Gallery 842 to feature exhibit by artist Kaz McCue beginning Friday
McCue is known as a staunch advocate for the arts and has been recognized throughout his career for community involvement and his efforts to enhance access and participation in the arts
"McCue brings to our campus and community a wealth of experience as a noted visual artist, educator, curator and arts administrator," said John Farley, Marshall University's gallery director. "Given the open, collaborative spirit between university and community that we aim to promote, he is a natural fit for an exhibition at Gallery 842."
McCue holds a B.F.A. in photography from the Parsons School of Design and an M.F.A. in mixed media from Long Island University/ C. W. Post Campus. He has received numerous grants and awards and has exhibited his work nationally and internationally. As a curator, McCue has put together more than 200 exhibitions and more than 100 lectures and artist presentations.
The artist has taught at numerous universities, colleges and academies and has served in several arts administration positions. He currently teaches at the Leelanau School in Glen Arbor, Mich., and recently served as artist-in-residence at the Prairie Center of the Arts in Peoria, Ill., and Blue Sky Project in Dayton, Ohio. His work is also the subject of a recent catalog titled "Bad Seed" that explores the masculine stereotype in relation to ideas of social justice that are encapsulated in his installation work.
McCue's solo exhibition will be on display until April 5. Gallery 842 is free and open to the public from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
