McClain Gallery says
The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University will honor one of the University's most acclaimed artists with the exhibition Human/nature. The Ridiculous and Sublime: Recent Works by John Alexander. A hardcover 128-page color catalogue has been produced for the exhibition, which includes an essay by Eleanor Jones Harvey, Senior Curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, as well as an artist interview conducted by Meadows Museum Curatorial Assistant Shelley DeMaria. John Alexander will be at McClain Gallery signing copies of the catalogue on Wednesday, March 25, from 6 to 8 pm. Copies of the book will be available for purchase from Curate Books in association with PaperCity Magazine.

Both the catalogue and the exhibition at the Meadows Museum are titled Human/nature. The Ridiculous and Sublime. The exhibition is comprised of 35 works on loan from 26 lenders, including nine from Houston. "Our exhibition spans the past decade of John's career, with the earliest work from 2002, yet it is representative of his trajectory as a whole," DeMaria says. "He is a consummate draftsman, a skillful satirist and a lover of nature. All of these characteristics will be on display in this exhibition."

The Meadows Museum is commemorating its 50th Anniversary in 2015 with a series of special exhibitions and programs. "Exhibiting the work of such a distinguished alumnus as John Alexander is a fitting way to help celebrate both SMU's 100th anniversary and the Meadows Museum's 50th anniversary," says Mark A. Roglán, the Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum and Centennial Chair in the Meadows School of the Arts. "John's brilliant paintings and drawings are an enduring testament to the way in which the Museum has left a profound impact on students and artists over the last 50 years." The exhibition at the Meadows Museum in Dallas will be on view March 22 through June 28, 2015, and features paintings and drawings.
