Gallery exhibit features MFA candidate

Thursday, April 12, 2012

FREDERICK, Md.—Sculptural and functional art work depicting coral imagery in stoneware and porcelain forms will be featured an exhibit April 20 through June 10 in the Whitaker Campus Center at Hood College.

“Coralations Evolving” is by Evgnia-Vallentia D. Rementelas, who is pursuing a master of fine art in ceramic arts. The opening reception and artist talk will be April 21 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Inspired by the beauty and the structural integrity of a coral reef, Rementelas uses coral imagery to represent relationships that support, coexist and unite people to each other and to their environments. The exhibit is a reflection of the artist’s personal growth and development and is meant to illustrate how a supportive community of family and friends has enabled her to thrive.

Rementelas earned a bachelor of fine arts in ceramics from James Madison University and a graduate certificate in ceramic arts from Hood.
