McDaniel College’s Department of Art and Art History presents “Vaguely Graphic Materials,” the first of its two senior capstone exhibitions, April 23 through May 3 in the Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall. The show will feature art from students working in digital media and graphic design. The artists’ reception will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. April 23.
“Light has the ability to alter your perceptions, opinions, and emotions,” observes Catherine Brooks-Kenney. Her mixed media sculptures aim “to figuratively and literally illuminate the intimate emotional reactions within the very personal moments.”
Julio Melendez says his work “follows the art and styles found in comic books and comic strips.” His drawings and digital media combine picture panels and text “in order to tell a straightforward story while having its own artistic elements as the story develops. Every panel is drawn and inked by hand and the lettering and coloring were done using modern computer software to create artistic techniques that would be difficult to do by hand.”
Drawing and digital media artist Graham Miles’ work “deals with the human reaction to big and small things. From the fleeting moments of irrational emotion attached to insignificant situations, to the feeling of powerlessness associated with events larger than ourselves.”
William Paulshock works with digital media to create “professional package designs. My work uses the many techniques that I have developed from my time here at McDaniel College.”
Other students who will be displaying work include digital media artists Sarah Higby, Jessica Kinn, and Dave Stout, and digital video artist Colin Shorter.
The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. For information and to confirm gallery hours, please call 410-857-2595.
