Bryce Speed Art Exhibit Opens
Release Date: January 06, 2017
A solo art exhibit, “Gulfs” by Bryce Speed, opens Monday (Jan. 9) in the
Moon Gallery at Berry College and will run through Feb. 2.
consists of framed works on paper that combine painting and drawing to create a
“floating dreamscape world”. In this world, Speed depicts calamities as natural
forces like water, wind and fire that threaten built environments using subdue
colors and overlapping forms. This heightens the theme of ambiguity and
instability in the work.
2016 alone, Speed’s work was selected for three juried exhibitions in Scotland,
North Carolina and Alabama as well as a two-person show at the Gadsden Museum
of Art in Alabama and a solo exhibit at TEN Gallery in New Orleans. He has a
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from the University of Mississippi
and a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from the University of
Alabama where he is currently an assistant professor of art in painting.
will give an artist talk at 5 p.m. on Jan. 23. The exhibit and talk is free and
open to the public. For information about Berry College's art program: http://berry.edu/academics/humanities/finearts/art/
