FREDERICK, Md.—Four student artists will display original works of art May 5-13 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.
The opening reception will be May 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Gallery talks by the artists will begin at 6 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
"It’s Dakine" showcases the prints of senior art student Brooke Gleason. Her exhibition features hand-pulled linoleum block cut prints embellished with watercolor, ink, chalk pastel and organic matter such as leaves, flowers and feathers. Her passion for nature, color, imagination and expression are reflected in her prints.
Piret Mägi will display "Mind Games," a collection of digital art pieces. Her works are intended not only to be viewed but also to be experienced. Mägi uses design elements in a way that requires the viewer to find and understand the concept, which for her represents the need to look beyond the initial visual impression and investigate what is under the surface.
The work of Katie Rattigan is featured in an exhibit entitled "You Can Learn a Lot of Things From the Flowers." Varieties of common garden flowers, created from ceramics and other media, are represented in this display.
In a series entitled "Lost Things," Molly Young incorporates found objects into her paintings and renders paintings on unconventional objects. Her compositions are intended to inspire viewers to appreciate objects in unconventional ways, and to illustrate the loss of tangible possessions and fleeting moments, and the fragility of nature.
