Opening Reception, Senior Thesis Exhibition, Candace J. Fasshauer & Claudia Overstreet, Thurs. Dec. 3, 6-9pm
The Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Thesis exhibition for Candace J. Fasshauer and Claudia Overstreet will open Thursday, December 3, with a reception from 6-9pm in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on the Watkins campus.
Overstreet’s Fine Art senior thesis project, "’Inter-Ontologies,’ is a project of sawdust fired ceramic wall hangings. This project is about the unification of dualities and is inspired by the philosophies of Mahayana Buddhism. According to Overstreet, “with these works, I hope to help rid the Western notion that emptiness is equated to nihilism and remind us all that existence depends on other phenomena."
Fasshauer’s Fine Art senior thesis project, “Fabrication”, portrays a deep-seated struggle with fear, attachment, and security. The work explores the externalization of internal strife through opposition of playful materials and nightmarish imagery.
This exhibition will run through December 10.
