Dr. Eric Avery,

FL3TCH3R Exhibit 2016 Juror


Dr. 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 including the British Museum, London; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
