DELTA STATE UNIVERSITY’S FIELDING WRIGHT ART CENTER GALLERY PRESENTS ROB MILLARD-MENDEZ: RECENT SCULPTURE

Rob Millard-Mendez’s exhibition centers on intricately crafted nautically-themed sculptures. This body of work is heavily influenced by Mr. Millard-Mendez’s many experiences on boats. His father was a commercial fisherman and Mr. Millard-Mendez spent a significant amount of his early life on boats and docks. Yet, Mr. Millard-Mendez also sees boats as powerfully metaphorical and the ones in this exhibition are laden with layers of interwoven meanings. Many of his sculptures are based on themes from classical mythology which here become metaphors for contemporary events, sometimes presented with a dark sense of humor. Above all, Mr. Millard-Mendez sees his sculptures as catalysts for conversation and intellectual exchange.

Rob Millard-Mendez is a Professor of Art at the University of Southern Indiana, Evansville, IN and will conduct a workshop for DSU students while in the Delta. He has received numerous awards for his work and has an impressive exhibition record with 26 solo exhibitions and over 400 group exhibitions, most recently, his work was shown at Ronald Gallery, Portland, IN and the Sarratt Gallery, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.

An opening reception for Rob Millard-Mendez: Recent Sculpture will be held on Thursday, January 23, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The artist will present a gallery talk at 4:00 at the Fielding Wright Art Center gallery. The exhibition will be on view until February 20. Gallery Hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For further information visit the DSU Art Department’s website at http://www.deltastate.edu/artsandsciences/art/gallery/ or contact 662.846.4720.
