EVANSTON ART CENTER ANNOUNCES A NEW EXHIBITION, “EXPERIMENTAL”, FEATURING WORKS BY DAVID ANTHONY GEARY.
The Evanston Art Center (EAC) is proud to present a new exhibition, “Experimental”, featuring works by David Anthony Geary.
“Inspired by culture, beauty, science, mythology and experience,” Geary writes, “my work is simultaneously engaged in the now, then and still to come. Consistently pushing, searching and discovering the new while at the same time holding on to the old. It’s not just an aspect of my work but an aspect of me that finds its way into the things I create. The nuance of the creative experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of my process. Each piece is a dance between intention and intuition, a process of exchange, discovery and experimentation informed as much by the moments of their creation as the research that proceeds them. The portrait specifically serves to explore the nuance of identity.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
David Anthony Geary is a transdisciplinary artist working in a variety of mediums. His visual training took place in New Orleans, LA at Xavier University. He remained in this uniquely attractive city to absorb as much of its great culture and heritage as he could. Inspired by beauty. Culture and life experiences fill his work along with the discovery of newness. Constantly pushing, searching and discovering the new while at the same time holding on to the old. It’s not just an aspect of Geary’s art but an aspect of his character that finds its way into the art. Communicating his perspective of the world around him through a visual language, he became fluent in many dialects of visual art. Building a career as an artist, an educator, as well as a family in New Orleans, has greatly influenced his work both visually and conceptually. His work incorporates painting, printmaking, collage, assemblage, sculpture or photography. The nuance of the human experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of his process.
“Experimental” will be on display in the Evanston Art Center’s Main Second Floor Gallery from January 7 – February 12, 2023, with an opening reception on Sunday, January 8, from 1-4pm. The opening reception for “Better Angels”, an exhibition featuring works by Adria Arch, will also take place at this time. The reception will feature an artist talk with Adria Arch from 2:30-3:00pm and an artist talk with David Anthony Geary from 3:10-3:40pm. The exhibition, opening reception and artist talks are free and open to the public.
