The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern University presents Continuum, its 2015 alumni biennial exhibition, from January 12 – February 21 on campus in the Contemporary and University galleries of the Center for Art & Theatre. The exhibition includes an artist reception on Thursday, January 15, at 5 p.m. in the galleries. The events are free, and the public is welcome.

Continuum: The Alumni Biennial Exhibition features new and recent artworks by graduates of the Department. The exhibit highlights the continued creative endeavors of graduates in the fields of ceramics, sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, video, installation and printmaking. More than 25 alumni are featured in Continuum, with graduates from the 1990s exhibiting beside students who graduated as recently as 2014.

“The premise of Continuum is to showcase the diverse professional art practices that Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art graduates continue to portray throughout their post-graduate careers,” said Anthony Faris, interim gallery director. “We are proud to offer a home where our past students can share their accomplishments in the fields of art and design.”

Nick Nelson, director of the Springfield Art Museum in Missouri, juried this year’s exhibition. Nelson received his MFA from Georgia Southern University in 2004 and was formerly the executive director and curator of education of the Albany Museum of Art in Albany, Georgia.

“When jurying the exhibition, I tried to think about the overall exhibition as well as picking not only strong works by each artist, but also works that to me related to a body of work instead of an assortment of single works by artists,” he said.

The exhibition represents a strong, thematic representation of the talents and creative explorations of graduate students. Many of the artists are expected to attend the reception. Students and the public are invited to attend and meet the artists to discuss their recent works and professional experiences.

Continuum features new and recent artwork by Ashley Anderson, Craig Burkhalter, Eric Clarke, Lindsay Cox, Alessandra Dzuba, Courtney England, Scott Foxx, Ni-Ka Ford, Meghan Geertsema, Susan Harmon, Lois Harvey, Missy McCormick, Nicole Miles, Jean Gray Mohs, Max Rebel, Cynthia Rodday, Virginia Russell, Ansley Simmons, Janet Suarez, Eric Todd, Mariana Vieira and Jing Zhou.
