Fayetteville artist Jeannie Hulen will unveil a new art installation entitled Made in the USA at Joy Pratt Markham Gallery inside Walton Arts Center next week.

An opening reception for the exhibition is set for Thursday, Feb. 2 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the gallery.

The installation is comprised of a hand-built terra-cotta nude figure modeled after the artist’s daughter. The girl stands in a contemplative pose surrounded by slip-cast porcelain cars molded from plastic children’s toys.

Made in the USA is intended to be a companion to Hulen’s installation Made in Taiwan that exhibited in 2009 at Tainan National University of The Arts, in Tainan, Taiwan.

After the opening reception on Feb. 2, the installation will be on display through April 22.
