New Exhibition of Student Art Work Date: February 26 – May 14 Place: Nancy Marine Gallery of the Warner Theatre
The Art Departments of Northwestern Connecticut Community College and University of Connecticut will join forces to present an exhibition in the Nancy Marine Gallery of the Warner Theatre, 68 Main Street, Torrington. The exhibition will run from February 26 - May 14, 2016 and is one of an ongoing series of exhibitions sponsored by the Five Points Gallery Educational Consortium.
Artwork from Northwestern Connecticut Community College students will include works from Drawing I, Two Dimensional Design, Painting I, Painting II and Digital Imaging classes. In the drawing area, self-portraits which combine realism with fantasy are featured, along with drapery and mannequin studies. Design students will be represented with self-portraits combining text and imagery. In the painting area, “personal still lives” and abstractions are the focus. Painting I students created their own set ups, with attention to personal content and Painting II students explored tonal abstractions. Digital imaging work includes photomontages with architectural elements inspired by the NCCC campus.
In the current show, the University of Connecticut is represented by a dozen drawings executed by art students at UCONN Waterbury from Professor Bramble’s Fall 2015 Drawing 1 and Spring 2016 Drawing II classes. Working with charcoal, charcoal pencil and pencil, the drawings on exhibit explore specific visual art concepts and approaches to art including observation and personal expression; art masterpiece reproduction; light and shadow; negative space and positive form; line and value.
