Wed, 01/05/2011 - 2:15pm

MOBILE, Ala. – Spring Hill College’s Eichold Gallery will host “Corporeal Veil Unraveled,” an exhibition by Fairhope, Ala., artist Pinky Bass, Feb. 14 – March 11, 2011. An opening reception will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17 with a gallery talk to follow at 7 p.m.

Bass is a nationally recognized photographer whose work has been exhibited in numerous museums and collections, including the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Huntsville Museum of Art, the Birmingham Museum of Art and The Polaroid Corporation. Bass’s work has been featured in publications such as “Aperture” and “The Pinhole Journal.” She was awarded an Alabama Artist Fellowship and a grant from the South Arts Federation/National Endowment for the Arts. Publications include “The Polaroid Book” and “Book of Alternative Photographic Processes.”

In 1998, at age 52, Bass received a Master of Fine Arts from Georgia State University in photography. In recent years, Bass began stitching on photographs and perforating photographs, which are then fed into music box sculptures so that one can actually “hear” the photographic image. Most recently, Bass is exploring the mysteries of the human body through various forms of hand-done fiber arts.

The Eichold Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information on the Eichold Gallery or this exhibit, contact Wanda Sullivan at (251) 380-3863 or wsullivan@shc.edu.
