William Dooley: Drawing on Clairmont Avenue

PaperWorkers Local is honored to present "Drawing on Clairmont Avenue," William T. Dooley's first solo exhibition with the co-op. Vibrant layers of dry media and oil paint create subtle, yet enticing shifts between spatial planes in his multi-media drawings and paintings. Outlines of organic and geometric objects are frequently overlaid with linear bands of color, creating an engaging tension between what is perceived as background and foreground. This tension is consistent throughout Dooley's work and raises questions about how we distinguish between that which lies in the forefront and periphery of our experience with the world around us.

Memory of Singlewide in the Sun

Since 1988, Mr. Dooley has served as an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art. Dooley teaches drawing as well as seminars devoted to graduate studio research. He offers an advanced undergraduate course on art museum practices. He earned an M.F.A. form the Univeristy of South Carolina in 1980 and his work has been included in over 50 regional and national exhibitions. His dedication to community outreach includes his contribution of expertise for exhibits management for the Rural Studio, an architectural design/build program affiliated with Auburn University, and active in the Blackbelt region of Alabama.

Dooley's exhibition will be on view from June 20 through August 8. 2014.
