When I Grow Up …, mixed media exhibition by Courtney Fairweather

Detail of Courtney Fairwather's sculpture "Doll House"Upper year visual art student Courtney Fairweather’s solo exhibition When I Grow Up … is a critical examination of “traditional” gender roles.

 

Sweet Dreams uses illustrations by such people as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Muriel Dawson, and Susan B. Pearse, applied to bedroom curtains.These images socialize little girls into acceptance of traditional gender roles whereby they clean house and are passive in the face of male violence. The second part of the exhibition, Doll House, is a metaphorical representation of what girls can expect, if they adhere to these gender roles. This mixed media exhibition also includes photographic material.

Gallery Hours:
Mon. – Thurs. 10am – 4pm.

Woven, a raw canvas installation by Eszter Rosta
Jan 7 – Jan 17 all-day

Eszter Rosta's Substance (a) - 2018Fifth year Visual Art student Eszter Rosta’s solo show Woven, explores materiality, physicality, and objecthood in a number of large-scale raw canvas works.

“I want to play with the prominence of the shape through the materials in question and natural pigmentations such as teas, coffee grounds, plants, etc. Furthermore, I also intend to represent the objecthood of the canvas, by showing them for the canvas that it is – the actual fabrication of the material, the complexity of its weaving, and its natural reference to plants, through processes of manipulation and human imprint.

Just the Wind, a mixed-media exhibition by Ellen Soule and Liv Paul
Jan 21 – Jan 31 all-day

Liv Paul - Portrait of Ellen, ink drawing Third year Visual Art students Ellen Soule and Liv Paul team up to create and present Just the Wind, a mixed-media exhibition that invites viewers to ask questions about the way they experience fear and trauma.

“It is a well-known expression that most people have encountered when hearing a strange noise that it was “just the wind” rather than an intruder – human, or spectral. Our joint exhibition focuses on the experience of our fears or traumas and how we process them. We want people to connect with a moment they remember hearing the phrase so that they immediately recognize their connection to the works. We hope that people will see their own fears represented in the visualizations of our personal fears, which are common in many people but create different reactions individually. ”
