Lois Norman is a British/Australian Creative Artist, whose work focuses on the bravery and diversity of the human condition. Primarily, using the Female word and image as a lens, she explores and questions the truth of who we are and the strength it takes to be all of who we can dare to be. She has developed a form of film that she terms Creative Documentary: a fuse of interview and the tastes of experimental film.

Her short documentary: Drawing on Speech which was created in collaboration with Tate Curator and Artist Michele Fuirer, was screened at Tate Britain and Tate Modern 2014/2015 and she has was invited to screen her first feature Creative Documentary, She Is Juiced, exploring the works of Artists Jo Hay, Ope Lori, Peta Lily and Sarah Jane Moon at Tate Britain in June 2017, as part of the ground-breaking Queer Britain Exhibition and the London Pride launch 2017.

One of Charleston's newest contemporary art galleries, Miller Gallery, presents an all-star lineup of artists in its upcoming February exhibit, Fire&Grace, in collaboration with the New Gallery of Modern Art of Charlotte, NC. 

The exhibit focuses on works by Hay, incorporating both her human and rabbit portraits, as well as works from her latest series, Persisters, which depicts societal influencers like Rachael Maddow and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Hay received her MFA from the New York Academy of Fine Art and was recently featured in Queer and Now at the Tate of London.

Hay's "lush" rabbits complement the sparse lines of Slonem's bunny series. According to a press release, Slonem wakes up each day and "warms up" by painting bunnies, finishing his pieces off with well-worn, repurposed, frames. The press releases also promises, "Relevant and visually powerful statements by Hay and Fairey will juxtapose the light-hearted rabbits created by roster artist Jo Hay and New Gallery of Modern Art’s Hunt Slonem." 

Fairey, as you probably know, is a Charleston native, best known as the artist by Obama's 2008 campaign "Hope" poster. You can see his murals in spots around town — check the building across from The Daily, as well as CofC's College Lodge on Calhoun Street.
