Greely Myatt "and exactly Twenty Years"

 Greely Myatt and exactly Twenty Years

 

September-November 2009

"Greely Myatt and exactly  Twenty Years" was a mid-career retrospective featuring approximately twenty years of work by University of Memphis sculpture professor Greely Myatt. The exhibition was hosted by several venues around the city of Memphis, however the largest installment of the exhibition as a whole was displayed at the Art Museum of the University of Memphis. Seven galleries around Memphis featured Myatt's work, and the exhibition received a significant amount of attention both locally and nationally.

Myatt explains his work by saying: “I have consistently attempted to combine art historical references with vernacular influences. As a native of the rural south I have a tremendous respect for work that is made by hand and guided by the heart and eye. However as an educated artist I understand the importance of the mind in the process. To state my approach to the making of art in the simplest and most direct manner, I have tried to use these—the hand, the eye, the heart, and the mind—to shape my work in both the making and the viewing.” MORE INSTALLATION IMAGES HERE
