JASON BROWN: FOOTHILLS
Catron Gallery (Walters State Community College) / 500 S. Davy Crockett, Morristown, TN January 18 - March 30th
Jason Brown is an associate professor of Art at the University of TN, Knoxville. His work explores the impact that extractive industries such as mining, oil and gas have on the ecosystems and watersheds of Appalachian landscapes. Coal mining and mountaintop removal are especially compelling subjects for his sculptures and installations, which challenge viewers to engage in a civic dialogue about individuality, community and place.
