Sussex County Community College’s Art Gallery will host an exhibition of contemporary art by Autumn T. Thomas.

The ‘Suite of Subjective Juncture’ exhibit will be on display from through Oct. 13. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Sept. 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Art Gallery.

Autumn’s work explores a range of social commentary and diversity politics that reflect on the role of subjective experience within contemporary society, culture and life. She creates new forms and imagery through the marriage of two contrasting materials; handmade paper and forged metals.

The materials become a metaphor for the black body, speaking to vulnerability and tenacity, respectively. In her work, the artist attempts to challenge common perceptions and generate a dialogue in order to challenge misconceptions that can lead to racial bias. Her prints, artists' books, and installations reference trompe l'oeil — a French term meaning "deceive the eye", under the auspices of finding a common entry point into the difficult conversation about race relations.

Autumn T. Thomas lives and works in Philadelphia, Pa. She creates artist's books and interdisciplinary prints that take a critical view of cultural, social, and political issues. She is currently a resident Artist Fellow at Peter's Valley School of Craft in Layton.

A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Autumn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is a recent graduate from The University of the Arts’ Book Arts + Printmaking Master of Fine Art Program in Philadelphia.

The Art Gallery at Sussex County Community College is open to the community and free of charge, all are welcome.
