Converse exhibition

Printmaker Chloe Alexander will feature her latest work in the Milliken Art Gallery in CONSTRUCT & ASSEMBLE. The exhibition is a visual case study that explores social conditioning from the everyday perspective of “the other;” in this case, a Black person living in the American South. “My work is a form of story-telling. Inspired by the rich, high contrast illustrations found in illuminated texts, graphic novels, and children’s fairy tales, the often-whimsical imagery and characters that I create are meant to provoke a sense of nostalgia and familiarity within the viewer,” states Alexander.

Chloe Alexander is a printmaker who lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Her most recent work focuses on creating visual narratives by layering various printmaking techniques to create one-of-a-kind, mixed-media drawings. Chloe obtained her BFA in Printmaking in 2010 and an M.Ed. in 2014, both from Georgia State University. She has exhibited widely, including Kai Lin Art Gallery in Atlanta, the International Print Center in New York, and Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in London. Chloe has also been awarded numerous awards, grants and fellowships, including a two-year fellowship with The Creatives Project in Atlanta and the Parent Artist Award at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA.

CONSTRUCT & ASSEMBLE will run from February 2-March 2, 2023. Alexander will present a gallery talk on February 2, 2023 at 6:00 pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00 pm.

The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday 2:00-5:00pm, Monday – Friday 9:00 am-5:00 pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
