Senior art exhibition to showcase variety of styles on Armstrong Campus
Art can be expressed in many different forms, and that versatility will be on full display Nov. 12 through 30 during GAMUT, a senior exhibition on the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus in Savannah.
GAMUT features the work of student artists Kathryn Percival, Anthony Caracci, Hannah Moore and Antonio Singleton and will present pieces consisting of acrylic paintings on glass, Raku sculpture and pottery, comics, artist’s merchandise, and an imaginative café setting.
One corner of the gallery will exhibit the design work of Percival’s immersive café environment, complete with the branded material of an imaginative establishment titled “The Bombastic Kit•Tea Cat Café.” Its imagery and aesthetics are intended to be reminiscent of the Victorian/Edwardian lithographic poster era and aims to reinforce the playful whimsy and novelty of the cat café.
The floor space will exhibit the sculpture and wheel-thrown pottery of Caracci. Pedestals will showcase his favored Raku fired techniques in ceramics.
“Seasons” by Moore consists of acrylic paintings of natural landscapes on a glass surface, which are exhibited in a manner that shifts the viewer’s perspective.
Singleton’s “Discovery” shows the process of creating a brand and style for illustration design. It showcases sections from his sketchbook as well as the digital process of creating illustration brand style. The goal is to show an illustrator’s behind the scenes process from conception to final designs.
The gallery will be open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a reception is scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 30, with a brief talk by the artists at 6 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
