10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Kelly Hider Art Exhibit

Lincoln Memorial University's School of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences' Art Program would like to invite you to a reception for Kelly Hider's exhibition Dear Andrea at the LMU Center for the Arts on Thursday October 4, from 5-7pm. The artist will give a short gallery talk at 6pm. Light refreshments will provided. The exhibition and opening are free and open to the public.

The work in Dear Andrea is influenced both in form and composition by Byzantine and Proto-Renaissance iconographic imagery. These contemporary iterations use accessible materials and familiar subjects. The glitter, flocking, and rhinestones are modern craft-store-versions of punched gold-leaf; photography and photo-editing software used as a modern substitution for oil paint. Not unlike common historical depictions of biblical stories such as the Ascension, the Annunciation, and the Transfiguration, there are elements of the supernatural and the surreal. Hider's work employs a visual language of decoration and cancellation to support reoccurring themes of death and resurrection.

These new works by Hider manipulate an archive of slides taken in the 1950's and 60's. Hider is playing upon the viewer's own nostalgia associated with vintage images; remnants of forgotten domestic experience. The sparkling embellishments suggest human care, and by altering these found images, they are given new life and purpose. They evoke emotions ranging from melancholic to celebratory, leading viewers to contemplate their own personal family histories
