Three of Frostburg State University's graduating artists will exhibit their works in the gallery opening of "Laleh" from May 4 to 9. The exhibition will consist of works by Elizabeth Kirby, Carmen Guido, and Sherene Rezaiyan displaying paintings, ceramic vessels and sculptures, as well as several pieces unrelated to their majors. "Laleh" will open in the Roper Gallery in FSU's Fine Arts building at 7 p.m. Friday, May 4.
Each of the artists has focused on painting. They have developed varying styles and techniques, yet each represents underlying symbolism with aesthetic purity. Carmen Guido uses hallways and familiar objects to represent the emotions encountered during the decisions and trails of life. Abstract houses of simple line and color are Sherene Rezaiyan's way of representing the peace of home and family. Along with a variety of symbolic works, Elizabeth Kirby will exhibit scenes from her trips to Ireland, a selection of dish sets, canisters and uniquely carved vessels.
The exhibition is an opportunity for the artists to display what they have learned in their years at Frostburg. It also provides them with an entrance into the professional art world. The public is invited to join the artists at the opening or any of the days following to view and discuss their work. A majority of the pieces displayed will also be for sale.
