"Studio/Active: Advanced Studio Exhibition"
September 29 – October 17, 2014
H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery
Reception: Thursday October 2nd 4-6 pm
The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery at El Centro College announces its annual exhibition of advanced student work, “Studio/Active: Advanced Studio Exhibition”. After previous shows in which every student in the advanced courses participated (last year had 42 works from 33 artists), this year’s show will be a tightly curated installation of works by 7 artists, representing the best from the advanced studio courses at El Centro.
Media submitted will range from advanced drawing to painting, ceramics, digital imaging, mixed media and installation. The goal of this exhibition is to foster professional practices in the work of our advanced fine art students, and as such, they will each prepare artist statements and a short gallery talk for the reception.
Student artists in this year’s exhibition include:
Brandon Farrington – figure drawing
Robert Garza – digital prints and 3-d constructions
Isiah McGrew – figure drawing and painting
Andrew Phinisee – fashion-themed mixed media work
Brenda Soto – sculptural ceramic objects
Jared Walker – ceramic vessels
Amy Werntz – figure drawing
