First of four student exhibits opens in Hodson Gallery

Monday, March 5, 2012

FREDERICK, Md.—Three student artists will display original works of art March 23 through April 1 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.

The opening reception for the senior exhibitions and gallery talks by the artists will be March 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Laced-Up” is a collection of clay and mixed media sculptures by senior art student Arpie A. Avanessi. Each piece is intricately detailed and decorated to mimic the feminine frills found in corsets, which signifies for the artist today’s female ideal influenced by the media and entertainment industries.

Shannon Sullivan, in her collection of pastel drawings titled “Eschatology,” juxtaposes unusual vibrant colors to create dynamic moods. Her compositions are intended to poke fun at the abundance of apocalypse theories that fail to materialize and to encourage the viewer to take a more realistic or positive outlook.

Lindsay Washington will display “Love Story,” a series of photos that tell the story of two people falling in love. Her work reflects her interests in people, emotions and personality.
