Gallery in Chicago. She has had residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation. Treib lives and works in New York.

The Artist-in-Residence Program in Painting and Drawing was initiated in 1982, and is a major part of the curriculum and community in Painting and Drawing. The AIR demonstrate the relevance and influence of their ideas with their respected and growing exhibition record and with their ability to verbally connect the ideas central to their work to those extant in both the art world and the School of Art at the University of Tennessee. The AIR adds to the vitality and vibrancy of that discourse among faculty and students of the School of Art.

“FREE: A Sculpture Show” at Gallery 1010

On September 7, students from the Sculpture area hosted a show at Gallery 1010. The artists whose work was showcased included Jessica Brooke Anderson, April Bachtel, Jonathan Broyles, G.M.Bundy, Sarah Campbell, Jenny Chin, Caroline Hatfield, Alexandra Kirtley, Kevin Varney, and Dean Yasko.


According to the show statement, it is “an exhibition that presents contemporary work made by UT undergraduate and graduate students, FREE art celebrates the power of transformation in everyday items, found objects, and recycled materials. The ideas behind these works may be diverse, but they are united by their innovative use of everyday items. These artists manipulate and repurpose common materials and by doing so, create an opportunity for dialogue between the audience and the perception, use, and reclamation of these materials. Things that might be considered trash can in fact become art, and vehicles for expression and creativity.”
