Here are some photos from Carroll's Fine Arts Night. There was some really interesting funny art. There were also spoken word pieces, singing and music as well. I really do think the night should be longer than just a two hour event. I was able to meet the young ladies who came to Lowe's looking for display ideas and paint.
This was a nice set up, and some nice pieces. The display was three panels painted and hinged together, with a board across the top to keep everything stable, as well as identify the artist.
Taylor made a cast of her own body in packing tape, and made a dress form. Displayed on this is a dress she made, and yes, she can wear it.
Some nice graphic design work.
Noah got these pallets from church for basically nothing. He nailed some panels on the backs of the pallets to give them height. He then nailed some supports on the bottom so the panels wouldn't fall over. He said to buy the pallets, they would cost about $9 each. He then mounted his photos on some unusual nails that sort of looked like flattened spikes. They fit in really well with his photographs, which featured lots of bridges.
This display was made of what looked like OSB and PVC pipe. Ashley's work depicted a father and son doing the same things.
Brooke was one of the young ladies who came to Lowe's looking for paint. She chose this dark red color, and I strongly suggested she use some gray primer on her panels before putting the red on. Red does not cover well, so I think the gray primer helped. Brooke said she put on about two coats of the red. It looked really nice!
Tayler knew someone who had a prior Fine Arts night exhibit, and borrowed this set up, which consisted of old doors. Tayler can't remember where her friend got them, but said they weren't expensive. The doors looked antique, and made a beautiful background to her work.
Alexa is the second young lady who came with her parents looking for display ideas. The boards were painted black and then hinged together to make a big display triangle. Boards can range from insulation to OSB to particle board to plywood. I think her father said the set up cost around $103.
Alana's artwork struck me as having a sense of humor. You'll see a close-up photo of her stuff later.
Brianna spoke about being Asian, and how it puts a damper on the holidays. However, she portrayed it in a humorous way.
And Santa doesn't come for Christmas, either. Sorry the pictures are sideways.
Coming to Starbucks soon. The Megaccino. Only $200.
A whole table of wire-sculpted shoes was set up. Here are a couple of them.
Yes, a replica of that famous picture, with soldiers made out of packing tape.
Made out of Starburst wrappers.
It looks like Obama, but it isn't.
I like how this figurine was multitasking.
This student liked underwater photography.
I like the title on this one.
This caught my eye, because it looks like a miniature replica of the area surrounding Cindy's Diner downtown. Then I realized it wasn't. It's a photograph, and there must be something up with either the lens, or how it was manipulated (if it was).
This is plastic, painted and then glued into place.
I like abstract art.
A 3-D depiction of the Wizard of Oz.
These bowls looked like flowers to me.
I like art that makes me think and/or wonder. Is this a tooth, or a white diamond?
Or are they leaf birds?
A branch makes for an interesting display tool.
I like this apple stitched together. It was disturbing.
I love the colors in this. This was done by Brooke Stabler.
The picture above was painted in nail polish! Alexa Heyneman did this one.
This photographer had photo reproductions of famous photos as part of his display.
I think this was the artist, Josiah Joseph, posing as Elvis.
Some of Alana's work. I like her sense of humor!
Kate Yeager had some disturbing-looking work. Her display was literally a miniature art gallery, complete with walls and lights.
This was a really wonderful show. And it was absolutely free! Next year, consider coming out to this show to see and hear some very talented students!
