Kimberly Riner, Memento Mori (solo exhibition) - Artist Talk, September 19 @ 5pm

Kimberly Riner creates installations of ceramic-based sculptures that explore our mortality. She references the 16th/17th-century idea of the vanitas or vanity genre from the Netherlands that uses various symbols in still life paintings to remind us of the fragility of life and, by extension, the worthlessness of accumulating possessions. Riner's work examines and updates these forms of vanity for the 21st century.

Kimberly Riner holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts in 3-D art with an emphasis on ceramics from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. She has an active exhibition record with her work being shown in cultural centers, universities, and museums throughout the United States and in England. Recent exhibitions include the group exhibition Form and Function at 567 Gallery in Macon, Ga., and her solo exhibition Human Fragility at Furman University in Greenville, S.C. She has also served as a juror and curator for several exhibitions. Kimberly Riner is the Visual Arts Director at the Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro and is on the faculty at Georgia Southern University.
