Jeanne Silverthorne to have solo show at The University of Kentucky Art Museum


Jeanne Silverthorne will present new works in an upcoming solo exhibition at the University of Kentucky Art Museum this October. The exhibition, “More Flesh and Bone” includes new works made of cast rubber, which gives them a decidedly fleshy feel. Crates of varying sizes (with cartoon-like nails and painted wood grain) serve as pedestals for a spinning globe, a pair of skeletons, burnt-out lightbulbs, and a small self-portrait. The combination of these works offers a meditation on time, human effort, and nagging questions of success and failure.

The exhibition will be on view from October 6, 2020 to February 13, 2021.
