EXHIBITION: Storytelling by Libby McFalls
August 25 @ 9:00 am - September 22 @ 5:00 pmFree
Raised in East Tennessee, Libby McFalls’s love of storytelling began during her childhood through attendance at the National Storytelling Festival. Her love and appreciation of oral storytelling increased over time, emphasized by the summers she and her sisters spent among extended family of five living generations. She creates nonlinear visual narratives that examine issues of loss and family. Her work explores moments, blurring the line between fact and fiction, life and death, humor and sorrow demonstrating the contradiction and complexity of life. Her latest work will be featured in Storytelling in the Milliken Art Gallery.
McFalls is a Professor of Art and the Department of Art’s Art Foundation Coordinator at Columbus State University. She also holds the position of VP of Communications for Foundations of Art: Theory & Education. She received her MFA in Printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art (MI) and her BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design (OH). McFalls’s work has been exhibited in national and international locations, including the Athica Athens Institute, South Bay Contemporary (Los Angeles), SoLA Gallery, Kai Lin Art Gallery, and Gallery 1 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Storytelling will run from August 25-September 22, 2022. McFalls will present a Gallery Talk on September 1st at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday 2:00-5:00pm, Monday – Friday 9:00am-5:00pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
