We invite you to join us for an Artist Talk with Luke Blevins on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 10:30am in the Community Room at Joplin Public Library.
Blevins’ exhibit, Queer Space, opened in the library’s Bramlage and Willcoxon Foundation Gallery on Sunday, October 10th and runs through Friday, December 31, 2021.
In this work, Blevins explores the tangential relationships between boyhood, social expectations, queer culture, and heteronormative assimilationism. He uses fantastical imagery to illustrate the shifting relationships we have with space and community as we grow and develop into our own persons. Through digital manipulation and processes, he creates imagery that proposes narratives without conclusions.
Blevins was born and raised in Southwest Missouri. He studied art at Missouri Southern State University before earning his Master of Arts at the University of Missouri Kansas City. He teaches at Crowder College in the evenings and works in Admissions at Missouri Southern during the day.
This is a FREE, public event. Registration not necessary. For more information, contact Post Art Library Director Jill Sullivan at 417-623-7953 x1041.
