FALL 2017 UNDERGRADUATE EXHIBITION
Wellington B. Gray Gallery
October 6 – 26 2017

Awards Ceremony, Friday, October 6, 4:00 p.m. in Speight Auditorium.

The annual East Carolina University School of Art and Design Undergraduate Exhibition will be on view in the Wellington B. Gray Gallery from October 6 through 26, 2017.  Area curriculum coordinators in the School of Art and Design select the outstanding works submitted from over 400 undergraduate students.. The Awards Ceremony will take place Friday, October 6 at 4:00 p.m. in Speight Auditorium of the Jenkins Fine Arts Building. This year’s awards judge, Michelle Harrell, will announce the winners. The opening reception will follow immediately in the gallery.

Michelle Harrell is the Director of Teaching and Learning at the North Carolina Museum of Art. She received her Associate of Arts degree from Peace College and her BFA and MAEd from East Carolina University. After 13 years of teaching middle and high school art, she began a position in 2010 to develop distance learning programs at the NCMA. She now supervises the education team responsible for learning experiences from camps, tours, online programs, lectures, outreach, and teacher professional development. Michelle is passionate about increasing access to art experiences to share her passion for art with others. Through her paintings, prints, and journaling, she searches to capture both the sense of place and the physical mosaic of brushstrokes and interplay of colors. Michelle uses heightened color to create an emotional intuitive response to highly personal subject matter, often landscapes of my childhood. Light saturated with color creates sense of place in both her memory (emotional response) and the atmospheric effect of season and time of day.

East Carolina University features the largest studio art program in North Carolina, which is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).  Curriculum areas represented in the show are: animation,  art foundations, ceramics, cinema, drawing, graphic design, illustration, interactive media, metals, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textile design, and video.

The Wellington B. Gray Gallery is located off of Fifth and Jarvis Streets on the campus of East Carolina University in the Jenkins Fine Arts Center.  Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  and Saturday from 10:00 a.m.to 2:00 p.m. The gallery is closed for all university holidays.  The  Jenkins Fine Arts Center is handicapped accessible.

The 2017 Hermitage State Teachers Artist Residencies Press Release:

The Hermitage Artist Retreat, along with its partner the Florida Alliance for Arts Education (FAAE) are proud to announce the winners of its State Teachers Artist Residencies (STARs) for 2017. They are Brian Capley, a creative writing teacher from Osceola County School for the Arts (Osceola Cty.); Jennifer Gironda, visual arts teacher at Lake Worth High School (Palm Beach Cty.); Kathleen Holt, visual arts teacher from Seminole High School (Seminole Cty.); Gerald Obregon, visual arts teacher at Arthur & Molly Mays Conservatory of the Arts (Miami-Dade Cty.) and Sandra Stiles, creative writing teacher at Louise R. Johnson Middle School for International Studies (Manatee Cty.). The STARs program takes place in the summer and allows Florida Arts Educators to apply for artist residencies, through FAAE, in order to pursue their own art. Applications are open to all Florida arts teachers in music, visual art and creative writing. Since the beginning of the program in 2011, 35 STARs have represented 19 Florida counties. Residencies last for three weeks and culminate with a free community program on the Hermitage campus, 6660 Manasota Key Road, Englewood. This year’s program is scheduled for Friday, July 28 at 7:00 p.m.

“The Hermitage is so proud of this program,” remarked Bruce E. Rodgers, Hermitage executive director. “Arts teachers are artists who are challenged to find time to pursue their craft. Our STAR program gives them the rare opportunity to live among artists as artists themselves and work on their art. No papers to grade, no curriculum to plan or implement. They leave our environment feeling appreciated and energized and these benefits go back with them into their classrooms. We look forward to seeing what this latest group of STARs will create.”

“It is a great privilege to have these fine educators come and be inspired by our Hermitage surroundings as well as each other,” continued Rodgers. “The Hermitage is proud to be able to offer this gift of time and space to artists who give so generously of themselves during the school year.”

The Hermitage is a not-for-profit artist retreat located at 6660 Manasota Key Road in Englewood, FL.  It invites accomplished painters, sculptors, writers, playwrights, poets, composers and other artists from all over the world for residencies on its beachfront historic campus. Artists are asked to interact with the community during their stay and as a result, Hermitage artists touch thousands of Gulf Coast community residents with unique and inspiring programs each year. Hermitage community programs are partially sponsored by Philanthropist Gerri Aaron, the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida (Section 286.25, Florida Statutes). In addition, the Hermitage awards and administers the prestigious Greenfield Prize, an annual $30,000 commission for a new work of art, rotating among visual art, music and drama. The Hermitage also partners with the Aspen Music Festival and School to award the annual Hermitage Prize to a composition student during the Festival.
