2017-18 Gallery Exhibition Schedule
Monday, February 19 – Friday, March 23, 2018
An exhibition of artists’ work focused on Scale.
This exhibit shows a wide variety of art mediums such as painting, prints, drawing, paper art, book arts, ceramics, enamel drawings, sculpture, installation art, graffiti and performance art. The installations were created by two artists who will create site specific work for the show. The event is a teaching lab exhibition.
“The concept for the ‘Scale’ show came from observing art students struggle with the issue of size and proportion in their art,” said curator and art professor Nancy Halbrooks. “Artists decide upon scale in their art in a multitude of ways. One way is the actual size of work, large (larger than life), medium (standard) or small (miniature). There is also the element of size of the imagery within the artwork space. Some mediums tend to dictate the size of the artwork. And then there is the issue of proportion and measurements, sizes of parts in the relationship of the whole.”
Featured artists include Blake Cook, Dennis Long, Catherine Rozmarynowycz, Russ Revock, Brinsley Tyrrell, Tony Trunzo, Diane Marrapese, Aimee Lee, Gene Epstein, Amy Fishbach, Rhodes Rozman, Tyler Heganbarth, Reid Wood, Ryan Craycraft, Stevie Tanner and Jan Zorman.
