USCB Senior Student Art Exhibition

The reception will be held on Wednesday, May 2, from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.  Artist talks will begin at 6:30 p.m. Each artist will present their work in a lightning style format, which will move around the gallery space.

Untitled 18 features the work of Nicholas Bell, Jeremiah Buoy, Holli Coble-Nunn, Natalie Howden, Micalah Locke, Abigail Long, Bradly Stanley, Lizanna Stone, and Eva Zygmuntowicz.

Artwork being shown includes: the surreal photographs of Abbey Long, some of which include textures and objects superimposed onto the body or within the figure; illustrative figurative paintings and drawings by Eva Zzygmuntowicz created in a delicate Pop style; colorful digitially manipulated images of  abstracted landscape paintings by Holli Coble-Nunn, and detailed hand-painted engravings of narrative scenes by Jeremiah Buoy.

Micalah Locke deals with the subject of the female body in her linoleum and solar prints; Bradley  Stanley focuses our attention on details of nature and life in his photographs and Natalie Howden creates clay and mixed media sculptures based on books that were influential to her as a child.

Mixed media paintings and an animation are created by Nicholas Bell, which feature a storyline centered around a fox chase through a forest, and Lizanna Stone displays colored pencil drawings of creatures that stare out at the viewer within a landscape and bordered frame.

The exhibition is currently on view at the Center for the Fine Arts at the University of South Carolina. Work will be moved to the Sea Islands Center Gallery, where it will be on display from April 30 - May 2, 2018. The gallery is located at 1106 Carteret St. in Beaufort, SC.
