Please attend the opening of “CONNECTING IDENTITIES, TRANSFORMING DESIGN” on January 28th from 6pm – 8pm
“Connecting Identities, Transforming Design” is the faculty exhibition of the Department of Art + Visual Studies at Winston-Salem State University. It brings together the work of five artists who are active teachers and researchers in studio art and computer graphics: Endia Beal, Scott Betz, Tammy Evans, Hye Young Kim and GJ Nelson. Their diverse personal backgrounds and distinct artistic practices reflect different perspectives on traditional art media and current digital processes. Through their work, viewers can contemplate the intricate relationships between art and technology. Despite their differences in approach, appearance and effect, the analog and the digital are symbiotic or mutually dependent on one another. This exhibition presents the community with recent works that these teachers-artists-scholars have created. Works by: Endia Beal; Scott Betz; Tammy Evans; Hye Young Kim; GJ Nelson; Curated by: Dr. Lisandra Estevez
