Artists’ interpretations of mythology and the kaleidoscope are on view March 9 to April 10, 2015, at Southside Gallery in Oxford.  Two group shows, Kaleidoscope and Mythos, feature recent work by graduating University of Mississippi MFA students. I’ll first share some installation views of Kaleidoscope, with artwork by Terry LynnStacey Rathert, Elise Robbins, and Preston Tolbert. Images from Mythos will follow in a later post.

“Stacey Rathert’s allegorical ideas on the kaleidoscope, which are deeply rooted in her childhood, are physically thrilling as she displays intricate patterns of images that juxtapose what is expected and what is true about herself.” -Southside Gallery.

“Terry Lynn explores personal and social identity in his artwork, incorporating other media into his paintings that are as diverse as the undulating shapes at the end of the kaleidoscope.” -Southside Gallery. Above and below, Terry Lynn, Roots. mixed mediums installation. Copyright (c) the artist.
