October at the UT Downtown Gallery


The UT Downtown Gallery is pleased to present False Calm, an installation by Sam Vernon.

Sam Vernon earned her MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University in 2015 and her BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 2009.

Her installations combine xeroxed drawings, photographs, paintings and sculptural components in an exploration of personal narrative and identity. She uses installation and performance to honor the past while revising historical memory. Vernon has most recently exhibited with We Buy Gold, Interstitial Gallery, Coney Art Walls curated by Jeffrey Deitch, Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, Fowler Museum at UCLA and Seattle Art Museum. Sam lives in Oakland, CA and teaches printmaking as an Assistant Professor at California College of the Arts (CCA).

Please join us for a First Friday opening reception on October 4 from 5-9pm at the UT Downtown Gallery.

Vernon will give a public lecture on her work on Thursday, October 3rd at 7:30pm in room 109 of the Art + Architecture Building.
