The East Carolina University Student Activities Board will host two art exhibits in August and September at Mendenhall Student Center’s second floor gallery.
On display through Aug. 28 is “Cupcake Jungle,” a collaboration between ceramicist Kyle Rees and metalsmith/jewelry designers Joshua Craig and Laritza Garcia. The exhibition includes a collection of brightly-colored homemade bowls in porcelain and metal.
Real cupcakes will be served during the exhibit’s closing reception, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 26 in the Mendenhall gallery.
Following the close of “Cupcake Jungle,” an exhibition focused on travel and discovery will be presented in the gallery. The exhibit, “Get out. Go Somewhere,” opens with a reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 9.
The exhibit’s creator was Dan Willet, an ECU graduate student in the School of Art and Design’s photography program. Willet worked with nationally acclaimed artist Sam Yates to juror the exhibit. Yates will provide student critiques and present a lecture on his work at 6 p.m., Sept. 8 in Mendenall.
“Get out. Go Somewhere” will run through Sept. 30.
