Paintings and drawings informed by political and social issues will be on display in the McGlothlin Center Gallery at Emory & Henry College from Aug. 15 to Sept. 10.

New York City-based artist James Cullinane, who produced the works, will also deliver an Artalk at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 22. The Artalk and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

Through his works, Cullinane expresses concerns about economic justice, women’s rights to health choices, gay and transgender rights, the environment, and the seemingly hopeless polarization of our political system.

His images depict geometry and pattern that are “built up patiently until the edifice begins to topple ... until process is built on top of process without concern for appearance of the thing,” the artist says. “Then, and only then, after lying in wait for weeks or months, can you hope to escape down the labyrinthine path that geometry has created.”

Cullinane received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Science in 1979. His work has been exhibited locally and nationally. In 2001 he was a resident at the Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wis. He was a participant in the 2002 Artists in the Marketplace 22, Emerging Artist Program, at The Bronx Museum in New York City. And in 2004 he was a resident at the Spaces World Artist Program in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cullinane’s images depict geometry and pattern that are “built up patiently until the edifice begins to topple … until process is built on top of process without concern for appearance of the thing. Then, and only then, after lying in wait for weeks or months, can you hope to escape down the labyrinthine path that geometry has created.”
