New Exhibit Features Deborah Dancy’s Artworks in Various Mediums

The Editors


Marcia Wood Gallery will present Body of Evidence, the second solo exhibition at the gallery by artist Deborah Dancy. The exhibition opens on April 30, 2022.

Bringing together multiple recently created bodies of work, Body of Evidence provides a comprehensive survey of Dancy’s explorations in various mediums including painting, sculpture, and photography, which she unites to pursue a trenchant investigation of abstraction, narrative, and the pernicious undercurrents of American history.

Alternately lyrical and subversive, Dancy’s works often operate on multiple levels at once, drawing in the viewer with their aesthetic appeal before revealing unexpectedly sharp barbs of critique and confrontation layered underneath.

Dancy has received numerous honors and awards, including: a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, New England Foundation for the Arts/NEA Individual Artist Grant, Nexus Press Artist Book Project Award, Visual Studies Artist Book Project Residency Grant, The American Antiquarian Society’s William Randolph Hearst Fellowship, a YADDO Fellow, Women’s Studio Workshop Residency Grant, Connecticut Commission of the Arts Artist Grant, as well as a Connecticut Book Award Illustration Nominee.

Her work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art; 21C Museum; the Birmingham Museum of Art; and the Baltimore Museum of Art, among others.
