Exhibition Dates: October 2 to October 26, 2012 Joseph Melançon Lecture: October 2, 4:00-4:45pm Reception for the artists: October 2, 5:00-7:00 pm In the East Gallery are six alumni of the TWU graduate painting program. The show is curated by Professor Gary Washmon, and highlights current work being done by students who graduated in the last 6 years. Penny Bisbee’s work addresses the issue of environmental stewardship in a society that is based on the consumption and use of environmental resources. I incorporate the use of the figure and its relationship to the space of the picture plane. The medium of oil paint offers variety; juicy, thick impasto applications, translucent glazes, opaque, flat colors or rich, deep hues. In an era of astounding advances in technology and communication technologies, oil painting still seems “hand built” and provides evidence of the artist. Mark Collop’s work mines visual tropes of masculinity in professional athletics and the marketing of celebrity while subtly exploring the limits of the materials used in each work. Tim Harding’s recent works often combine disciplines including painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, and video. At their most basic level, these works are labor-intensive drawings. They take what is often a delicate form of art and turn it in to a construction process that utilizes drills, staple-guns, hammers and other equipment for mark-making. Sunny Jacquet approaches painting with a simple philosophy: a successful piece of art is one that allows viewers to peek into my world of imagination and artistic aspirations. My artworks combine trompe l’oiel and classical painting techniques with surreal settings to express messages of revitalization and aspiration. Through my paintings, I wish to create an atmosphere of humor, fantasy, mystery, and elements of human conditions. Also, I transform everyday experiences into visual stimulation as a form of communication, to pose questions and seek answers. Tammy Wascovich ‘Naturally drawn to the unique and interesting, I have always been intrigued by people. My eye is drawn to small details that define individuality, including gesture, color, texture, shape, size and attitude. I look at people as a whole organism, made up of many individual strokes of style. The transference of those strokes influences my artistic style while capturing the event’s collective energy and spirit.’ Leigh Ann Williams’ works are energetic abstractions inspired by recorded and live music. The works have the frenetic feel of motion and invention from a club show or concert and are painted with free flowing brushstrokes contrasted by highly developed and modeled space.
