Toni Todd featured in the 2014 College Juried Exhibit
As if preparing for Student Made and her Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Exhibition wasn’t enough, 2D Studio major Toni Todd also spent her final college semester building her portfolio by submitting her artwork to various exhibitions.
Her hard work paid off – Toni was accepted into The Art Place – Mountain View’s 2014 College Juried Exhibit that was on display from April 11 to May 2. Juried by Licha Ochoa Nicholson, Anita Ronin-Hunter and Heather Lund, Toni was 1 of 24 students accepted into the exhibition out of over 100 entries. The only exhibiting artist from Georgia Southern University, Toni was alongside students from Kennesaw State University, University of West Georgia, Morehouse College, Georgia State University, University of Georgia and Savannah College of Art & Design.
Each of Toni’s four submissions from her Human Experience series, which are photorealism charcoal drawings, were accepted into the exhibition.
“My professor, Patricia Carter, told my class about the College Juried Exhibition. Throughout our studio courses and professional practices course, she urged us to gain experience and seek opportunities to expand our knowledge of the art world,” said Todd.
The Art Place – Mountain View is a facility of Cobb County Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department. They seek to encourage fine arts programs that will enhance and promote processes of artistic merit. This is done by fostering creativity in each individual rather than the emphasis on a finished product. Their facility has spaces designed to be flexible for visual and performing arts activities and also offers gallery exhibitions, theatre productions and meeting space for non-profit arts-related organizations.
