Kaiser presents BFA exhibition at Gallery 33 West
Artist Kimberly Kaiser, a BFA candidate at Georgia Southern University, will open her Senior Exhibition on Wednesday, Oct. 24, in Gallery 33 West on West Main Street in downtown Statesboro. The exhibition will continue through Wednesday, Oct. 31. A reception will be held Friday, Oct. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Kaiser, who is a native of Bulloch County, will graduate in December 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with emphasis in photography and a minor in philosophy.
In addition to her experiences at Georgia Southern, she has studied visual arts and design at Valdosta State and traveled to China and Vietnam to study and create.
Her exhibition, “Ariadne’s Thread” is a mixed-media installation that explores the visible and invisible threads that link us to particular people, places, or moments in time. The work is an exploration of these connections, the way in which they are perceived, and the material and conceptual act of weaving the delicacy of our senses within our memories themselves. Through video installation and mixed-media photography, Ariadne’s Thread offers participants the opportunity to experience the transformation of a captured moment in time into a tactile memory that can be woven within a collection of others in the remaking of the past and the present”a re-creation of self.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours for Gallery 33 West are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.�to 5 p.m. Appointments to view any show are welcomed. Please call Susan Huelsewiesche at (912) 541-2842 or Greg Carter at (912) 486-0875.
