Craig Drennen, Professor of Drawing, Painting and Printmaking at the Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design, makes his solo exhibition debut at Laney Contemporary in Savannah, GA with “Craig Drennen: Merchants, Bandits, and Certain Senators.” Hear from the 2018 Guggenheim Fellow as he gives a brief overview of the show, including painting details that distinguish his latest Merchant character — all part of Drennen’s long-term practice centered on Shakespeare’s failed “Timon of Athens” 17th-century play.
Craig Drennen’s recent solo exhibition, “Mit Zuckerstange,” took place at Flyweight Projects in Brooklyn, NY. Selected group exhibitions include: Decameron at New Release Gallery in New York City and Depiction, Again at the Kunstverein Langenhagen in Langenhagen, Germany. His work has been reviewed in Art in America, Artforum, and the New York Times. Drennen served as Dean of the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, and manages THE END Project Space in Atlanta.
Drennen’s upcoming projects include a solo exhibition at Adelphi University, Long Island, participation in the Drawing Center’s Viewing Room Program 2021, and in January 2022, an inaugural solo exhibition at Stove Works in Chattanooga, TN.
The exhibition “Craig Drennen: Merchants, Bandits, and Certain Senators” runs through June 26. Click here to view the exhibition.
