Alumni Art Exhibition

Rebecca Munday, Staff Writer

If you want to see what Armstrong arts alumni have been up to since their graduation, visit the alumni exhibition in the Fine Arts Gallery in the Fine Arts Hall.

 The Statesboro campus has hosted an event like this for many years but it is a first for the Armstrong campus. 

The exhibit is part of an effort to make the event calendars on both campuses coincide. 

The works are done in a range of media including paint, photography and graphic design. 

There is an introductory statement of intent located by the gallery doors for inquiries of creator, piece size,  medium, and sales.

There isn’t a set theme for this exhibit because “We wanted to showcase what the alumni are doing on their own,” explained Gallery Director Raymond Gaddy.

Each artist that submitted work got at least one piece included in the exhibition. 

Gaddy said he used mostly technical criteria, such as the size of the piece to judge them, along with a bit of his own personal preference to determine which pieces were displayed. 

However, he said it was all “strong work”. 

The Alumni Exhibition will be in Fine Arts Hall 129 from now through Sept. 27.
