Hodson Gallery to showcase work of four seniors

Monday, May 3, 2010

FREDERICK, Md.--Four Hood College seniors will showcase their artistic creations in the second of two senior thesis exhibitions April 30 through May 17.

Sarah Balukoff, Evan Kronenberg, Jeff Tarleton and Lisa Wells will display their works in Hood's Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center. A reception will be held May 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Balukoff's photographs are inspired by the classical Greek ideal of beauty. The models, portraying Greek mythological gods and goddesses in natural settings, illustrate the connection of all living things to each other.

Kronenberg's exhibit, "Music in Memory," uses visual art to express significant moments in the artist's life and the music he associates with those events. Each piece uses a prominent facial expression and color to convey emotions and thought processes developed in harmony with music.

Tarleton's exhibit, "My Hand, The Referee," reflect his love of sports, especially boxing. His acrylic paintings reflect the common characteristics--both are art forms that require extensive preparation and the development of a unique style, method and form--that for Tarleton exists between boxing and visual art.

Wells' ceramic exhibition, "Incisions," examines the parallels between a surgeon's hands to those of an artist. Her slab- and coil-built pieces depict moments from some of the most common surgical procedures, and examine what happens when reconstructive surgery is used to aid in healing.
