Student Art Exhibition & Affordable Art Sale
An exhibition of two and three-dimensional works will be on display throughout the day presenting a spectrum of media and disciplines used by talented new and veteran artists currently working within the college’s Fine Arts Dept. Works will include visually stimulating paintings, drawings and design and ceramics ranging from purely sculptural to functional items like mugs, cups, bowls and other great
holiday present ideas. A collaborative art installation will also be on display which visitors can take part in.
Live Art Demonstrations, Food & Beverage Sale
One of our featured artists is Elisa Cresse, an advanced ceramics student who combines wheel throwing with hand building and finely crafted organic details. Her ambitious forms, influenced by nature, are often functional, including sculptural water fountains as part of her repertoire. Elisa will be doing a live wheel throwing demonstration. Other students will paint and draw for the public’s viewing pleasure.
Food and beverages will also be for sale. All proceeds from this and a portion from art sales will raise funds for future Art Club activities and events.
Artist Talk by Martin Casuso 6:30pm | Library Auditorium
Fiber Art Sculpture & Installation art
The celebration will culminate with a talk by acclaimed professional artist Martin Casuso at 6:30.
Casuso is a Cuban-American artist based in Miami. With its origins in mainstream craft, his work involves a deliberate shift from decorative home-based crafts to conceptual works of art. His medium is a combination of products, fiber and thrift store goods, handled in a nostalgic way that shows layers of labor, representing the ephemeral nature of our lives and the transitory nature of value.
