Fall 2018 Shows
"innocence in silence," works by Jieun beth
September 6-30, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6-8 pm
Jieun Beth was born in the U.S. and grew up in South Korea, Canada, and France; living in twelve different cities. Her artistic direction was motivated by the diverse influences surrounding her. She graduated with her MFA in Studio Art at the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 and received her BFA in Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009.
She explores the idea of Personal identity and examines the influence of the body, memory and transience of life on the understanding of one's identity.
Her works have been part of multiple group shows nationally and internationally, including New York City, Austin, and Bulgaria. Her collaborative public art project, The Dwelling, was funded by the City of Austin's Culture Alive grant, at the Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin, Texas. The project will be relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 2018.
Our mission is to exhibit exciting works of contemporary art from regional, national and international artists. The McCormick Gallery is dedicated to providing an educational experience for our students and a cultural haven for the Midland Community. We offer students unique insights into artists’ work. Whenever possible, artists are invited to give lectures, critiques, and demonstrations, and we’ve even hosted exhibitions in which students worked directly with professional artists. We strive to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable to all members of our community. Our programming embraces diversity, supporting all sorts of art from all kinds of artists.
Every year we have a full calendar of group and solo shows including the annual Midland Arts Association Fall Juried Art Exhibition. Each Spring and Fall our Student Art Shows celebrate the creative endeavors of Midland College students enrolled in Fine Arts classes.
Art is an enormous priority for us at Midland College, and we take great pride in this program which began in 1971, even before the campus had a fine arts building.
