April 23: Student paintings, photography, ceramics featured in gallery show

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

FREDERICK, Md.—Original works by three student artists will be on display April 30 through May 11 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.

The opening reception for the senior exhibitions May 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.; artists' gallery talks begin at 6:30 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Under the Clouds showcases the photography of Caitie Schultheis of Boonsboro, Md. Inspired by the time she spent outdoors as a child, her nature and landscape images include colorful leaves, dramatic sunlight and linear perspective. Schultheis' photos of changing seasons represent the changes that occur throughout life.

Washington, D.C., native Colleen Sparks Albrecht's exhibit, Treasure Bay, focuses on the ecological habitats and species that live and depend on the Chesapeake Bay. She uses a variety of media—digital art and oil and watercolor paintings—to illustrate and bring public awareness to the importance of the bay and the surrounding watershed.

Earth Tones, an exhibit by Matthew Burdick of Frederick, features various ceramic musical instruments inspired by cultures around the globe. Burdick used molding, extrusion and throwing techniques to create instruments such as didgeridoos, inspired by those created by Aboriginal Australians, and udus, traditionally made by Nigerian women—instruments that continue to be made as they have for thousands of years. The exhibit also includes more recently invented instruments such as ocarinas and the huaca, and traditional instruments such as flutes and horns.
