The Gaddis Geeslin Gallery in the Art Department at Sam Houston State University will be opening the exhibit “Faculty Spotlight” featuring Buster Graybill, Jasmyne Graybill, and Summer Zickefoose. It will run September 2-19 in the SHSU Art Gallery. Hours are Monday-Friday from 12-5p.m. and the opening reception is on Wednesday, September 3 from 5-7 p.m. The showing features the various talents of established and accomplished artists.
Buster Graybill currently lives in Huntsville and was awarded a fellowship to attend an artist residency at The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2007. He is pasionate about the intricate themes his art explores: “I harvest memories, stories, language, and objects from the rich cultural geography of rural America and use it as creative fuel.”
Jasmyne Graybill resides in Huntsville and has exhibited throughout Texas, including solo galleries at Cactus Bra and the UTSA Satellite Space in San Antonio. Her paintings, sculptures and installations attempt to explore the complex relationships that arise between human beings and nature. Buster and Jasmyne Graybill will be teaching the new W.A.S.H. program for the Department of Art at Sam Houston State University.
Summer Zickefoose recently completed a tour of the Midwest in Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Indiana before landing in Huntsville. Her multimedia artwork is deeply influenced by Midwestern and rural American culture and landscape in an attempt to reveal the archeological information within common materials and sites, while transforming the ordinary into the iconic Zickefoose, who will be teaching ceramics and three-dimensional arts at SHSU, previously had art shown at galleries in three states.
