"Threefold," an exhibition of artwork by students at Frostburg State University, will be shown from Friday, April 11, through Wednesday, April 14, at FSU's Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery in the Fine Arts Building. An opening reception will be held Friday evening at 7 p.m.
The opening and exhibit are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Sunday through Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Anthony Gusilatar, an art and design major with a dual focus in painting and graphic design, will display portraits in oil that capture mood and expression through color and line. A 1997 graduate of Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, he will graduate in December with a B.F.A., a minor in art history and a Print Graphic Certificate.
Jedediah Hollis Jerome Smith will show photographs captured in a studio setting that enables him to control the atmosphere. He uses intense light to highlight the "hills" and "valleys" of the human form in black and white tones. Recent color photos use a black light to create unusual effects in depicting the body. Smith will graduate in May with a B.F.A. in photography and graphic design, with a minor in art history.
Elizabeth Pumpaly, who has worked as an intern with the Cumberland Times-News, expresses her love of the outdoors in her photographs. She intentionally distorts images to create a mysterious, surrealistic effect. Pumpaly will graduate in May with a B.F.A. in photography and graphic design, plus a minor in art history.
