Matthew Knopps - Someplace Special
Mathew Leon Knopps is on a mission to rescue the vagrants of visual culture. Armed with the tools of the street artist and vandal, he finds abandoned and forlorn images (and abject objects) and modifies them into gloriously kooky original works of art. Families of cardboard TV-heads cheer him on as he wields his marshmallow gun and spray-paint can and leads us into a world that goes beyond the banal into unknown territory.

Theresa Summer-Davis Senior Exhibition
Senior Theresa Summer-Davis investigates issues of the body in the context of feminine experience in this engaging show that is both documentation of many womens’ particular experience and arresting and beautiful photographic imagery.
show runs Oct. 16 though 29 in Union Grove Gallery
Nice Centani’s moody abstracted figures are reminiscent of German expressionism, yet express the experience of contemporary bodily experience. In her paintings, the figures push and pull at the edges of the picture plane, contained but not silenced. Through the use of energetic expressive brushwork, crude calligraphic line, and tense highly charged composition the paintings invoke the abject, the erotic and the complex relationship between body and mind.
show runs Oct.31-Nov.13 in Union Grove Gallery
Megan White's work reveals her evolving relationship with the material qualities of paint and the possibilities of both representation and abstraction. Color harmonies and rhythmic marks combined with personal imagery make these works aesthetically exiting and emotionally moving.
show runs Oct.31-Nov.13 in the Library Gallery
Ankica Mitrovska’s richly glazed rhythmic abstractions are seductive and sensual explorations of color, form and figuration. With a nod to urban art, she merges the flat patterns of grafitti and tattoo art with the elegant volumetric forms of traditional figure painting to create multi layered paintings that acknowledge the formal conventions of abstract expressionism, while creating something new. Each painting creates an ambiguous space that allows gesture to operate on form evoking a sense of time, movement and transformation.
show runs Nov.14 through Dec.3 in Wilson Hall Gallery
Myrtle &Me Chesney Matthews
Chesney Matthews’' mixed media works explore the juxtoposition of texture, color and ornamentation in both 2-d and 3-d media. Her interest in fashion as a source of identity, a love of decoration and the hand made, and a playful quasi-nostalgic sensibility contribute to a sense of tactile beauty in her engaging work.
show runs Nov.16th - Dec.3rd in Union Grove Gallery
