The Vol State Thigpen Library Gallery will display the work of Ohio artist Andrew Dailey in February. The show is called "Genus Machina."
Promotion for the artist describes his work this way: "Andrew Dailey's drawings explore themes of adaptation, evolution, truth and fiction. The Genus Machina drawings are an ongoing series that examines a hypothetical nexus between biological and technological adaptation. Each drawing in the series derives from the questionable notion that mankind could potentially "fix" or "improve upon" nature through the use of technology."
Dailey is from Dayton, Ohio. He teaches at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and works at the Rosewood Art Center. His work will appear at the Vol State Thigpen Library Gallery through February. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The gallery is closed on Sunday. Dailey will have a gallery talk on February 13 at 10 a.m. next to the Gallery. The Thigpen Library Gallery is located on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. For more information call 615-230-3201.
