The End & Means: Works by April Livingston and Joe McCreary at Lite Box

At Lite Box Gallery: Opening Friday, April 8th at 6:00 p.m., The End & Means is a sculptural exhibit, fulfilling the MFA requirements at UA for graduates April Livingston and Joe McCreary. Dealing with themes of her own personal mythology, Livingston aims to inspire the viewer to “question form, assemblage, and the importance of material.” Livingston was born in Mobile, Alabama and received her undergraduate degree from University of New Orleans/University of Mobile and completed a post baccalaureate certificate in painting at S.A.C.I. while studying in Florence, Italy. McCreary’s sculpture deals with the deconstruction of everyday objects, calling into question the importance of the individual components that make up a form. Humorous in their approach, McCreary’s choice of objects is largely autobiographical. McCreary holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and has been an Artist in Residence at Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark for the last ten years. Join us in celebrating with Joe and April!
