The University of Dallas Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming opening of “NATURA NATURATA: Nature Already Created,” an exhibition of works by artists Aaron Foster and Taryn McMahon. Both artists use printmaking, drawing, digital collage and photography to create immersive installations reflecting their connection with and exploration in the natural world. Informed by visits to ecological sites and mediated through the art-making process, nature “out there” is brought into the gallery for us to encounter new. “NATURA NATURATA” opens Friday, Feb. 1, 2019, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., and runs through Feb. 26.
Both Foster and McMahon are current faculty members at the Kent State University School of Art. Foster is an assistant professor of print media; he received his MFA in printmaking and book arts from the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. His work is exhibited both nationally and internationally.
McMahon received her MFA from the University of Iowa and is an assistant professor of studio art at Kent State University, where she specializes in printmaking. Her work has received numerous awards and residencies, and she has had solo exhibitions at The Print Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Lexington Art League in Lexington, Kentucky.
