Popcorn is the nightly snack of choice at my home, but lately it has taken on a more symbolic nature.  The current election climate has left me feeling disconnected from the political process –as though my voice and vote don’t count.  It feels like I’m watching a movie, eating popcorn and yelling at the innocent girl to warn her that the bad guy looms just around the next corner.  This next Call strives to connect people to the political and social issues that comprises contemporary culture.  Take a look…

JUROR: Dr. Eric Avery is a celebrated printmaker and recently-retired physician who for decades has practiced medicine and art in tandem. His complexly layered work connects issues of printmaking and art history with social concerns of public health, human rights abuse and responses to HIV/AIDS, death, sexuality and the body.  Creating powerful historical records of experience with patients, he changes the ordinary role of a doctor into an artist inspired by healing, fusing the space between art and medicine.  Before his retirement, he was clinical associate professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and member of the Institute for Medical Humanities, The University of Texas Medical Branch, specializing in issues related to HIV/AIDS.  In addition to being the subject of numerous gallery exhibitions, Avery’s work is found in many prestigious permanent collections.
