CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Re/Touch: the process of improving something with new touches, or alterations, to produce a finished work. This word not only represents the culmination of works presented this Fall in a show of the same name, but also the education and experiences of nine highly creative graduating designers at Austin Peay State University. Jacquelyn Cordy, D. L. Zartner, Andy Blankenship, Matt Mixon, Brian Williams, Shafia Choudhury, Amber Barry, Carolyn Madison and Nathan Lee are part of a capstone course taught by Paul Collins, APSU assistant professor of art. Works featured in this exhibition will cover the creative bounds of graphic design - from animation to book design to advertising – in a fully developed installation environment designed and built by the students.
"Everyone interested in design and education would be well served by visiting this show because of the quality and dynamic range of the works shown, and more because this show was entirely and completely planned, organized and staged by these student,” Collins said. “It's simply incredible to see the drive, execution, vision and collaboration of these graduating seniors."
Re/Touch opens with a reception in APSU's Trahern Gallery at 5 p.m. on Dec. 5. That event is free and open to the public. Gallery hours for viewing the exhibition are from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday and from noon-4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The show runs from Dec. 5 until Dec. 16 and is sponsored by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the APSU Department of Art.
