features the work of Shelley Gipson and Kimberly Boyd Vickrey, associate
professors of art at ASU. Gipson will present two
new series of work. The first focuses on identity through family,
heritage, or choice. The second centers on collaborations with her
daughter, Lilia. Vickrey will exhibit a set of equestrian imagery in
both book and print form inspired by a recent visit to Spain. The
exhibition runs from Thursday, Oct. 14 through Friday, Nov. 19.
Shelley Gipson utilizes a wide range of printmaking processes in her
work but is particularly known for her use of intaglio and digital
techniques. The first of the two new bodies of work examines memory and
childhood, questioning romantic ideals by raising contradictory or
her second set of new work, Gipson collaborates with her daughter
and creates portraits that are “open, honest and free.” In the spring
of 2010, Kimberly Boyd Vickrey was invited to participate
in the First International Horse Photographers Seminar in Spain. This
workshop was held in the culturally rich region of Andalusia. This area,
north of the
Mediterranean Sea and the
Strait of Gibraltar. It is home to the famous
Andalusian stallions. These pure Spanish horses, along with flamenco
dancing, bullfighting, and the local people were a spectacular
photographic opportunity for Vickrey.
The close proximity to Morocco also provided
for her to photograph lavish
architecture. Vickrey's work in this exhibition was inspired by or created
during this visit to Spain.
"Este Caballo/Esta Familia”
will be on view from Friday-Friday, Oct. 15-Nov.19.
Bradbury Gallery hours are 12 noon-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and
