University of Dallas Haggerty Gallery presents Brian Molanphy: Business, Cleverly Disguised as Pleasure Exhibition
The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery of the University of Dallas will be presenting the opening of the exhibition Business, Cleverly Disguised as Pleasure by Brian Molanphy. Repetition and shadows in Marcel Proust, Marguerite Yourcenar, and Jheronimus Bosch inspired Molanphy’s recent series. The exhibition consists of over 140 works in ceramics and mixed media.
Formerly a bookmaker and baker, Molanphy learned to apprehend the world through containers. Working with paper pulp, printer’s ink, pastry cream, and bread dough led the artist to ceramics.
Molanphy is Assistant Professor of Art at Southern Methodist University in the Meadows School of the Arts. Fellowships from the Fulbright Commission, the Camargo Foundation, the Brown Foundation, and SMU sent him to France where he continues to work periodically. Numerous public and private collections in the American Southwest, Korea, China, and Europe have acquired his art work.
The exhibit will be on display through August 26. There will be an artist’s reception from 5:30-7:30 pm on closing night.
