Huai Li: Constraint and Transcendence

October 22, 2022 - February 26, 2023

Huai Li’s process involves relentless experimentation, bouts of self-doubt, and liberating moments of confirmation.  Her artmaking is both risky and thrilling while revealing a tender vulnerability.

This exhibition reveals the never-ending journey of self-discovery and personal transformation that drives Li’s work. Her insistence upon connectivity, personal exploration, and play informs her work and process.

Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936 - Present

December 3 – February 26, 2023

The hierarchy of distilled form, immaculate line, and pure color came close to being the mantra of 1930s modern art – particularly that of American Abstract Artists. 

Blurring Boundaries highlights the work of female abstract artists, exploring their astounding range of styles and individual approaches to the guiding principles of abstraction: color, space, light, material, and process.



Blurring Boundaries: The Women of American Abstract Artists, 1936 – Present was organized by The Clara M. Eagle Gallery, Murray State University, Murray, KY and the Ewing Gallery, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC
