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.
