Angus Galloway, “Untitled,” 30in x 22in, ink and watercolor on paper

Un Earth is a new body of work featuring different approaches to drawing and painting. Galloway’s work hints at new ideas that began following his relocation to Nashville, Tennessee. Researching the complexity of our bodies’ skin, specifically the fascia – a web like structure of connective tissue that lies just below the epidermis. This layer is out of sight but critical to buttressing skeletal framework to keeping internal organs in place. Within the new work, there is a conscious desire to go beyond the surface of the paper to locate something suspended in the paper’s fibers – leading to a cyclical process of building up marks, and pushing them back.

Angus Galloway is an interdisciplinary artist who works in drawing, painting, installation, and sound. His most recent solo exhibition, Newfoundland, was held at Gallery 72 in 2022. He has created site-specific installations for exhibitions such as New Genre Landscape at Candler Park in Atlanta, Georgia; Art In Odd Places in New York City, New York; and Tenderlandscape at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. His work has been in group exhibitions including Sprawl: Drawing Outside the Lines at the High Museum of Art, The Drawing Experiment at Chastain Arts Center, Triple Play at Marcia Wood Castleberry, and Gathered at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. Galloway was the cofounder of DRAW@MOCA at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, a groundbreaking program that turned the museum into a classroom, giving local artists the opportunity to work with the community. As Assistant Professor in the Department of Art, Music, and Theater at Georgia State University he received the Innovation Grant Team Award for “Nature Based Learning Experiences,” an interdisciplinary program centered around cultivating unused greenspaces on campus and incorporating nature-based curriculum in the learning strategy. Galloway was selected as a 2021-22 University of Georgia Governor’s Teaching Fellow, which brought together professors from across the state to engage in new learning models and techniques to meet the challenges and opportunities of present-day college teaching.

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
