Hendrix Hosts Solo Exhibition by Visiting Artist

Rebecca Carter - UnknownCONWAY, Ark. (November 5, 2013) – The Hendrix College Department of Art will host "No Place Like Home," a solo exhibition of recent works, including video installation, by visiting artist Rebecca Carter from Thursday, Nov. 14 – Tuesday, Nov. 26 in Trieschmann Gallery.

The exhibition is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

There will be an artist talk at 6 p.m. and an opening reception at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14. The talk and reception are open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Carter's works explore states of intimacy and alienation as they shift through reading, touch, and other states of reception. She engages processes of appropriation, tracing, erasing, reconstructing, and the performative in various media, notably the groundless thread drawing and video. She holds an MFA in fiber and material studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in studio/art history and women's studies from Oberlin College.  For more information, visit
