Artist's Lecture - free and open to public

Patrick DeGuira
Wednesday, Jan 20, 5:30pm
Fine Arts Center, Room 356

DeGuira uses a variety of media including, photography, text, sculpture and works on paper to create re-envisioned family histories and dark comedies.  Fusing a strong sense of craft and conceptual approaches, his process is both haunting and fascinating presenting relics from his mental excavation.

Deguira was the recent juror for the UTC student exhibition.  He has worked for several museums and currently runs his own business in art handling, archiving and installation.

He has had solo exhibitions at Medicine Factory (Memphis), Fredric Snitzer Gallery (Miami), Zeitgeist Gallery (Nashville), Second Floor Contemporary (Memphis), and Cheekwood Museum of Art (Nashville).  His work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions at Hunter Museum of Art (Chattanooga), Brooks Museum (Memphis), The Frist Center for the Visual Arts (Nashville), Mason Murer Fine Art (Atlanta), Steel Pond Gallery (Portland) and Honey Space (NYC).
His work has been featured in articles from Art Papers, Art Daily, Nashville Scene, and Number Magazine.
