Artist Lecture with Gina Phillips
October 4, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree and open to the public
21c Bentonville is thrilled to welcome artist Gina Phillips for a special lecture on her body of work. Phillips’ work is currently being shown in Crystal Bridge’s State of the Art Exhibition. Her solo show A Thirsty Switch Still Quivers for Me is currently on view at 21c Louisville.
About the Artist: Born in Madison County, Kentucky, Gina Phillips is inspired by the imagery, narratives, and characters of both her native Kentucky and her current home in New Orleans. This five-year survey exhibition includes painting, sculpture, and her signature fabric and thread pieces, which Phillips creates in a wide range of scales and subject matter. Applying craft-based technique to a compelling exploration of both personal experience and art historical tradition, Phillips transforms portraiture, landscape, and assemblage art to offer an immersive, multi-media exploration of the people and places that shape this artist’s visionary practice.
