Join us as we celebrate the culmination of these students’ work in Plymouth State University’s intense, highly focused professional programs. Throughout the year, studio art majors delve into personal themes, motifs, and media to achieve a mature body of work, which will be featured in the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Graphic Design majors create and define a fictitious company and spend the year producing a broad range of applications including logos, stationery, advertisements, posters, and publications, which will be showcased in The Silver Center for the Arts.

Postcard Exchange

April 10th, 2014 by Jong-Yoon

PSU Printmaking Students participated in a postcard exchange with Iowa State University Print Society.  Students printed an edition of 12 “postcards” per artist, which were then individually mailed to Iowa State University.  In return their work will be shipped to 12 different artists all over the world and they will receive 12 different “postcard” prints from national and international artists.  Their work will also be displayed in the postcard exhibition at Iowa State University.

Visiting Artist Talk: Jessica Burke

Visiting Artist Talk: Jessica Burke
Draper & Maynard 302
Thursday, April 10th, 2014
5:30pm – 6:30pm

Born in Wichita, Kansas in 1976, Jessica Burke was raised on a steady diet of Saturday morning cartoons and sugary cereals. She left the University of North Carolina in 2005 armed with a Master of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting and just enough charm to be dangerous. Jessica is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Foundations Program in the Betty Foy Sanders Art Department at Georgia Southern University.

This work is part of a new series that functions as a meditation on identity as seen through the influence of iconic figures of popular culture. This series allows the sitter to assume the identity of a fictional character from popular culture that was particularly influential during their formative years. The media we consumed as children and continue to consume throughout our lives influences how we see ourselves and our place in the world. Ultimately, the media has sold us our identities. The way we articulate ourselves, specifically our ideal selves, is built out of a framework given to us by popular culture. These drawings can reveal a shared sense of our inner desire to be more than we see in the mirror and closer to what is reflected to us from our television, computer, and movie screens.
