FSU Students Present "Halogen," an Exhibit of Print, Web and Multimedia Design

"Halogen," a dynamic presentation of print, Web and multimedia design work by seven designers from Frostburg State University, will be on exhibit Friday, Dec. 8, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery at FSU as part of the Fall 2000 Portfolio Night. The portfolios of these FSU seniors range from surreal digital art to clean, progressive imagery.

The exhibitors are Robert Coburn, Michael Schade, Brad Berline, Julie Watkins, Richard Gilbert, Russell Redinger and Christopher Bruno

Coburn graduated from Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville, Md., in 1997. He will be graduating in the December of 2001 with a BFA and a concentration in graphic design and a minor in art history. The electronic music scene and powerful, streamlined graphics heavily influence his work. His graphics attempt to expand the connection between the visually based world and the world of advertisement and graphic design.

Schade, a 1996 graduate of Oldtown High School, is anticipating graduation in December of 2000 with a BFA focused in graphic design. His clean, linear designs range from logos to Web design and multimedia. He is currently an intern for Pat D'Atri at D'Atri D'Sign.

Berline graduated from Towson High School in 1997. He is studying graphic design and art history. Next semester, he will be interning at McClarran and Williams in Cumberland, Md. He will graduate in May of 2001 with a BFA in Art and Design. Berline strives to achieve visual impact through strong graphics; his concentration is on graphics with an interest in photography.

Watkins, a 1993 graduate of Allegany High School in Cumberland, has a concentration in graphic design and an art history minor. She has five years of professional experience, having interned at D'Atri D'Sign and working for a variety of groups such as AmeriCorps, FSU's Theatre Department and Penn Alps. Watkins is currently working for FSU's Cultural Events Series as well as Rhetoric Fonts, an electric type and image company based in White Plains, Md.

Gilbert graduated from Annapolis High School in 1996. He will graduate in May 2001 with a BFA in graphic design and a minor in art history. For the past three years, he has enjoyed doing print and multimedia freelance design for Concept 4 Inc. Electronic music, cutting-edge technology and minimalist art are evident in his designs. Gilbert's portfolio shows his diverse work experience and innovative style. His objective is to create an appealing and dynamic design that caters to the viewer's perceptions.

Redinger is a 1995 graduate of Fort Hill High School who will be graduating from FSU in December of 2000. He presents his print and graphic art in a surreal, biomechanical style. His designs are created using powerful three-dimensional imagery that fuses the worlds of man and machine. Redinger also works in the fine arts fields of painting, printmaking and sculpture.

Bruno graduated from the Newport School in Kensington, Md., in 1996. He will exhibit works from his focuses in multimedia and Web design, as well as a variety of print works. He studied under the late Peggy Hilton, who had encouraged him to pursue a career in graphic design. Bruno intends to take a design internship in Spring of 2001, which will precede his graduation in May 2001.

The "Halogen" exhibit is free and open to the public. High school students interested in going into graphic design or professionals already in the field are especially invited to attend.
