Location: H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art
Join us for the “Fall Senior Exhibition” featuring Carthage studio art majors, Malik Edwards ’21, Kyla Philips ’21, and Juniper Winn ’21, from Saturday, Nov. 21 through Tuesday, Nov. 24, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the opening reception for this event has been canceled. The gallery is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. Viewings need to be scheduled in advance. Carthage faculty can make reservations for their classes by contacting the Gallery Director Ryan Miller at email@example.com.
The exhibition features a dynamic variety of media, including digital, inkjet print photographs, silkscreen prints, and serves as a springboard event for our emerging professional artists. This showcase is the first step for these artists’ exciting new careers as Carthage alumni!
Malik Edwards’ exhibit features web-based memetic subjects, using Photoshop and similar digital rendering platforms to generate original iterations of familiar images. New works, including “Ok Boomer,” “Trump Would Never,” and “Rosie,” parody current political and nonpolitical tensions within the country.
Kyla Philips’ exhibit, “To Be Enticed,” is an exploration of indulgence and decadence through photographs of food. The delectably sweet subject focuses on the effect food has on one’s emotional condition. Photographs like “Lay it on Thick,” which depicts delicious cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing, and “Pick a Team,” portraying tantalizing piles of cookies, may just tempt viewers to take a bite!
Juniper Winn’s exhibit, “I am God,” represents a visceral intersection of self-exploration and a fascination of historical religious art. This showcase features silkscreen prints depicting the pain and healing that manifest within interpersonal relationships. Including works titled, “Mama, you were Mary,” “I’m sorry I couldn’t be Christ,” and “Saints of Melancholy,” Juniper illustrates personal tribulations through visual references of art history.
Gallery hours are from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays. Gallery hours are subject to change, and only four people in the gallery at a time. For more information, please contact the Gallery at 262-551-6341 during business hours.
