David B. Smith Gallery is pleased to present Joel Swanson’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, Sticks & Stones. This exhibition comes during a tumultuous sociopolitical time. Inspired by current events, Sticks & Stones addresses language as a political act. Using words, phrases, and symbols, this exhibition makes material the typically intangible, but very real, use of language by public figures in today’s politics and journalism.
Swanson will be in attendance at the opening, Friday, August 18th.
Please join us for an artist talk and gallery walk-through, beginning at 6:30pm.
