A new exhibition at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas highlights the works of 21 artists represented through the contemporary Dallas-based Erin Cluley Gallery and Cluley Projects. Cluley is an MSU alumna.
The artists showcased in A Survey of Artists from Erin Cluley Gallery work in traditional and alternative forms, including painting, sculpture, new media, photography, sculpture installation, and public intervention. This exhibition offers an opportunity to see exceptional works by emerging and mid-career artists based in Texas, the East Coast, Mexico, and Australia.
“I had a fantastic experience visiting the museum to install my piece, ‘Wildflowers,’” said Du Chau, one of the artists featured. “The staff was so helpful and accommodating. It is an honor to be included in the exhibition along with the other notable artists.”
After graduating from MSU Texas in 2001, Cluley received her Masters of Fine Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied under Grace Hartigan. She served as the Director of Exhibitions at the Dallas Contemporary from 2009 to 2014 and opened Erin Cluley Gallery in the fall of 2014. In 2021, Cluley opened Cluley Projects – a satellite location focusing on artists in the region, fostering community, and uplifting emerging artists.
