Presenting Spring 2021 senior Exhibition
As the semester comes to a close, 20 art students graduating from VSU have worked together to create the digital gallery show Living in Color. This semester we will be presenting a wide variety of work including paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, graphic design, printmaking, book art, ceramics, jewelry, and metalworking. This vast array of artistic mediums and subject matter highlights the unique differences in each student and their art. From precise and meticulous drawings, to free-flowing watercolors, to raw and vibrant prints; viewers can experience many distinct types of art, sure to find art that speaks to them.
The work shown in Living in Color explores the use of art as communication. This communication can lie within the self as a deeper personal exploration or shine through with the ability to share our unique experiences in life. Each one of us sees the world through such diverse perspectives. This is featured in work that expresses the versatility of the body, the struggles of living as a person of color in America, and the duality of nature.
Our title Living in Color represents each one of us as individuals and unique artists, and although these colors are different, we still can find the allure in them. Each of us are at various points in our lives, and we each have unique experiences, that makes us beautiful in our own way. Artists have an exceptional way of seeing the world, tending to see it as it should be instead of how it is. In a time where the world is bleak and gray, as artists, we aim to brighten the world by choosing living in color.
