Diverse exhibit to showcase Georgia Southern Armstrong Campus seniors’ art
Soft sculptures, ceramics, fiber design, multimedia installation and photography will be on display for “The Art of Feeling,” presented by the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art on the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus. The exhibit will showcase the terminal work of five graduating art students: Jacqueline Claros, Brione Daniels, Chance Everett, Christine Freeman and Blair Perry.
“‘The Art of Feeling’ is an exciting exploration of the senses,” Everett, a fiber artist, said. “It is exciting to see that our group has come together to develop visual art that can be felt in so many different ways.”
Exhibit-goers can expect to explore tactile works, some of which are inspired by the artist’s volunteer work with the sight impaired. Soft sculptures bringing imaginative characters into life and flowing fabrics enhanced with inventive patterns that invoke the four seasons will also be on display. The collective also features thoughtful portrayals of figures through photography and a chance to appreciate the world around us seen in fungi-inspired pottery.
Claros’ series, “United by Touch,” features mixed media pieces that allow each gallery goer a unique experience in audio, visual and tactile forms. “Sense Form,” a series of portraits by Daniels, uses high contrast nudes in an exploration of figural form. Everett will display his hand made soft sculptures in the series “Crafty Creatures.” Defined by her usage of organic and fluid shapes, Freeman creates surface designs for various types of fabric. Perry’s sculptural pottery is inspired by southeastern fungi and celebrates the beauty in decay.
The exhibition will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays April 1 through 12 at the Fine Arts Gallery on the Armstrong Campus. A reception will be held April 12 at 5:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, go to cah.georgiasouthern.edu/art/outreach-events/fine-arts-gallery.
