Senior Exhibition 2009
featuring the work of Kaci Clay, David Kenton Kring, and Corey Washburn
Monday, May 11 – Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Reception for the artists: Thursday, May 14, 6-8 p.m. with special musical guests The Tillers.
Graduating art majors Kaci Clay, David Kenton Kring, and Corey Washburn present the culmination of their arts training in this Senior Thesis Exhibition, Lost and Found.
Kaci Clay presents a variety of her most critical work, including ceramics, paintings, drawings and sculptures. Clay's work gives a nod to the humorous, while addressing issues of contemporary importance.
David Kenton Kring's incarcerated ceramic figures soar through Morlan Gallery, buoyantly carrying the hope and the heaviness of Southern culture. Strongly influenced by Southern music, Kring's hand built and painted figures are, in his words, created with "surfaces [that are] extremely worked; often built up in layers, then stripped away, and built back up again."
Corey Washburn's room-sized installation is a mystery waiting to be solved. Cluttered with ephemera, furniture, and the melancholy, compulsion leads to discovery in a room with a story.
The Morlan Gallery is open weekdays, noon to 5 p.m.
