B.F.A. exhibits under way at Slocumb Galleries

Work by Ju Li

JOHNSON CITY – East Tennessee State University’s annual Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibitions are under way at Slocumb Galleries, and will continue through April, showcasing the talents of graduating seniors in the university’s Department of Art and Design.

Different students will exhibit each week in Slocumb Galleries, which will be open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 6 p.m. and during receptions.  Admission is free.

This week features “Social Filigree” by Darby E. Curtis III, “Pattern” by Ju Li and “Blind Faith” by Michael Hale.  These exhibits continue through Friday, March 21, and a joint reception for all three students will be held Thursday, March 20, from 6-8 p.m.

“Social Filigree” is an “eclectic exploration” in both paint and print that “portrays emerging concepts revolving around Curtis’ newfound admiration for curvaceous, tattooesque design.”

“Pattern” features Li’s Chinese-style pattern artworks in various media, including ceramics, fibers and drawing.

In “Blind Faith,” Hale “recognizes how the concept of religion has changed, and its relevance in contemporary society is evident as a key topic” in his sculpture.

The Slocumb Galleries are located in Ball Hall on the ETSU campus.
