APSU Art & Design Jennifer Bayer

Jennifer Bayer, a BFA degree candidate, will present her senior exhibit, “Other Side of the Mirror” at the APSU Art Department in the Trahern Building, Gallery 108.

This one-week show, opening Monday April 20, 2015 and running through Friday April 24, 2015, is a display of human emotion captured in her sculptures of ceramic rabbits. These rabbits individually mirror an emotion and feeling exhibited during a tumultuous and poignant time in her life where she experienced the fight of cancer that led to the loss of her husband due to cancer.

Jennifer Bayer, otherwise known as JB, illustrates the spectrum of human emotion, where each spectator can personally identify with and relate to a singular moment of their life. Many of her sculptures will be available for purchase during the exhibit, and ready for pick up at the conclusion of the week.

Gallery 108 will be open daily throughout the week from 9:00am – 5:00pm. An opening reception will be held Monday April 20, 2015 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm with refreshments, where the artist will be present to talk about the work.
