Meaning, Metaphor, and Myth: Klecksography by Hans Guggenheim

April 28 -May 16

 

Opening reception with presentation by the artist: Monday, April 28, 4-6pm in the Karl Drerup Art Gallery

 

From the German word for ink blots, Klecksography explores the art of making images from inkblots.  This intriguing form of art making involves not only the artist, but the viewer. This exhibit will provide an opportunity for visitors and student groups to study and respond to the images, drawing on philosophical, psychological, and cultural influences. Artist, illustrator, anthropologist and scholar, Hans Guggenheim will share a series of “Klecksographs” he has created, inviting viewers to find characters, shapes, and meaning within the artworks.

 

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and Graphic Design

April 22 – May 17, 2014

Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 22, 4-6pm

 Studio Art—Karl Drerup Art Gallery

Graphic Design—Silver Center for the Arts

 The BFA degrees in studio art and graphic design are 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, culminating in the selection of work featured in this threshold exhibit at 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, pamphlets, and publications. These materials are displayed in the Silver Center for the Arts atrium. BFA students in both programs are mentored by selected faculty members, although all faculty participate in critiques and individual dialog with the students throughout the experience.
