USI – McCutchan Art Center / Pace Galleries will host two exhibitions, -RHIZA and the 2021 Senior Seminar Exhibition
The McCutchan Art Center / Pace Galleries is delighted to present two exhibitions to complement the fall semester, -RHIZA, an installation of experimental works by former Katherine Watts, and the Senior Seminar Exhibition 2021.
Katherine Watts ’07 is an ISU alumnus who recently received her MFA from the University of Louisville. -RHIZA, a collection of works of art that focuses on an immersive experience of local ecology as well as the dichotomous relationship of humanity and nature, is presented through the eyes of the artist, the eco -philosophy, eco-feminism, mycology and metaphor.
At 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 21, Watts will give an artist talk on his work and the exhibition. The conference will take place at the USI Performance Center, adjacent to University Center East.
Senior Seminar Exhibition 2021
The Senior Seminar Exhibition 2021 presents the creative work of 10 students in art, graphic design, interactive media and illustration. Senior Art and Design Seminars are comprehensive courses for art and arts education majors and combine a discussion of current aesthetic issues in the visual arts with practical knowledge in preparation for career or graduate study. Synthesis courses are also an assessment of the artistic growth and potential of students. This group exhibition is the culmination of these courses and a highlight in the careers of art majors at USI.
The show’s attendees include senior students Laisha Diaz De Leon, Kassiti Fink, Jade Hatcher, Ally Hinton, Mitchell Marcrum, Jerrith Morrison, Kelsey Parker, Faith Spahr-Munoz, Elizabeth Vanada and Joely Will.
The exhibition will run from October 18 to December 10. The opening hours of the gallery are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The McCutchan Art Center / Pace Galleries is located on the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center. For more details, visit the gallery website.
Face coverings are mandatory in the gallery and in all campus buildings. A physical distance of three feet or more is also expected at all times. If you plan to bring a group of 10 or more to the exhibit, consider contacting the gallery in advance.
