A Long Road Back

The Wedding Dance, 2014

The Wedding Dance, 2014

 

August 21–December 8, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018, 6–8:00 p.m.
Evening with the Artist: Thursday, November 8, 2018, 6:00 p.m.

George Tobolowsky’s series of metal sculptures, A Long Road Back, range from abstract winding forms to representational subjects. The artist’s incorporation of bold colors and found metal scraps create delightfully unexpected outcomes that pay tribute to modernist sculpture. Tobolowsky’s works will be on display inside and around the Museum, as well as throughout Oxford and the UM campus.

The University of Mississippi Museum would like to thank Earl Dismuke for his assistance in securing site locations and installations of these outdoor works.

Map and key to sculpture locations are below or can be downloaded as a pdf here.

Where the roots rise, in a forest full of ecru bone, the woman of the woods awakes to a world of myth and ruination.


Where the Roots rise, a series of tea-stained cyanotypes, serves as a reminder that the gap between nature and ourselves is smaller than we acknowledge. Decay runs rampant—seasons change—nature lies in await to stake its claim.

Jaime Aelavanthara’s work articulates humankind’s capacity to decay as a marker of our identity. Set in the swamps and woods of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida, natural places where one encounters life and death, growth and decay, the series chronicles the intimate relationship of a feral woman and her surrounding nonhuman environment. The woman collects the bones, branches, and flora and treads with the animals, both dead and living. Recognizing the deaths of other creatures, this woman observes in death, she, too, will be repurposed and consumed by the earth.

The cyanotype process shifts focus from potentially colorful landscapes and figures to patterns, textures, and the relationships of forms within the images. Tea-staining the prints dulls the blue and adds warmth. Printing on Japanese Kitakata paper, which is prone to ripping, tearing, and wrinkling, reflects the deterioration of nature and gives the prints a feeling of fragility. Untamed ultimately reflects upon the forms, the impermanence, and the interconnectedness of natural life.

Art-Crawl

Meet Zorro

Spring 2017, the University of Mississippi Museum was added as a featured point along the Yokna Sculpture Trail. The first outdoor sculpture program of its kind in North Mississippi features a rotating exhibit of 18 large-scale sculptures by locally, regionally and nationally renowned exhibiting artists. The trail is a collaboration between the City of Oxford, The University of Mississippi, and the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council. 

Meet Sculptor Jeffie Brewer from Nacogdoches, Texas

We are given a brief amount of time together. As an artist, I consider it a gift to be able to share my vision and experience. Sometimes it’s serious, sometimes it’s thoughtful and a lot of the time it’s just silly. The shared experience of existing, living, loving, thinking… seeing beauty, knowing fear, feeling passion, and just being is further magnified through art – creating, discussing, collaborating, learning and teaching. I have been privileged to have great mentors, teachers and friends; to continue to share this with a new generation of artists, students and viewers is fantastic.
