Alum in solo exhibiton at Stone House Art Gallery
Kristin Hough’s (MFA ‘16) solo show “It’s All Coming Up” at the Stone House Art Gallery is on display to April 30, 2021.
“It’s All Coming Up” presents Hough’s most recent series of work focusing on screen-captured still frames from consecutive TV seasons of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise. Thirty paintings line the length of the gallery walls, while six more float atop a draping red velvet curtain. A ubiquitous trope becomes clear in uniting each work– the depiction of female contestants crying on camera.
Stone House Art Gallery (SHAG) is an artist run project space located in a repurposed garage in Charlotte, North Carolina. SHAG gives emerging artists the opportunity to show their work in a gallery setting with the freedom to direct the content and curation of their exhibitions. Artists from an array of backgrounds and disciplines are able to generate spatial conversations with their work that they otherwise would not have the opportunity to do, due to lack of exhibition space.
