St. Lawrence University’s Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will feature “UnNatural History: Photographs by Diane Fox” from March 4 to April 11.
Fox is a distinguished lecturer in the College of Architecture and Design at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where she teaches photography and graphic design. Fox earned an MFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a bachelor’s of fine art from Middle Tennessee State University.
Solo exhibitions of “UnNatural History” have been shown nationally and internationally at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, CA; Erie Art Museum, PA; Huntsville Museum of Art, AL; Antenna Gallery, LA; Dom Muz Gallery, Poland; and Santa Reparata Gallery, Italy. Selected photographs have also been exhibited in invitational and juried shows across the United States and Europe.
In 2017, her work was shown at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France, and the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany, as part of their collaborative exhibition “Dioramas” that looked at the diorama both historically and through the work of contemporary artists.
The photographs in this collection were taken in natural history museums in the United States and abroad. By incorporating glass reflections and items within diorama cases that are meant to remain unseen, Fox points to the disconnection between humans and animals.
Located in the Griffiths Arts Center, the Brush Art Gallery is free and open to the public from noon to 8 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. For more information, contact 315-229-5174 or visit www.stlawu.edu/gallery.
