Another Country- Aspects of Scottish Migration
March 12, 2018 – June 3, 2018

Migration affects everybody either directly or indirectly. In Minnesota, there are 428,000 foreign-born residents, 8% of the population.
This exhibition brings together twelve artists from distinct, ethnically and culturally diverse backgrounds, all born or currently living in Scotland. It assesses the historical and, at times negative, impact of Scottish colonialism on the United States, while at the same time tackling issues with contemporary migration, a complex subject with rapidly growing relevance in the current political climate. The work presented is personal as most of the artists are migrants themselves.
Referencing the title of James Baldwin’s 1962 novel of the same name, the exhibition highlights that for each individual living in the same city, America can become ‘another country’, depending on one’s ethnicity, status and situation.
Prejudice against migrants has been in place for generations and our aim with the project is to highlight that migration is an ancient phenomenon that has not always been welcomed but has enabled significant benefits for countries that eventually become home.
The exhibition does not aim to instruct the visitor but rather encourage a discussion. Through a series of events and seminars it provides an opportunity for sustainable dialogue with migrants, artists, students and academics that will lead to new insights into community building and integration.
The project is co-curated by Euan Gray, Elaine Rutherford and Alberta Whittle.

Group exhibition ‘Precipice’ at Deiglan, Akureyri, Iceland, curated by Dana Hargrove
14:00 – 17:00, May 13th & 14th, 2017
Deiglan, Listagil , Art Street, Kaupvangsstræti 23, Akureyri, Iceland
Artists Dana Hargrove, Dawn Roe and Rachel Simmons and geographer Lee Lines announce a group exhibition titled:
The USA-based artists and collaborators of the group exhibition Precipice have created an exhibition that uses the Icelandic landscape as a vehicle, or jumping off point (precipice) to prompt thoughtful deliberation on universal concerns. Each artist has allowed Iceland’s landscape to infiltrate into the content of their art practice while conducting fieldwork or participating in Icelandic artist residencies. The works, of varying mediums and theoretical approach, promote multi-faceted interpretations, yet often cross paths in areas concerning memory, perception, representation, consumerism, climate change, and sustainability.
The installation format, including the use of wall text, encourages broader conversation regarding our perceptions of landscape as a natural, cultural, and politicized entity. The artists wish to serve as alt rogue ambassadors (#altgov) for the USA, among the many in opposition to the current Trump administration’s attack on science and intellectualism, which unless resisted could very well jeopardize life on this beautiful planet.

‘Plop Props’ takes the form of cardboard cutouts made from reclaimed consumer packaging, creating facades of small mound-like memorials. Propped in unsavory nooks and crannies of downtown Orlando, they suggest family units within a larger community, and re-imagine our widespread experiences of displacement and economic struggle. ‘Plop Props’ also runs a discourse between the gentrification […]

CORNELL FINE ARTS MUSEUM ANNOUNCES FACULTY EXHIBITION
Presenting recent works by artists and art professors Joshua Almond, Rose Thome Casterline, Dana Hargrove, Dawn Roe, and Rachel Simmons.
Winter Park, FL (April 6, 2016) – On view from April 16-May 15, 2016, the 2016 Rollins Faculty Exhibition at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum (CFAM) at Rollins College offers an opportunity to share new or recent work by five innovative artists with both the campus community and the greater Orlando area. Beyond their dedication to teaching at Rollins, the featured artists, Joshua Almond, Rose Thome Casterline, Dana Hargrove, Dawn Roe, and Rachel Simmons maintain busy studio practices and exhibit their work both regionally and nationally. “Composed of works shown here for the first time, the exhibition sheds light on new bodies of work and ongoing explorations for the artists’ robust practices,” states Ena Heller, director of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum.
Dana Hargrove uses her distinctive abstract language in new ways in a series of free-standing sculptures presented in the exhibition. Her forms, often made in loose-reference to cairns, stone mounds in her native Scotland, play with notions of reality and constructed facades as the backing of some of the pieces evoke the presentation style of the iconic Hollywood sign.
An interesting article about Women and Abstraction, curated by Amy Galpin-
Women make up more than 50 percent of the community of working artists; will women studying art right now see parity in their lifetimes? Eventually, says Galpin, “I hope that this concept for a show becomes unnecessary.”
Terrain features the work of Rollins faculty Adam Farcus, Dana Hargrove and Rachel Simmons. The exhibition addresses our relationship with landscape and the environment through mixed media installation, sculpture, painting and drawing. A closing reception will take place on February 19, 2015, 12:30pm – 1:30pm. Winter Park Welcome Center, map
