Press for “Symbols & Archetypes: Two Millennia of Recurring Visions in Art” at the Fine Arts Gallery

Symbols & Archetypes: Two Millennia of Recurring Visions in Art, the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery’s fall exhibition, made headlines (and a cover page) during its fall 2019 run.

The national art magazine Art & Antiques profiled the exhibition in a five-page feature titled “Ageless Images“; The Nashville Scene said our trans-collection exhibition “leads the season’s must-see art shows” in its Fall Guide; and The Tennessean published a piece that included a fantastic quote from Volney Gay—emeritus professor of Psychiatry, Religious Studies and Anthropology—who advised on the exhibition.

“Burnaway,” The Voice of Art in the South reviewed the exhibition as “a meditative, slightly spooky trip into the collective unconscious… displaying artifacts and artworks including ancient Chinese currency, alchemical texts, a selection of tarot card decks and proto-surrealist illustrations, twentieth-century lithographs by Marc Chagall,  Salvador Dali, and Pablo Picasso, and works by more contemporary artists including the Tennessee-based painters David Onri Anderson and Rubens Ghenov.” Read the full review here.
