Davin Ebanks to Exhibit Sculpture at Kent State’s Downtown Gallery
The work of Kent State University School of Art Assistant Lecturer Davin Ebanks will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Kent State School of Art’s Downtown Gallery, now through April 16. The exhibit, titled Luminous Forms, will feature several of the most current work Ebanks has made during the past academic year at Kent State.
Born on Grand Cayman in 1975, the artist spent many of his formative years on the water learning the lore of seafaring heritage from his grandfather. Many of the sculptures that will be on display are informed by his personal and cultural history. Ebanks makes sculptures out of glass that display his love of nature on both micro and macroscopic levels.
Ebanks was recently named a recipient of the 2016 Silver Heritage Cross by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation for contributions to creativity in the arts and 10 years “consistent and active, quality engagement in the preservation and/or celebration of Caymanian cultural heritage”
