Paint Creek Center for the Arts presents Boxed Narratives: The Portraiture of Structures, a solo exhibition showcasing the paintings of artist T.R. Wilson on view from Saturday, January 24 through Saturday, February 28, 2015 in the Main Gallery. The exhibition features Wilson’s current body of work which is reflective and represents three connective narratives told through the portraiture of structures. The narratives include intrinsic ideals, collective histories and elements of capitalism.

The press release went on to say that Wilson currently lives in the Greater Detroit metropolitan area. He received his BFA from Eastern Michigan University in graphic design and his MA in painting from Wayne State University. He has participated in multiple group and juried exhibitions and has been the recipient of a number of distinctive honors. Wilson’s current direction as an artist leans toward the exploration of social issues. He embraces a personal responsibility to contribute elements of substance; works that add to the conversation of humanity.

Please join Paint Creek Center for the Arts for a gallery talk with the artist on Saturday, January 24 from 4–5 p.m. followed by an opening reception from 5–7 p.m. The gallery talk and reception are free and open to the public.

This exhibit is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
