SAINT AUGUSTINE – The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum and Flagler College will present an exhibition of recent work by full- and part-time fine art and graphic design faculty in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. The exhibition will be on view from Aug. 30 through Sept. 26. The opening reception will be held on Friday, Sept. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m., in conjunction with St. Augustine’s First Friday Art Walk. This event is free and open to the public.
Artists included in the exhibition are Sarah Alexander, Luke Brodersen, Joseph Fioramanti, Diana Lodi, Logan Marconi, Kevin Mahoney, Russell Maycumber, Laura Mongiovi, Patrick Moser, Sara Pedigo, Leslie Robison, Jason Schwab, Chris Smith, Natalie Stephenson and Mark Zimmerman. Their work encompasses painting, drawing, motion graphics, print and digital design, package design, social practice, printmaking, community-based arts, photography, sculpture, installation and video.
Each artist’s practice is rooted in a deep intellectual curiosity, which is paired with a rigorous material, conceptual and social inquiry. Whether employing more traditional modes of artistic production, building relationships through community-based arts and design and collaborative processes, or working across disciplines, the art and design faculty have a deep well of professional experience from which to draw upon for their teaching. Their efforts both in the classroom and in the field have contributed greatly to Flagler College’s rich cultural environment, and in turn reverberate throughout our community.
A series of lunchtime and happy hour artist talks will run during the course of the exhibition. Associate Professor of Art Leslie Robison will discuss her current projects prior to the exhibition opening on Friday, Sept. 6 at 4 p.m. Chris Smith, assistant professor of graphic design, will present on his work, past and present, on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 4 p.m. To conclude the artist talks, on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 4 p.m., Jennifer Saracino, assistant professor of art history, will give a presentation on her recent art historical research.
