Tate Foley

"So it goes."

Opening on October 18th 2012, 7 p.m.

Working from a broad and deep knowledge of many different artistic disciplines with a printmaking core, Tate creates art that distorts and twists the expected relationships between pictures and text. All of his pieces, whether they are drawings, digital works, photography, or prints, have a visible influence from the graphic design of advertising, which makes their criticism of consumerism and politics all the more striking.

Tate Foley lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri, where he is an Assistant Professor of Art/Visiting Artist at Webster University. He received his BA in Studio Art in 2007 from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania and his MFA in Printmaking in 2010 from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. His work has been recently exhibited in New York City, Washington D.C., Portland, Saint Louis, Cleveland, and purchased by Yale University Library, Reed College Library, and Toledo Museum of Art.
