Works by Assistant Professor of Sculpture Stacey Holloway, MFA, in the UAB Department of Art and Art History, will be highlighted in the SECAC Artist’s Fellowship exhibition at UAB’s AEIVA.
From Holloway: “Not to be Otherwise focuses on interspecies bonds and considers universal experiences of alienation, isolation, and longing. In a surreal, immersive installation featuring a life-size bison and scores of porcelain rabbits, squirrels, birds and bees patterned with Blue Willow floral and arabesque patterns, the exhibition takes a topsy-turvy turn on the trope of the bull in a china shop.”
The SECAC Fellowship was established in 1981 to support member artists and to encourage individual creative growth‚ the development of new ideas for exhibitions and creative projects. A committee selects the recipient, who is awarded $5,000. Holloway won the 2017 award, which provided her with the opportunity to work with new materials and processes, and on a larger scale.
