False Face: An Art Show About Masked Identities

Please join us Thursday, October 27th between 6:00 and 9:00 PM for our show opening.  There will be food and a reception at the Fincher Visual Arts Center.  The show features seven artists working in a variety of mediums exploring the concept of disguised identity or ‘false faces’.  The show will run from October 27 to November 17.

About the Artists: William Haun, a photographer from West Africa, is documenting the little known tribal “Doorudoo” tradition where masked men participate in a dance off.  Talaina Fisher is a digital artist from Arizona who uses digital manipulation to create otherworldly and atmospheric images.  Brett Mullinix, Art Dept. Chair at Reinhardt University, will be presenting recent collage works that explore notions of spatial perception and memory that often use historical imagery and humor in order to challenge notions of content. Jym Davis, also a Professor at Reinhardt, is presenting hand-made Paper-mache masks and modeled photographs from his 2016 National Park Artist-In-Residency in Arizona. Katie Rita is a hand-poke tattoo artist from Olympia, Washington who works in large scale mural and painting.  Em Harris is a ceramicist who is displaying a series of beautiful glazed masks.  Tyler Gill is a photographer and Reinhardt Instructor who specializes in traditional darkroom artwork.
