The 49th Annual Juried Student Show and the 2017 Graphic Design Senior Show

 

The Department of Art and Design celebrates the end of the 2016-17 academic year with the 49th Annual Juried Student Exhibition, Graphic Design Trade Show and Awards Night. Join us in recognizing the achievements of our students as we announce the award winners for the juried student exhibition, our academic scholarship and Summer Research Award recipients on Wednesday, April 26 from 5-7 p.m. The event will be held at 416 College St., and all are invited to attend.

According to juror, Julie Dickover, “It is always a difficult task as a juror to make selections when given such a strong group of submissions from which to choose.  Such were the submissions for the 49th annual Juried Student Exhibition at Austin Peay State University. The works reflect a great diversity of voices within APSU’s Department of Art and Design, as well as reflects the strengths of the department to nurture and nudge these artists along their chosen artistic paths. These student artists employ a myriad of methodologies, including but not limited to portraiture, abstraction, appropriation, and graphic design, and their works encompass a great variety of disciplines, from printmaking and photography, to painting and drawing, to assemblage, ceramics and fiber arts. All of these things taken as a whole, made the process of considering each of these works a truly enjoyable experience.”

Julie Dickover has been the Director of the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum at Flagler College in Saint Augustine, Florida since 2010.  During her time at CEAM, she has organized many solo exhibitions such as Montreal-based video artist Julie Lequin, photographer Mark Ruwedel, and social practice artist Lee Walton. Other exhibitions include an interdisciplinary project with renowned artist Harrell Fletcher, entitled Before and After 1565: A Participatory Exploration of St. Augustine’s Native American History. This many-faceted exhibition included a Black Drink Stand, a trolley tour of Native and Indigenous sites of St. Augustine, all of which were in collaboration with archeologists from the City of St. Augustine and the University of North Florida, as well as the National Park Service.  More recently, CEAM hosted the exhibition and accompanying symposium, Re-Riding History: From the Southern Plains to the Matanzas Bay. This exhibition, curated by Emily Arthur, Marwin Begaye and John Hitchcock, examined the forced relocation of Plains Indians and their subsequent imprisonment at Fort Marion, through contemporary works of art.  In the fall of 2016, Dickover initiated the CEAM Artist Residency at Flagler College, with collaborator Dr. Chris Balaschak.

Prior to living in Northeast Florida, Dickover lived in Los Angeles where she was Associate Registrar at the Hammer Museum from 2003 to 2010, and Associate Director of the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica from 2000 to 2003.  She received her B.A. in Art History from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon in 1998, with a concentration in Contemporary Art.  Julie has been an active member of the American Association of Museums since 2003.

The exhibition will take place on Wednesday, April 26, 5 – 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
