Reception and Awards Ceremony
April 12, 2013
Center for Art & Theatre from 5 – 7 p.m.
The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art (BFSDoArt) invites you to join us April 12 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for the undergraduate exhibitions’ Artists Reception and Awards Ceremony! Free and open to the public, this event will recognize and celebrate extraordinary artwork completed by the Department’s undergraduate students. Light refreshments will be served.
Currently on display, the Foundations: Form & Content exhibition features exemplary works produced by students enrolled in art foundations courses with the Department.
“All Georgia Southern students pursuing a major in studio arts are required to take foundation courses that include drawing and two- and three-dimensional design,” said Marc Mitchell, gallery director and assistant professor in the BFSDoArt. “The rigorous coursework that comprises the foundations program helps to create the solid infrastructure needed for a career in the Fine Arts. The Foundations exhibition honors the effort of outstanding beginning art students and demonstrates the expectations placed on future students at BFSDoArt.”
Paul LaJeunesse, a member of the art department at Georgia State University in Atlanta, is the juror for the 2013 Foundations exhibition. LaJeunesse received a MFA in painting from Bowling Green State University in 2006, the Elizabeth Greenshields grant in 2006, and a Fulbright grant in 2007 to travel to Reykjavik and Siglufjördur, Iceland. He has exhibited in nationally and internationally, with recent solo exhibitions at Rogue Community College, Oregon; Idaho State University; The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology; Saitama University, Japan; and the Akane Gallery in Tokyo.
The Foundations: Form & Content will remain on display until April 19.
