Annual juried exhibitions to showcase artwork of BFSDoArt students
The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art (BFSDoArt) at Georgia Southern University will present its two annual juried student exhibitions March 30 – April 6 at the Center for Art & Theatre on the Statesboro Campus. Receptions and awards ceremonies will begin Friday, March 30 at 5 p.m.
The Juried Undergraduate exhibition will be on view in the Contemporary Gallery. The artwork in this exhibition will feature the variety of media taught within the department, which includes drawing, painting, jewelry, multimedia, mixed media, photography, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. The exhibition will be juried by Ashley Zelinskie, an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Zelinskie’s work spans a variety of media from sculpture and small metals to computer programs, and has been shown both nationally and internationally.
The Form & Content exhibition will be on view in the University Gallery. It will feature student work from Art Foundations classes that include Drawing I, 2D Design, 3D Design, and Digital Foundations. This exhibition will be juried by Michael Marks, an associate professor at the South Carolina School of the Arts at Anderson University. He works across a range of materials and techniques, and his creative pieces have been shown nationally and internationally in more than 75 exhibitions.
“The Juried Undergraduate and Form & Content exhibitions are among my favorite each year,” said BFSDoArt Gallery Director Jason Hoelscher. “To have the dynamic range of art and design projects all together in the tight confines of two galleries is a real treat, showing just how many directions creativity can flow.”
