The Averitt Center for the Arts marks First Friday, April 4, 5:30-7:30 p.m., for the opening of Graduate Fusion, a show of current works from the graduate program of BFSDoA at GSU during the month of April. The show will include both two- and three-dimensional paintings as well as sculpture. Exhibiting artists are Scott Foxx, Claudia Furlow, Dianne Johnson, Michael Lesh, Brandon Strode and Ruth Patel.
Foxx, a native of Savannah, Georgia, investigates the blurred line between the temporal world of actual experience and the simulated worlds of our digital age. Furlow, from Shenandoah, Virginia, examines the textures and patterns of animal tissue in oil on canvas. The designs of Dianne Johnson, of Sheffield, Alabama, employ the multiple functions of jewelry both as body adornment and sculpture. Michael Lesh, of Columbus, Georgia, infuses skateboard culture into forged works. Brandon Strode, of Canton, Illinois, explores the subconscious in his assemblages. Ruth Patel, of Huntsville, Alabama, probes how the instability of memory alters recollection of mental and physical space.
