Susan Moore's "Sub Rosa" exhibition on view October 4 to 26, 2019

Author: Zachary Vickers

Susan Moore, professor of Painting at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, has an exhibition, Sub Rosa, on view at Gross McCleaf Gallery from October 4 to 26, 2019, where she explores the possibilities available when a portrait and a painting reconcile.  "One constant in my work has been the exploration of the unique tensions that the portrait reveals about the self and the assertion of individuality in relation to the quietness of anonymity," said Moore. "Each work seems to develop its own persona, growing out of elements of the subject and myself no doubt, but also contributions from each viewer. The title of my show, 'Sub Rosa' means in secret or under the surface and refers to what you can't see when looking at a person."  Read More

Amze Emmons, associate professor and program head of Printmaking at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, recently had a mid-career, solo exhibition entitled Amze Emmons: Pattern Drift at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland from August 2 to October 2, 2019. The exhibition featured a 15-year survey of Emmons’s printed work, selected drawings and artistic exploration.  “For the past several years I have actively noticed certain kinds of visual phenomena such as portable and ephemeral building structures, improvised street furniture, and informal sites of exchange that tell a story of local agency, adaptation, and community," said Emmons. "When I travel in other cities around the US and abroad, I inevitably discover parallel phenomena.” Read More
