Screws opens senior exhibition May 14 at Averitt
Georgia Southern University Bachelor of Fine Arts candidate Jason Screws will open his senior exhibition, Optic, Monday, May 14 in the Legends Gallery of Statesboro’s Averitt Center for the Arts. A reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Sponsored by the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, the exhibition will continue through Friday, May 18.
Screws is a native of Atlanta and graduated from South Gwinnett High School. As a student in the Department of Art, Screws has concentrated his studies in photography. His vocational goal is to become a wildlife filmmaker. Optic is a photography-video based installation that creates an interaction between viewing and being viewed. Screws writes, ‘My work began from a fascination with eyes and turned into an exploration of that fascination. This work is made to confront the audience in order to provide a feeling or a thought about their world that may not have been experienced before.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The Averitt Center for the Arts is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Gallery programming in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art is supported by Georgia Southern University Student Activity Fees.
