FSU Student Brittany Pendleton Donates Artwork “Peace and War” to FSU

FSU Student Brittany Pendleton Donates Artwork “Peace and War” to FSU
President Gibralter stands with Brittany Pendleton in front of her artwork “Peace and War.”

Frostburg State University student Brittany Pendleton has donated a digital arts collage titled “Peace and War” to FSU, which President Jonathan Gibralter has framed and displayed in the second-floor Hitchins hallway at FSU.

Pendleton created “Peace and War” for a project in Art 236 Digital Imaging. The Digital Art Collage Project allows students to showcase their Photoshop skills while working on a theme that is of personal interest. However, it is conceptually challenging in that they must create their own concept, choose a theme for their project and use metaphor and symbolic representation to create a visual narrative around that theme. Pendleton created a stunning digital giclee artwork (52 by 70 inches) that captured her feelings toward war, religion, freedom of expression and her childhood experiences.

Pendleton explains on her artist statement on the piece: We go to war to achieve PEACE, but destroy its name in the process of the Fight. PEACE is the only answer and solution for HARMONY in this world! Man-made wars will never produce PEACE and/or Universal Love. As humans, we can be dangerous animals in the name of “war” and hurt man, woman, child and other animal “creatures” on this earth. However, one day we WILL have to speak to all “creatures” and explain why we were so destructive. The simple question, “Will we be prepared for what they may have to say about our actions?”

Pendleton is a junior at FSU, pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
