In January, the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum will host an exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based artist Christine Nguyen. With a keen interest in biology and the sciences, Christine works with non-traditional photographic processes such as cyanotype and creates site-specific photo installations. More recently the artist has explored the effects of salt crystallization on flora and fauna that she has foraged in her native LA. To aid in her installation here at Flagler, we would like to invite students (and professors) in the art department to forage for foliage, garbage, and other found detritus to be subject to her salt experiments. If interested, please keep the objects to a reasonable size as we will ship them to Los Angeles. Please feel free to contact Julie Dickover at the museum if you have any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Please join us for the opening of two new exhibitions at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum. Sean Sexton's exhibition entitled "Blood Writing" is on display in the North Gallery. This artist/rancher/writer is a jack of all trades and in honor of his recently published book of poetry will give a reading at 5:30pm during the opening. Damond Howard's, "It's Still America's Greatest Problem" is on view in the West Gallery. Howard is also a Visiting Artist for the fall semester and will be giving a talk in the gallery on Friday at 11am. Both exhibitions will be on view through November 30.
Flagler College's Department of Art and Design was proud to support and recommend Kimberly Kambiss-Smith and Joseph Stiles into the Alpha Chi National Honor Society.
Alpha Chi is a coeducational academic honor society. Since 1922 its purpose has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.
To mark the ceremony, several low resolution photographs were taken with their very proud faculty sponsor's iphone. The Department of Art and Design is less proud to show the, now photoshopped, commemorative documentation.
Join us Nov 11 as Ellen Lupton vents her rage about dumb quotes, bad kerning, free fonts, over-priced toasters, over-stuffed pillows, ill-fitting bras, adult orthodontia, and more, much more. Lupton is a curator, writer, designer, teacher, and world-class complainer who is obsessed with uncovering the design problems all around us. Today, anyone can be a designer-or a publisher, pundit, rock star, or filmmaker. Does that mean we're heading for a more vibrant and interesting world, or one where high quality and good taste are destined for a global meltdown?
Ellen Lupton is curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution in New York City and director of the Graphic Design MFA program at MICA in Baltimore. She is a 2007 recipient of the AIGA Gold Medal. A frequent lecturer around the U.S. and the world, Lupton will speak about design to anyone who will listen.
This Sunday evening, Miguel Luciano's work will be featured in a PBS/Thirteen series entitled Art Through Time: A Global View<http://www.learner.org/courses/globalart/>. It's a thirteen-part series that examines works of art created around the world in different eras. His work is featured in the first episode, entitled Converging Cultures, which looks at historic and contemporary examples of cultural clashes or collaborations that have led to "hybrid styles, innovative new forms, and the reinterpretation of traditional signs and symbols". This episode also features the work of artists Takashi Murakami and Guillermo Gomez Peña.
For those in the NY / NJ area, the program airs this Sunday, October 10th at 11:30pm on Channel 13. (It will also air on October 24th at 2:30pm.)
You can also view the complete series of Art Trough Time: A Global View<http://www.learner.org/courses/globalart/> online.
The work of several Flagler College professors is on display at the Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art’s new exhibit called “Imagination Squared.” The exhibit features the work of hundreds of artists in the Northeast Florida on 5-inch-by-2-inch pieces of canvas. The display, which has more than 2,000 pieces, is designed to capture the imagination of Jacksonville.
Flagler’s Leslie Robison, Sara Pedigo, Laura Mongiovi, Patrick Moser, Russell Maycumber, Loren Myhre and Enzo Torcoletti all contributed to the show.
See the Arbus magazine featuring the show in the lobby of the Art Building.
Every Friday in Studio 4, the Art Department will provide a model for a three-hour open figure session. As often as possible they will hire a nude model, otherwise a clothed student model will pose. The sessions are open to everyone. Bring your own materials and your friends.
