The SCAD exhibitions department presents “Beyond the Frame,” an exhibition spanning the fine art and design practice of the Alabama-based artist Nall. Over a successful, 40-year career, Nall has seamlessly positioned himself for both regional and international appeal, with a sprawling body of work that has proven translatable to a variety of media – paintings, costumes and china – and a variety of venues – the museum, the stage, the home. This exhibition examines how he masterfully combines all spectrums into a cohesive oeuvre. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
