Frenchtown artist Shea Hembrey was born into a family of farmers, factory workers, hunters, trappers, musicians, and cockfighters in Hickory Grove, Arkansas. He went on to receive an MFA from Cornell, and in 2011, a TED Talk featured his acclaimed project SEEK. Hembrey's exhibition at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in Manhattan visualizes his 20 year exploration of dark matter and dark energy.
