Art Majors Show Their Works in BFA Thesis Exhibition
March 12, 2019 5:00 pm
BFA candidates exhibit their thesis pieces in printmaking, photography, and more.
According to gallery director Tim Massey, the next exhibition at the Tower Fine Arts Center Gallery “celebrates the accomplishments of our graduating BFA students.” The spring BFA Thesis Exhibition will be on display from March 12 – 31. There will be an opening reception on March 12 from 5 to 7 pm. The show is free and open to the public, though the Gallery will be closed from March 16 – 24 for academic break.
The exhibition will feature the creative output of five talented artists: Zane Davies, drawing; Sage Green, photography; Samuel Moe, photography; Amanda Spencer, photography; and Flore Tallarand, drawing.
For two of the artists, their work is exceedingly personal. Photographer Moe admits to having “always struggled with self-confidence; I have had a very difficult time finding comfort in myself and my community. Through the use of art, I am beginning to break down the walls with which I have surrounded myself, and I’m starting to discover who I truly am. Through my photography, digital art, and mixed media, I explore self-portraiture as a capsule to not only explore my own sense of self and my self-confidence, but also as an outlet for others to do the exact same thing. My goal is to instill a sense of comfort in self-expression and exploration in myself and my audience.” Tallarand, whose works tend to be dystopian landscapes, is able to transfer her memories of her childhood in Haiti into her art.
Two of the artists, Davies and Spencer, are already turning their talents from something you study or an avocation into a vocation. Davies is working in graphic design for a company that trades in garments and promotional items. Spencer is sharing her artistic talent with the College itself, as a painter for the Brockport Auxiliary Services Corporation, for which she occasionally designs and paints murals which spruce up the dining halls on campus.
Gallery hours: Monday – Friday: 10 am – 5 pm, Sunday: 1 – 4 pm.
