The Department of Visual Arts at Frostburg State University announces the opening of the Senior Portfolio Exhibit, “The Seventh Dimension,” on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Stephanie Ann Roper Arts Gallery located in the Fine Arts Building.
The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, includes work by six graphic design seniors pursuing bachelor of fine arts degrees in art and design.
A specialist in Web design and multimedia, James Derdock will graduate in December. Influenced by the fast-paced and ever-changing world of the Internet and the exponential growth of technology, Derdock has created a style that reflects the hi-tech world.
Mary Gorge will graduate in December with a minor in art history. While her main focus is graphic design, Gorge is also works in painting, drawing, ceramics and photography. On occasion, her work has been on display in the Allegany Arts Council Gallery in Cumberland.
Adam Hughson, who will graduate next spring, has a minor in art history. He has applied his interests in other types of art, including photography, printmaking and drawing, into his graphic design work. Most of his portfolio consists of logo design, business packages and an interactive Web page featuring a mechanical style with 3-dimensional shapes and a clean-cut, linear design. He plans pursue a full-time internship in the spring and perform freelance work with different art firms.
Natalie McKenzie will graduate in December with a minor in art history. She uses abstract colors, organic and geometric shapes to create a style characterized by simplicity and minimalism.
Charles Owens, Jr. plans to graduate next spring. His design interests include Web design, animation and graphics.
After graduating in next spring, Anthonie Ruffin will pursue a master’s degree in studio art/ graphic design at Towson University. His Web sites and graphic design work features 3-dimensional designs, text and digital animation.
