Mark E. Brown: lullaby January 13 - February 6

An exhibition of art created during the pandemic by Mark E. Brown previously on display at the McGlothlin Center Art Gallery at Emory & Henry College through February 5th.

The exhibition presented themes of isolation, fear and “too much television,” according to the artist, who is an assistant professor of art at High Point University. A recorded Artalk associated with the exhibition will soon be available.

Brown’s art deals with the connections between objects, materials, ideologies and popular culture. He uses eclectic metaphorical symbols and imagers to comment on socio-political structures to promote thought, reaction and discourse. “My current sculptural works engage a nontraditional materiality employing media with histories of political and societal commodification, specifically elements that spoil, degrade, or are characteristically transient,” Brown said.
