Imagined Spaces: Student Exhibition Opens at Averitt Center

Allyson Schuman: Boathouse

“Boathouse” by Allyson Schuman Digital Illustration, 2016

The Averitt Center for the Arts and the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art will present Imagined Spaces from Feb. 3-27 at the Averitt Center’s Legends Gallery. A reception will be held Friday, Feb. 3 from 5-7 p.m.

Imagined Spaces is a themed exhibition of Georgia Southern undergraduate student work representing spaces both real and fantastical. Work ranges from digital to traditional media—painting, drawing, and illustration.

Students featured in the exhibition are Eleanor Ferrara, Carter Jackson, Emily Oren, Kimberly Page, Ray Petite, Allyson Schuman and Virginia Skinner. The show was curated by B.F.A. student Chloe Coulibaly.

Creative Internships with GS Football

The Georgia Southern Football program is looking for student interns to be a part of its GATA Lifestyle social media accounts and recruitment materials.

This opportunity would be great for animators, photographers and designers interested in pursuing a field in fast-paced media and athletics. They are seeking individuals who want to push the envelope, work outside of the norm and develop the unexpected. The students would experience day-to-day operations and gain the understanding of timely graphics/posts and will be able to analyze their impact.

Platforms would utilize tablets, phones and computers and would transition from Adobe CC software to Adobe’s relative apps for handheld devices.

Students would work with Georgia Southern sports information directors, the football coaching staff, as well as the players. Last year, the visual efforts created by the recruitment team were featured on respected marketing outlets within the industry (with all students involved receiving credit).

The need is this semester but may roll over into summer and fall.

Interested students should contact Athletic Foundation Director of Marketing & Communication Stephanie Neal. Portfolio of work will be required.
