Digital media exhibit on display at Vise Library

2/12/2013

 

Cumberland University’s Vise Library is hosting a free exhibit of digital media art for the spring semester, highlighting the talents of students from the institution’s School of Music and the Arts.

New pieces will be added throughout the semester as students complete projects in digital media courses with Margie Monde, Art and Digital Media faculty. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“The art is wonderful and reflects the creative excellence of our digital media students,” Library Director Eloise Hitchcock said. “We are happy to have their work exhibited at Vise Library.”

The exhibit currently features some of best digital artwork from students in Monde’s Digital Imaging and Typography courses in the fall of 2012.  From surrealistic images of Cumberland’s Memorial Hall draped in melting clocks to pop art-styled self-portraits, the works reflect the energy and creativity of Cumberland’s art students.

Featured artists currently include Jerry Alexander, Micah Beard, Chloe Campbell, Brittany Koken, Josh McCausland, Michelle McGowan, Scott Reynolds, Javin Stone, Whitney Wilkerson, and Austin Williams. New artists will be added as the semester continues.

The exhibit comes in the midst of a fruitful semester for students of Cumberland’s School of Music and the Arts. In early February, six art students had works accepted into the “Emergence 2012” juried collegiate art exhibition at the Chromatics Gallery in Nashville, Tenn.

The digital media show is the latest of many art exhibits at Vise Library, which typically hosts several displays every year. In late 2012, Vise Library played host to another student exhibit by graphic artist Chloe Campbell.

The digital media exhibit is located near Vise Library’s front entrance. Community visitors can sign in at the front desk. For more information about fine arts events at Cumberland University, contact the School of Music and the Arts at (615) 547-1364.
