(ir)regular evolution: New Works by Rachel Stevens

Bunny Conlon Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery, University Art Museum
June 10-September 2, 2022

Opening June 10th, 5:30PM

(ir)regular evolution is an exhibition featuring all new works in clay by Rachel Stevens, NMSU Department of Art Emeritus Professor. These pieces mark a radical shift in Stevens’ practice from large-scale monochromatic metal installations to multicolored biomorphic ceramic sculptures. From evolutionary theories of meteors sparking life on earth to genetic mutations causing cataclysmic pandemics, in this exhibition Stevens’ new forms explore the (ir)regularities that she is embracing in her own work and in our modern world.

Stevens received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and MFA from Syracuse University. Stevens received the Fulbright Research Scholarships to Patan, Nepal in 2006 and Lviv, Ukraine in 2018. She is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant and has shown in galleries and museums nationally and internationally. Rachel served as Area Head of sculpture at New Mexico State University for 25 years. She now divides her life between Las Cruces, New Mexico and Missoula, Montana.
