The Batesville Area Arts Council is pleased to present clock/work, a group exhibition at the BAAC Gallery on Main (226 E Main St) March 8 – April 23, 2022. clock/work is a multi-media group exhibition centered on the structure and iconicity of sports as a way of relating to society more broadly and sifting through topics of identity, representation and engagement. Time, or more specifically time constraints, are the basis for the ways in which the majority of sports and games function. Featuring the work of Maryamsadat Amirvaghefi, Abigail Smithson, and Breanne Trammell, clock/work explores those functions; the works range from being critical to celebratory of the individual elements that combine to create our shared culture within sports.

Maryam Amirvaghefi, born in Tehran, Iran, currently works at the University Of Arkansas School Of Art as an Assistant Director of Exhibitions and Instructor. Amiravghefi’s mixed media works include painting, video art, and sculpture pieces. Abigail Smithson is an artist based in Batesville, Arkansas. With a focus on documentation, her work is rooted in the appreciation, translation and act of making records. Basketball is her muse; she uses the game as a lens for viewing issues surrounding the body and representation. Breanne Trammell is an artist currently based in Fairfield, CA, who prioritizes using lo-fi and common materials like T-shirts, bumper stickers, and classified ads—non-privileged and public sites of potential discourse to create multi-media work.

Please join us for a gallery reception on Thursday, April 7, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., with a member-only Happy Hour starting at 5 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
