Land of Tomorrow Presents UK MFA Show 'Red Herring'

Published: Apr 25, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 25, 2013)Land of Tomorrow (LOT) Gallery presents Red Herring, an exhibition of work by several MFA (Master of Fine Arts) students produced as part of a class led by instructor and Lexington artist Joel Feldman. There will be a closing reception for the show at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at the LOT Gallery, located at 527 East Third St., Lexington.

 

Red Herring will include work from graduate students Jackson Bullock, Peggy Coots, Michael J. Hamilton, Ivy Johnson, Trey Jolly, David N. Martin and Mayuresh Moghe. Each of the artists in this exhibition and their instructor often explore issues of red herring in terms of art making, both consciously and unconsciously.

 

A red herring is a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented to divert attention from the original issue. Although the artists individually explore their own red herring and how it relates to their art making, they acknowledge that their understanding of the term may differ from one another, the instructor and their audience. The title of this exhibition can possibly be viewed as the group's communal red herring.

LOT is a project space created to facilitate the making and showcasing of experimental work in the fields of art, design and music in Kentucky. Through exhibitions, performances, artist talks, work documentation and other activities, LOT fosters an open dialogue with the regional and international creative communities.
 

The MFA students are enrolled in the UK School of Art and Visual Studies in the UK College of Fine Arts. The UK School of Art and Visual Studies is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of art studio, art history and art education.
