Art Exhibition: Just Kidding
Jan 22 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Milliken Art Gallery

Converse art exhibitionGeorgia-based Printmaker Chadwick Tolley creates works that examine his own experiences. On view in January in the Milliken Art Gallery, a collection of prints and collages each of which require individual study will be featured in Just Kidding. The series uses visual symbols to express political and social angst, creating art that is raw, unfiltered and ambiguous enough for individual interpretation. Upon closer inspection, one can see the layers of images, patterns, forms and colors that lose their visual identity and merge together to invent something completely different. Whereas each work appears thought-out, Tolley does not over-plan his subject-matter leaving room for spontaneity during each step of the process.

Born in Missoula, MT, Tolley received his BFA in Printmaking from the University of Utah and his MFA in Printmaking from the University of Oregon. He currently teaches Printmaking and Drawing at Augusta University in Augusta, GA. Tolley has exhibited widely across the United States and has won various awards for his work including a Purchase Award in the Atlanta Print Biennial, a Purchase Prize in the “Ink and Clay” exhibit in Pomona, CA, the C.G. Metals Purchase Prize from the Boston Print Biennial and a Best in Show award from the Oso Bay North American Printmaking Exhibition. His work is included in several public collections in the United States, the Guandong Museum of Art in China, and the Jordanian National Gallery of Art in Amman, Jordan. Tolley is represented by Arts Company Gallery in Nashville, TN.

Just Kidding will run from January 7-28, 2021. Tolley will present an online discussion and Gallery Talk in January.

The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sundays from 2-5 pm, Monday through Friday from 9 am-5 pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
