Walker to Display Artwork Beginning March 2 at ABAC

February 16, 2015

Jordan Walker, adjunct art appreciation instructor at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, will showcase his selected artwork in the exhibit “Echoes – New Beginnings” on March 2-13 in the ABAC Art Gallery in Bowen Hall.

A reception on March 5 from 4-6:30 p.m. will also be a part of Walker’s gallery showing.  Dr. Jeff Newberry, ABAC poet-in-residence, and a select group of poets will present readings during the reception.

“Painting has always served as a method of telling stories in my work, and it is a constant endeavor to explore the narrative potential of both image and material,” said Walker.  “These ‘narratives’ often take the form of probing psychological introspection.  Through both portraiture and abstract compositions, I have sought to provide a chronicle of the dialogue between the painter and the painting that simultaneously reflects my own varying mental states at the time.  By laying bare certain aspects of my own psyche, I hope to address these traits in humanity on a universal level.”

A native of Preston, Walker attended Georgia Southwestern before going on to receive his master’s degree in fine art from Long Island University in New York.  He has exhibited art in New York City and throughout Long Island.
