SCCC to showcase Contemporary Artist

in Fine Arts, News, Performing Arts, Performing Arts Box, Performing Arts Spotlight

Sussex County Community College’s Art Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of contemporary art by Autumn T. Thomas.  The ‘Suite of Subjective Juncture’ exhibit will be on display from September 11 through October 13. An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, September 22 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Art Gallery.

Autumn creates new forms and imagery through the marriage of two contrasting materials; handmade paper and forged metals. The materials become a metaphor for the Black body, speaking to vulnerability and tenacity, respectively. Gallery Coordinator, Kulvinder Kaur Dhew, says, “in her work, the artist attempts to challenge common perceptions and generate a dialogue in order to challenge misconceptions that can lead to racial bias.” Her prints, artists’ books, and installations reference trompe l’oeil – a French term meaning “deceive the eye”, under the auspices of finding a common entry point into the difficult conversation about race relations.

Autumn T. Thomas (b. 1978, Mansfield, OH), lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. She creates artist’s books and interdisciplinary prints that take a critical view of cultural, social, and political issues. She is currently a resident Artist Fellow at Peter’s Valley School of Craft in Layton, New Jersey. A veteran of the US Air Force, Autumn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a recent graduate from The University of the Arts’ Book Arts + Printmaking Master of Fine Art Program in Philadelphia.

The Art Gallery at Sussex County Community College is open to the community and free of charge, all are welcome.
