KENNESAW, Ga. (October 16, 2013) —
Kennesaw State University’s School of Art and Design is launching the Fall Senior Art Exhibitions from October 28 to December 5 in the Zuckerman Museum of Art's Fine Arts Satellite Gallery in the Joe Mack Wilson Building. There will be two separate exhibitions, the first running from Oct. 28 – Nov. 9 and the second from Nov. 18 – Dec. 5. The opening receptions will take place on Oct. 28 and Nov. 18, from 5-8 p.m. on both days.
The exhibitions will showcase the work of students graduating this semester with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as several students graduating with degrees in art education. Many concentrations will be represented, including ceramics, painting, drawing, digital media, printmaking and sculpture. Students’ family members and friends, along with artists and arts professionals from the Metro Atlanta arts community, will have the opportunity to see the work of the School of Art and Design students as part of the students’ capstone projects.
Justin Rabideau, Director of the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art and Robert Sherer, Associate Professor of Art, co-organized the exhibitions. Rabideau sees these events as great opportunities for everyone, explaining that “this is a chance for the community to see the fantastic work produced by the School of Art and Design and it is also part of the students’ professional development. They learn the essential aspects of putting together an exhibition, such as the installation and the curatorial processes. They have to present their portfolios through the creation of a distinct body of work, and they learn through these steps about the creation of a cohesive exhibition. This ultimately prepares students to apply their knowledge upon completion of their degrees.”
The curriculum gives students hands-on experience in the world of exhibitions. They must articulate their vision to a curatorial committee and resolve installation challenges within the constraints of display space, all while organizing and marketing the opening event. The exhibitions are a platform to support the work that the students have put into learning and creating the art pieces they will present; it is their introduction to the public as emerging artists.
The exhibitions are also part of the Zuckerman Museum of Art’s objective to play a key role in building Kennesaw State University’s reputation as a vibrant educational, cultural and research institution, while serving as a bridge between the university and the community.
The first exhibition will showcase the work of the following students: Marlee Cox, Taylor Cox, Munroe d'Antignac, Jessica Fleming, Adam Hall, Joani Inglett, Thanh Lam and Stephanie White.
The second exhibition will showcase: Elise Akinson, Kristina Hamm, Dalia Hedic-Fific, Lucas Jankovsky, Lindsey Marr, Ashlyn Pope and Kamila Sanders.
Both of the exhibitions and opening receptions are free and open to the public; for more information, contact the Zuckerman Museum of Art at 770-499-3223 or online at zuckerman.kennesaw.edu.
