Art Grads to Open Last Gallery Showing as T-BirdsMarch 31, 2009
SUU's Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery will exhibit the work of this year's twenty art and design graduates in the Senior BFA Portfolio Show, opening this Thursday, April 2.
This annual display to showcase the talent and hard work of SUU's graduating artists is categorized into five mediums: photography, illustration, ceramics, graphic design and printmaking/painting/drawing. This exhibit will be open Tuesday through Saturday noon to 7:00 p.m., April 2-May 2, 2009. Admission is free and open to the public.
Scott Chandler, a senior photographer, is one of the featured artists in the BFA Portfolio Show. His work exhibits photographs of landscapes in which the rock formation are made out of his bed sheets. He used objects in his room in order to create these rock formations such as the Hilary Step of Mount Everest and Monument Valley in Arizona.
Another graduating artist, Frank Imler, has been devoting his studies to publication, identity, web, print, typography, publication and motion graphics design. He studied the negative space around between and around objects to create a layout and design. He also looks to other designers for inspiration and studies what could be done differently. Frank enjoys the graphic design field because it allows him to use his artistic talents in a real world setting
And Lindsay Houk, a senior graphic designer, will be displaying a collection of projects including packaging, bookmarking and branding. She has been doing graphic design work for about seven years and plans on later continuing her studies in graduate school.
These students are fine examples of the various interests and talents within this year's graduating class of artists and designers.
The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center building on the east end of the SUU campus. Admission is free. For more information, contact the Gallery at 435-586-5432.
The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is supported in part by the Friends of the Braithwaite Gallery, The Utah Arts Council, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
