"Daedalian," with artwork by Frostburg State University senior art students Melissa Field, Erin Gouldin and Kristin Warnick, will be on exhibit at the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery in the FSU Fine Arts Building beginning Friday, May 3.
The show will run from May 3 to Wednesday, May 8. An opening reception will be held at the gallery at 7 p.m. Friday, May 3. Regular gallery hours are Sundays through Wednesdays from noon to 4 p.m.
Field will display photographs, oil and watercolor paintings, and sculptural ceramics, emphasizing water themes and figurative studies. Along with her black and white photography, Field explores alternative processes, including cyanotypes, gum printing and Polaroid image transfers.
Through her focus in the field of ceramics and painting, Gouldin will exhibit sculptural and functional ceramics and abstract paintings. Gouldin's exploration of firing processes, whether soda, wood or reduction firing, demonstrates her capabilities as a ceramist.
Warnick, whose areas of focus are ceramics and photography, will exhibit sculptural and functional ceramics and black and white photography. With her ceramics, Warnick concentrates on the vessel as a canvas for her painterly stile, which is further enhanced by her use of sgraffito carving techniques. Her black and white photography portrays the painted body in a style similar to her ceramics, commenting on the idea of the body as a vessel.
