Exploding Boundaries: Faculty Staff Drawing Show Opens
(7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
The Fosdick Nelson Gallery presents Exploding Boundaries, an exhibition highlighting the practice of drawing in the School of Art and Design at Alfred University. The exhibition brings together the work of over fifty faculty and staff artists - a significant accomplishment, as an event of this scope, featuring our community of makers, is unprecedented at the school. The concept for the show was conceived by the Gallery Committee in the fall of 2012; Joseph Scheer, Committee Chair and Professor of Printmaking and Gerar Edizel, Professor of Art History, along with Sharon McConnell, Gallery Director organized the exhibition. Exploding Boundaries will open in the Fosdick-Nelson and the upper floor of the Turner Gallery with a gala reception on March 6 from 7-9pm. InSight, a student drawing exhibtion, juried by Kathy Vedja will open on the first floor of the Turner Gallery in conjunction with Exploding Boundaries. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend. The exhibition runs through April 5, 11-4 weekdays and 1-3 weekends, excluding spring break recess March 9-17.
A full range of drawing methodologies are reflected in the exhibition and in the one- line statements collected from faculty and staff defining the role of drawing in their personal practice. The definitions range from the practical to the philosophical, and as the show title implies, the work on display explodes the conventional boundaries of drawing so that visitors might reassemble the practice in a new light for a more expansive view.
On Wednesday March 2oth at 5pm there will be a symposium in the gallery focusing on the practice of drawing in contemporary art, featuring a panel of faculty moderated by Gerar Edizel. The symposium is free and open to the public.
