  • TRACE: VISA Honours Exhibition

    Trace

    Brock University Department of Visual Arts Honours Exhibition

    March 22 to April 27, 2014
    Opening Reception: Friday, March 21, 7 pm
    Panel Discussion and Catalogue Launch: Friday, April 11, 7 pm
    TRACE, the 2014 edition of the Brock University Visual Arts Honours Exhibition at Rodman Hall Art Centre, features artworks by seven graduating honours students from the Department of Visual Arts: Julia Chamberlain, Holley Corfield, Emma German, Amy Hansen, Stacey Kinder, Monique Mol, and Lauren Regier.

    This exhibition is the culmination of eight months of work during which students have pursued the creation of a sustained body of artwork. Under the mentorship of professors Donna Szőke and Jean Bridge, students have each evolved individual creative approaches to the delicate complexities of memory, touch, presence and evidence.

    The Department of Visual Arts partners with Rodman Hall to make it possible for graduating students to work in the studios at the gallery and engage directly with Curators Marcie Bronson and Stuart Reid and guest artists who exhibit at Rodman Hall throughout the year. In this stimulating environment, students are challenged to take their work from experimentation and making to professional-level production and exhibition. Students in the Honours Studio forge rigorous and impactful work within this unique context that enhances their future opportunities for graduate studies or professional creative practice with a strong portfolio.

    Such exhibits from the Department of Visual Arts are key to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts’ mandate to connect the community with the breadth of talent and creativity at Brock University.

  • VISA Honours Exhibit: PERCEPTIONISTS

    Rodman Hall Art Centre
    109 St. Paul Crescent St. Catharines,
    ON L2S 1M3 

    April 21 – May 6, 2012
    Opening reception: Friday, April 20, 2012 at 7 p.m. 

    PERCEPTIONISTS, the 2012 edition of the Brock University Visual Arts Honours Exhibit features artworks by three graduating honours students from the Department of Visual Arts: Sarah Beattie, Danny Fast, and Carrie Perreault.

    This exhibition is the culmination of eight months of work where students pursued the creation of a body of artwork. Under the mentorship of Visiting Artist Donna Szoke, and Assistant Professor Duncan MacDonald, students individually explored diverse mediums ranging from video, performance, painting, photography, and installation.

    Irene Loughlin, an interdisciplinary artist and instructor at Brock University writes, “The works in this exhibition engage both the artist and the viewer, underscoring the complex relationships between illusion and representation, obsolescence and contemporaneity, technology and biology, difference and normativity. These three artists give concrete form to some of the outstanding contradictions inherent in our contemporary lives, challenging established perceptions while opening a space that might allow for the emergence of new subjectivities.”

    The Department of Visual Arts has a long tradition of presenting work of graduating students mentored in its Honours Studio program. Students accepted into this course develop a cohesive body of work that will support their entry into graduate school MFA programs and act as a strong portfolio for future artistic endeavours.

    Such exhibits from the Department of Visual Arts are key to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts’ mandate to connect the community with the breadth of talent and creativity at Brock University.

    Join us for the opening reception of PERCEPTIONISTS on Friday, April 20, 2012 at 7 p.m., held at Rodman Hall Art Centre. Gallery hours: Tuesday – Friday: 1 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.; closed Mondays and statutory holidays.
