Senior artists combine talents in new exhibit, “Mechanism,” on Armstrong Campus this spring

The Department of Art at the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus will host undergraduate Spring 2018 Senior Exhibitions during March and April in the Fine Arts Gallery in Savannah.

“Mechanism: Five Different Parts Working Together as a Whole,” a cohesive art exhibition designed by five Georgia Southern senior art students, will be on display at the Fine Arts Gallery on the Armstrong Campus March 28 through April 11. An artist talk and reception will be held Friday, April 6, 5:30-7 p.m.

“Mechanism” is all about mediums coming together to give the audience an exciting experience. Artists will display art forms in photography, ceramics and graphic design, all melded together to encourage audience interaction and provoke thought.

Seniors Addie Blackstock, Cameron Frost, Danielle Girardeau, Joseph Shaw and Nicole Stevens have combined their best artwork for this unique show. Each artist has used their unique background and artistic experience to add different components to the exhibit.

“It is an artist’s job to offer the world their perspective,” said Frost. “I seek to show the world the element of fire in a humanized form.”

Stevens added, “It is valid to say that the full potential of a piece of work is sometimes only visible through the process of its destruction. By destroying my art, I am able to have a liberating experience by letting go.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Fine Arts Gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the exhibition.
