The Meadows Museum honors one of SMU’s own with an exhibition of works by artist John Alexander. Featuring a focused selection of works, including both paintings and drawings, the show will consider the past decade of the artist’s career, with an eye to the cast of characters—both humans and animals alike—that Alexander employs with frequency. Seemingly relatable at first glance, the compositions become increasingly complex as multiple meanings, both humorous and dark, emerge with prolonged examination.
