Our next exhibition at the MSU Union Art Gallery, Grand River, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Jeffery Evergreen. Evergreen recieved his MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook in 2014 and  BFA from Michigan State University in 2004 with a concentration in Painting & Sculpture.

The circulation, remediation, and recombination of images is the current focus of Evergreen’s arts practice. He uses a combination of digital and print processes to deconstruct contemporary images and draw attention to the materials and processes used and invite viewers to reconsider their personal relationship with images, technology, and mass media. But rather than offering some ideologically over-simplified answer, he prefers that larger questions about meaning and cultural value persist, coming to the fore to initiate conversations in which a more broad and balanced understanding may be achieved.
