As holiday break approaches, perhaps you’re in need of some artful inspiration. No worries, Hite Art Institute has you covered.
Hite just announced the opening of the school’s Annual Student Exhibition. Work in this show highlights not only the tremendous accomplishments of UofL students, it also showcases their dramatic range. Artists from all studio areas, from glass to graphic design, painting to printmaking, will be on view Dec. 7 through Jan. 12.
The subjects in this work are as varied as the methods employed to produce them. Remington King’s silkscreen work appropriates pop culture references and juxtaposes them with fine art practice. Lillian Fouch’s meticulous relief offers an exploration of identity and the artist’s relationship to inherited culture forms and symbols. Melanie Osbone’s paintings similarly consider hybrid identity and the artist’s ability to construct and manipulate one’s sense of self.
“In every case, work in this exhibition demonstrates the talent and intellect of the diverse Hite Art Institute student body,” said Jessica Oberdick, Hite’s new Exhibitions Assistant, who helped with the show.
The reception is 6-8 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts, 100 E. Main St.
