Mannish – Travis Donovan
April 4 – September 8, 2019
Reception with the artist – Thursday, May 9th from 6 – 8 p.m.
Artist Travis Donovan works to uncover the hidden nuances present in everyday objects by presenting them as metaphors for self and place. Heavily influenced by Appalachian culture, Donovan collects, embellishes, and tinkers with mundane items in order to bring their meaning into question. He is particularly interested in exploring stereotypes of economic class and masculinity through works in mixed and new media. Donovan is currently Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Area Coordinator at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
