March 30: Gallery features art work by three seniors

Friday, March 30, 2012

FREDERICK, Md.—Three student artists will display original works of art April 6-15 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.

The opening reception and gallery talks by the artists will be April 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

"Emotivation" is a collection of acrylic and oil paintings by senior art student Leigh Hopkins. She uses bold colors and close-up angles to create figurative and abstract representations of human figures and to illustrate communication through body language.

"Action Reaction," a series of oil paintings by Harold Rivas, is a study of attention-grabbing action scenes paired with paintings that illustrate a crowd's emotional response to the actions. The painting pairs are interchangeable, allowing viewers to select, based on experiences, the painting that best illustrates a reaction to an action.

High-contrast black and white ink drawings comprise "Illuminance" by Brittney Triplett. She employs crisp, clean, bold lines to create abstract representations of natural and man-made lights that, for the artist, serve as a symbol of inspiration, motivation and forward motion.
