United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery

Exhibit Details

The idea of an aesthetic fusion of popular culture with Appalachian vernacular in many ways invites a calamity of principles and taste. Brian Clinebell, Peter Morgan, and Jessica Walker grew up in Abingdon at the end of twentieth century with color televisions and new-media saturation yet surrounded by the tchotchkes and Americana that are favored in the mountains of Appalachia. The work in this exhibition will focus on art-making as a place for humor and social critique as well as present alternative applications of animation and graphic imagery. Collectively the work will offer an unexpected narrative about what it means to be from this unique region and new generation of artists.
