‘MMIX’ Art Exhibition Showcases FSU Seniors’ Talent
03/31/2009

“MMIX,” an exhibition featuring art work by Frostburg State University seniors Erin Cunningham, Michelle Nash, Kristina Schurg, Sarah Sine and Monika Wertman, will be on view from April 11 through April 15 in the Stephanie Ann Roper Fine Arts Gallery. An opening reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 11, in the gallery.

Cunningham, a Walkersville High School graduate, will receive her B.F.A. in art and design with a concentration in graphic design at the conclusion of the spring 2009 semester. She will also graduate with a minor in art history. Her expressive use of color and texture allows her art work to communicate with viewers on two distinct levels: through her own fears and the fears of the viewers.

Nash, a Hammond High School graduate, will receive her B.F.A. in art and design with a concentration in graphic design and photography in spring 2009. Her work mostly consists of detailed portraits of objects found in nature. These intimate portraits engage and inspire the viewer through the use of organic lines and vibrant colors.

Schurg, a Beall High School graduate, will receive her B.F.A. in art and design, with a concentration in graphic design at the conclusion of the spring 2009 semester. She will also graduate with a minor in art history. Her work focuses on conveying a message and creating an atmosphere through the use of images and type.

Sine, a Frankfort High School graduate, will receive her B.F.A. in art and design with a concentration in sculpture in spring 2009. She creates functional sculptures that show off the beauty of the material from which they are constructed. Her work is intended to collect the scuffs and scrapes from years of use as well as the aged, patched look from tender care.

Wertman, an Eichendorff Gymnasium (Germany) graduate, will receive her B.F.A. in art and design with a concentration in photography and painting and a minor in art history at the conclusion of the spring 2009 semester. Her work consists of portraiture depicted in the 1930s/1940s Hollywood aesthetic of photographer George Hurrell and is influenced by the Art Deco style of Jean-Gabriel Domergue.

Art works will be available for purchase from the artists throughout the duration of the exhibition. The Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery has free admission and is open to the public Sunday through Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information about the show, please contact FSU Department of Visual Arts at 301-687-4797.
