EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF ART AND DESIGN FALL 2017 UNDERGRADUATE EXHIBITION

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.

2001 BFA and 2009 MAEd ECU Art Education Alumna Jennifer Love Gironda has been awarded a Florida State Teachers Artist Residency by the Hermitage Artist Retreat, along with its partner the Florida Alliance for Arts Education (FAAE)

Committed to her art, she has made one piece of art every day since January 1, 2012. She has exhibited in many group and solo shows, including a retrospective of her first five years of daily art.

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.

MFA Ceramics Candidate Rachel Clark has been selected as a Niche Award Finalist

East Carolina University is home to one of the top five ceramic finalists for the Niche Award

MFA ceramics student, Rachel Clark, was one of the chosen top five ceramic artists as a Niche Award Finalist.

Sponsored by NICHE magazine, the NICHE Awards program began in 1989 to celebrate excellence and innovation in American and Canadian fine craft. Artists are recognized in both professional and student divisions.

Nearly 2,000 entries are received each year from professional and student craft artists from across the U.S. and Canada. Each year, a prestigious panel of judges is selected by the editors of NICHE magazine, including gallery owners, guild and museum directors, curators, craft industry experts and arts advocates.

After the judging process is complete, and counts are tallied, the top-scoring pieces—5 in each category—become NICHE finalists. Out of these five, the highest-scoring piece in each category wins the NICHE award.

The NICHE Awards ceremony takes place each January during the American Made Show. The winners are revealed at the ceremony and each winning artist receives a trophy.

At the ceremony, student and professional winners take the stage side by side. Students benefit by meeting masters in their fields. Yet many attendees have noted that inspiration flows both ways. “The professionals inspire us with their technical mastery and their understanding of the role of craft in shaping culture,” says Hope Daniels, editorial director of NICHE magazine. “The students thrill us with their risk-taking vision of what craft is today and has yet to become tomorrow.”

East Carolina University in GreenvilleNorth Carolina houses one of the regions top MFA granting art schools.  With multiple art galleries, the top art exhibits from ECU encompass works of art ranging from photography, ceramics, paintings, and sculpture – to name a few.  East Carolina University School of Art and Design, Belk Distinguished Chair Linda Adele Goodine has received a prestigious award.

East Carolina University School of Art and Design, Belk Distinguished Chair Linda Adele Goodine has received the Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Flex award to support the completion of her photographic/sound still-life series focusing on land and water use in relation to local culture and tradition. This grant supports a dedicated work period for two consecutive years, where the confluence of India’s Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers, and the transition from the dry season to the monsoon season will be recorded in photos, sound, and video.

The Project will link audiences with image/art-making and service learning, while asking questions such as, “How do we see ourselves as artists/ambassadors in the wider context of a global culture?” How do we examine our activities and attitudes as thoughtful tourists? Why is it important to understand and interact with cultures that are different from our own? Stressing the importance of cultural exchange between countries, on her return to the U.S. and through her national lecture circuit, university students and the general public can begin to understand some of the complexities of culture that guidebooks cannot express. The significance of the proposed work will be its connection not only to interdisciplinary genres and local environmental activities and conditions, but also to the larger challenges of maintaining India’s natural resources in light of ecological and human challenges.

hur_feather-trace

Metal Design Professor, Mi-Sook Hur’s six enamel artworks are now part of the Enamel Arts Foundation’s collection (Los Angeles, CA, http://www.enamelarts.org). The Foundation serves to promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of modern enameling as a vibrant art form. It advances its mission by collecting, preserving, researching, documenting, and interpreting its collection of modern contemporary enamels. Bernard Jazzar, co-founder of the foundation, described her works as “exquisite and we are very pleased”. The work “Feather Trace” particularly stood out amidst its acknowledgment as an award- winning piece at “Alchemy 3,” The Enamelist Society’s biennial juried exhibition.
