After its showing at Tarleton State University in the fall of 2013, Family as the Vernacular is now being exhibited at the Univeristy of Montevallo in Montevallo, Alabama. The exhibit is curated by and exhibits the works of Margaret Hiden, Libby Rowe and H. Jennings Sheffield.
Through their alternative structures, Margaret Hiden, Libby Rowe and H. Jennings Sheffield utilize vernacular imagery to convey an understanding of iconic experiences. These familiar encounters and interactions provoke viewers to make references to their own memories and experiences that are already a part of a culturally collective consciousness.
There will be an artist talk to discuss the collaboration on Wednesday May 28, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. in the Bloch Hall Gallery at the University of Montevallo. The exhibit is scheduled to travel to the Dallas Public Library in 2015.
