SAINT AUGUSTINE — The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum and Flagler College will be featuring its annual juried alumni exhibition from May 5 to June 16. In conjunction with the college’s Alumni Weekend, the exhibition will open with a reception for the artists on Friday, May 5, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The artists included in the exhibition, and the submissions as a whole, fittingly reflect the progressive nature of Flagler College’s Fine Art and Design curriculum over the past 30 years. Their diverse bodies of work, in both content and conception, as well as methods and materials, embody the values espoused by faculty in the Department of Art and Design, and that each artist has carried with them into their professional careers: a cultivation of individual creativity, critical reflection and historical consciousness.
The works in the exhibition encompass both abstract and representational painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, digital prints and textiles by Brianna Angelakis, Libby Couch, Amanda Dicken, Maggie Dillon, Kathleen Dougherty, Amelia Eldridge, Katie Evans, Martha Ferguson, Deanna Fitzgerald, Rebecca Hoadley, Maja Hydbom, Alex Jackman, Brielle Jenkins, Morgan Gesell Mudryk, Sara Pedigo, Key Russell, Douglas Sterns, Tara Stephens and Kate Rose Willink.
