Department of Art and Design faculty members Julie Bowland, Evelyn Davis-Walker, Clyde Edwards, Mark Errol, Craig Hawkins, Abigail Heuss, Selena Nawrocki, Taylor Shaw and Kaleena Stasiak selected the individual pieces for the ‘exposure.
Julie Bowland, Gallery Director, said Make / Mark “showcases exemplary student artwork created in foundation courses. This exhibition presents first-year students the honor of departmental recognition within the Art & Design Department. Additionally, the exhibit provides students, faculty, and guests with a way to understand the objectives of each course and the learning outcomes for each task on display.
“The foundation program fosters the understanding and application of the basics of design, creative and analytical thinking, and problem solving. Core courses, which all art and design department majors take in their first two years, are essential for pursuing a visual arts program.
VSU’s Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery is located on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building at the intersection of Oak Street and Brookwood Drive. It is open from 11:35 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays; from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; and from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
Make / Mark will run until Friday, November 5th. Guests are strongly encouraged to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth inside the gallery.
