Artist Philip Jackson of Oxford named 2016 recipient

(Jackson, Miss.) … The Museum is pleased to announce the 2016 recipient of The Jane Crater Hiatt Artist Fellowship. The grant of $15,000 has been awarded to Philip R. Jackson of Oxford, whose artwork is featured in the 2016 Mississippi Invitational, on view through March 12, 2017.

An Artist’s Look with Philip R. Jackson

Join artist Philip R. Jackson for a casual, conversational gallery experience. Jackson shares personal reflections and connections on his own work as well as on those of other artists featured in the 2016 Mississippi Invitational. Cost: $10, $5 for Members (ticket includes admission to the exhibition).

2 PM
“Conversations with… Mississippi Artists” panel discussion

Guest Curator of the 2016 Mississippi Invitational will be joined by Jane Hiatt and Philip Jackson for a panel discussion moderated by Roger Ward, MMA Deputy Director and Chief Curator. Cost: Free, open to the public.

Administered through the Museum, The Jane Crater Hiatt Artist Fellowship provides a unique study-and-travel scholarship to support an individual artist in the development and creation of art over the course of two years. Artists whose work is selected to be included in the 2016 Mississippi Invitational exhibition are eligible to apply for the grant in the year that their work is chosen. Jackson is one of eighteen artists chosen by Guest Curator Marisa J. Pascucci for inclusion in this year’s presentation.

The fellowship recipient is determined by a panel of jurors following the selection of artists whose work is to be exhibited in the Mississippi Invitational. The chosen artist is required to donate one original work of art created during the grant period to the Museum’s permanent collection.

When applying for the grant, artists must demonstrate how the award could influence the development and direction of their work. Artists may use the funds for the following objectives: to study with an individual artist or in a studio, workshop, or residency setting; to pursue projects which further artistic development and support the realization of specific creative ideas; to purchase supplies and equipment; to conduct research; and to travel.

In his artist’s statement, Jackson said, “Overlooked and commonplace objects are suspended in a single moment. Imbued with a human-like presence, these inanimate objects seem as though they have been having a conversation long before our approach to the picture.”

Jackson is an associate professor of art at The University of Mississippi in Oxford where he currently teaches and heads the painting program. His work is part of the permanent collections of art museums in Evansville and Fort Wayne, Indiana; Huntsville, Alabama; and most recently the Mississippi Arts Commission in Jackson.

With the fellowship funds, Jackson plans to apply for the Ballinglen Arts Foundation Residency in Ballycastle, Ireland.

According to Jane Hiatt, “The idea for this fellowship grew from my years of listening to artists and learning what a difference mid-career travel and study can make in an artist’s vision, skill, and scope. I wanted to foster that and enhance the Mississippi Museum of Art’s relationship with artists living in the state.”

“We’re honored to share Jane Hiatt’s vision and commitment to Mississippi artists through this prestigious fellowship,” said Betsy Bradley, Director of the Museum. “Because of her generosity, Hiatt fellows have the opportunity to travel the globe, evolve their art practices, and bring exciting new ideas and aesthetics back to the state.”

Presenting sponsors for the exhibition are the Jane Crater Hiatt Mississippi Art Invitational and Artist Fellowship Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson and AT&T.

An opening reception for Mississippi Invitational artists, special guests and Museum members is scheduled for Friday, January 13, from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m.

On Saturday, January 14, at 2 p.m., Guest Curator Pascucci will be joined by Hiatt and Jackson for a panel discussion moderated by the Museum’s Chief Curator Roger Ward. The event is free and open to the public.

Admission to the 2016 Mississippi Invitational is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students. Free admission for children under the age of five and Museum members. To learn more, click here.

The Mississippi Museum of Art and its programs are sponsored in part by the city of Jackson and Visit Jackson. Support is also provided in part by funding from the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency, and in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

GWEI – GOOGLE WILL EAT ITSELF

We generate money by serving Google text advertisments on a network of hidden Websites. With this money we automatically buy Google shares. We buy Google via their own advertisment! Google eats itself – but in the end “we” own it!

By establishing this autocannibalistic model we deconstruct the new global advertisment mechanisms by rendering them into a surreal click-based economic model.

After this process we hand over the common ownership of “our” Google Shares to the GTTP Ltd. [Google To The People Public Company] which distributes them back to the users (clickers) / public.

Night Sun: Curated by Philip R. Jackson

Southside Gallery is pleased to announce Night Sun, a group exhibition of paintings curated by Philip R. Jackson that will take place from August 16th to September 10th, 2016. There will be an artists’ reception on Thursday, September 8th from 6 to 8 pm.

Curator Philip R. Jackson is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Mississippi, where he teaches and heads the painting program. The works included in Night Sun depict subjects observed under artificial light. Jackson writes of the exhibition, “Here light becomes the lifeblood of a painting; its illuminated effect is metaphysical in translation and abstract in revelation. Each artist explores its distinct affects, transforming commonplace subjects into lasting impressions.”

Most of the artists included in the exhibition are members of the Perceptual Painters Collective, founded in 2008 by Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts graduates David Campbell and Brian Rego. They are Victoria Barnes, Logan Blanco, David Campbell, Tim Conte, Elizabeth and Philip Geiger, David Jewell, Matt Klos, John Lee, Aaron Lubrick, Andrew Patterson-Tutschka, Brian Rego, Erin Raedeke, and Peter Van Dyck. Other artists not a part of the collective who will also be exhibiting include Neil Callander, Matthew Lopas, Benny Melton, Marcus Michels, and Joseph Morzuch.

According to founding member Brian Rego, Perceptual Painting involves acquiring and cultivating a visual language derived from sensation, memory, and imagination. While painting from life is essential to the practice, Perceptual Painting takes a more analytical approach to mimesis. It does not, in contrast to photography, replicate exact reality, but conveys “experiential reality” through stylistic manipulations of form. The Perceptual Painters try to capture form in flux—as living and shifting—establishing, in effect, a more direct relationship between the act of painting and the painting itself.
