In celebration of the achievements from students that have studied under Professor Kim Varnadoe, Salem College is presenting a showcase of artwork by previous graduates. The exhibit, Kim & Company XX: Twenty Years of Salem Art Alumnae, features a collection of artwork from alumnae from classes 1996 to 2015.
The exhibit contains art from all angles – detailed paintings, intricate mixed media, handcrafted pottery, and unique installation pieces. The viewer is able to walk through the gallery and experience the transformation of style and technique by alumnae over the past twenty years.
From traditional Japanese prints by Mona Wu to the complex installation piece of jellyfish made from cellophane by Wren Wilson, this exhibit can satisfy even the pickiest of art critics. With such a diverse variety of form and genre, viewers are bound to find themselves gazing upon at least one original piece of artwork.
Included in the gallery is a book of written statements from the artists as well as information on how to purchase individual pieces. This show can easily be considered one of the largest collaborations of art from Salem alumnae that the college has ever seen.
Location: Elberson Fine Arts Center at Salem College
Date: April 1st – May 2nd, 2016
