The Syracuse University Art Galleries is pleased to premiere a new media installation, Tammy Renée Brackett: Deer Dear. Curated by SUArt Galleries Associate Director and Curator of Collections David L. Prince, Brackett’s recent work combines the digital and natural world to explore humans’ relationship with animals. The exhibition focuses on the White Tailed Deer, posing questions about population control, loss of habitat, and mortality. Presented concurrently with the exhibition Margaret Bourke-White: Moments in History 1930-1945, this exhibition is the first in a series of presentations that celebrate women in the arts at the Syracuse University Art Galleries.
The exhibition will run August 19 – October 19, 2014, in the Shaffer Art Building at Syracuse University. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; and Thursdays 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. The SUArt Galleries will host a free opening night reception from 5:00 – 7:00pm on Thursday, Sept. 4. Patrons are welcome to view the exhibition until the gallery closes at 8:00 pm. The reception is open to the public.
