Artifact is proud to present a new exhibition of its alumni members Luke Padgett and Shane Darwent.
Having helped start the studio and showspace in the fall of 2011, Darwent and Padgett left Artifact after 1 year to pursue other ventures. They have both since returned to Chattanooga and will present an exhibition of this past year's gleanings. Darwent will show a portion of his traveling solo exhibition, Coming Soon, which explores America's post-recession landscape through photography, painting, sculpture, and found object installation. Since leaving Artifact, Padgett has been an active freelance filmmaker and will be screening a new short film about current Artifact artist, Eric Smith. He will also be presenting his latest non-fiction project Towering Waves, which explores the dizzying complexity of communication from the point of view of the cellular tower workers that make it all possible. Merriment to follow with live, acoustic music by both traveling and local musicians.
