Gainesville, GA., October 18, 2012 – Gainesville State College’s Roy C. Moore Art Gallery presents Imminent Overgrowth, an installation by Heather Deyling, November 1 -28, 2012.
Imminent Overgrowth features paintings, drawings, and site specific sculptures inspired by the forms kudzu takes as it crawls over objects in the South, consuming objects along its path.
To create her installations, Deyling transfers organic forms from her paintings and drawings onto felt, and then cuts out the shapes, and dyes them. Joining the forms together, the felt works create “an immersive environment of mysterious, colorful mutations.”
Deyling earned an MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art in 2000, and a BFA in Painting/Printmaking from Kent State in 1997. She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States, including Philadelphia, PA, Richmond, VA, Los Angeles, CA and Hilo, HI.
Recently, Deyling had solo exhibitions at Gallery SPACE in Savannah, GA and the Cochenour Gallery at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. She is currently on the faculty at Savannah College of Art and Design.
Imminent Overgrowth will be on display in the Roy C. Moore Art Gallery at Gainesville State College located in the Continuing Education/ Performing Arts Building on Gainesville State College’s Gainesville Campus from November 1 through November 28. There will be a closing reception and artist talk on November 28, at noon. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
The Roy C. Moore Art Gallery is open Monday through Wednesday, from 10AM to 4PM, and on Thursday from 10AM to 7PM. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 678-717-3707.
