FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College ceramics arts graduate students Jacklyn Scott and Pete Gunkelman will present their work in an exhibit in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center May 19 through June 11.
In her “Steel Magnolias” show, Scott uses wood-firing techniques to achieve various soft and rough surfaces in addition to a soft, neutral color palette to feature female imagery. The juxtaposition of her delicate brushstrokes and bold black lines relate to the feminist subject matter of this body of work. Scott earned a bachelor’s degree in studio arts from The Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia and is earning her master’s degree in ceramic arts from Hood College.
Pete Gunkelman’s “Virtual Transposition” exhibit features figurative sculptures depicting the effects of technology on human interaction. Classically posed figures are juxtaposed with sculpted cell phones and other objects accentuating the way in which technology affects our everyday life and art.
The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. A reception is scheduled for May 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Jenna Gianni at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-696-3285.
