Dunbar Hall show by Rodrecas Davis, new to the Grambling art faculty; reception Tues, Sept 25, 4 pm
Artist Rodrecas “Drék” (pronounced Dreek) Davis’ introduction to the Grambling State University community will take place in the Dunbar Hall Art Gallery in a Sept show, says Davis. A new faculty member in the Art Department, Davis will be presenting an exhibition of his mixed media and assemblage works that deal with the intersection of pop culture, history, politics, and religion.
Davis is a 2006 graduate of the University of Georgia Fine Arts program - with an emphasis in drawing and painting. Mr. Davis sometimes pulls from his journalism and musical experience as a compliment to his visual artwork.
…and a few words will be on display from September 17- October 4 in the Dunbar Hall Art Gallery.
Reception: Tues, Sept 25, from 4 - 6 pm.
It has been a while since an artist has landed on the sptBog digital doorstep as has Drek. Full range of online photos of his work, wicked sense of humor (see above and the art on that flickr site), adept at communications - he wrote for AthensOnLine - musician and future curator. And aware that Shreveport needs to communicate with Grambling.
