Exhibition: The END!

Curated by Ashlee Mays.
Opening reception: April 3, 6-9pm


It is getting so very hot outside. The power has been out for about a week now... and there is something oozing up from the sewer vents. The END! brought to you by Mary Climes, Murry Klumps, Mark Klines, Marie Slimes, and their friends pick it up from here:
Through the McClung's Visions of the End, we see a Medieval fantasy of the Apocalypse that reminds us of how long we have been dreaming of the final straw. Gallery 1010 follows this through with a contemporary response to our last days on this planet. Fields of corn and porn encapsulate our final narrative from the artist, printmaker, and cartoonist Mary Climes.

Gallery 1010 is Tennessee's only student run gallery, providing a rare experience for students to have full control over their exhibitions. Climes is a current graduate student in the nationally ranked printmaking program here at the University of Tennessee and the show is curated by the director of Gallery 1010, Ashlee Mays, who is also a UTK graduate student. As an additional treat, The END! will also feature a curated portfolio exchange from contemporary artists across the country. This portfolio plays off of early devotional prints, 14-15th century European woodblocks that give both a snapshot of public and private matters of devotion. 

Presented in conjunction with the McClung Museum's temporary exhibition, Visions of the End, on view from January 31 - May 10, 2020. Learn More.

Please note that this exhibition features work with adult themes, and discretion is advised.
