This month, VCS instructor Munro Galloway has an exhibition titled “Uncorrected Proofs” on display in the University Galleries at Illinois State University’s College of Fine Arts. Here is some more information about the show, quoted from its page on the University Galleries website:

Munro Galloway, Visiting Artist in the School of Art, seeks to expand the language of painting through collage, appropriation, ruptured narrative, and inexpensive print technology. Galloway’s recent projects include Green River, for which he committed to completing one painting per day for an entire year, and True Flag, a series of colorful abstract paintings with evocative titles like Should Have Taken Acid With You. The artist also incorporates books and prints into his practice, using the vocabulary of collage to create jarring juxtapositions of images, and frequently of images and text.

Galloway received his M.F.A. from Bard College (2006), and his B.A. from Brown University (1994). His work has been exhibited at Murray Guy, New York; The Ohio State University, Columbus; Hudson-Franklin, New York; and Galerie Martin Kudlek, Cologne, Germany. His work has been reviewed in Artforum, Flash Art, and The New Yorker. He is a Lecturer at the School of Visual Arts, New York and Co-Director of Soloway, an independent project space in Brooklyn. Galloway lives in Brooklyn.

“Uncorrected Proofs” will be on display through April 1, 2012. If you would like more information on the show, please contact University Galleries of Illinois State University by phone at (309) 438-5487, or by e-mail at gallery@ilstu.edu.
