Georgia Southern art education seniors to host exhibition, discuss art’s role in education
Georgia Southern University’s Senior Art Exhibition, “Mosaic,” featuring artwork by four senior artists, will run from April 22 to May 3 at the Fine Arts Gallery on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah. A reception will be held on May 3 at 5:30 p.m., and admission is free and open to the public.
Senior artists Frances Wright-Tellado, Briana Pritchard, Kylie Mitchell and Meghan Walton will exhibit a variety of sculptures, drawings, paintings and digital media that showcase the knowledge and skills they’ve gained in the fine arts program.
“With the help of my Mosaic team, I was able to create my own absurd world of art in the gallery space,” senior artist Frances Wright-Tellado said.
During the reception, artists will address their inspiration and process, as well as discuss how they intend to use their acquired knowledge and artistic abilities in their careers as educators.
“As future educators, it is important that we are knowledgeable in a variety of techniques and media,” said senior art education student Briana Pritchard. “Mosaic showcases our skills and our passion to share what we’ve learned to future generations of artists.”
