Terrance Hayes: RENDER

October 19 - December 8, 2013

Terrance Hayes is a renowned artist, the recipient of many awards and honors, however, the art he is most famous for is not the art he is exhibiting at the Melega. The world knows Terrance Hayes as a poet and educator, we would like to introduce you to Terrance Hayes the painter.  In 2010, Hayes became the second youngest author to receive the National Book Award for Poetry. The poet Cornelius Eady described the poetry of Terrance Hayes as “unblinking truth-telling”. A term that is also a perfect description of Hayes’ paintings.
