Frostburg State University presents “Atomic Philosophy”, a student art exhibition starting Friday, Nov. 19, with an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Stephanie Anne Roper Art Gallery.
This bachelor of fine arts exhibition will feature the works of Beth Johnson, Corinne Knight, Dan Martin, Robert Van Tassell III and Sandra Martin.
Johnson has a dual studio focus in photography and ceramics with a minor in art history. Her photography is architectural and landscape-based on a dynamic perspective. Her ceramics are decorative and functional, created with experimental firing techniques. She will be displaying several of her photographs and ceramic artwork.
Knight has a focus in painting with a minor in art history. Her paintings and other two-dimensional artworks are figurative-based with an emotional backbone. The artworks are an evolution of movement and color. She will be displaying acrylic and oil paintings as well as prints.
Martin has a focus in sculpture with a minor in art history. His sculptures employ a variety of media including metal, wood and plastic. His current series consists of small sculptures that have a rough and weathered surface that remind him of “something that may have been dredged up from the bottom of a lake.”
Van Tassell has a dual focus in Graphic Design And Sculpture. The artwork he will be displaying will range from graphic design to industrial design to sculpture. “Inventive in order to communicate an idea” will be the prevailing theme throughout his artwork. His goal is to show work that will help him describe the concept of “industrial naturalist.”
Martin has a focus in sculpture with a minor in art history. Her artwork is termed sculptural ceramics; however, the work itself cannot easily be defined or understood. The goal of her art is to be interesting to study as well as an expression of her unconscious psyche. Sandra will be displaying several of her unique sculptural ceramic creations.
The gallery will be open to the public from Friday, Nov. 19, to Wednesday, Nov. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call the Visual Arts Department at 301-687-4797.
