Cynthia Farnell and Creativity and Imagination in the Art of Childrena Welch Symposium exhibition conceived and coordinated by GSU Art Education Assistant Professor, Dr. Kevin HsiehThe public is invited to the reception on Thursday, January 16th, from 5 to 8PM.




A Gathering

A Gathering is a tightly focused four-artist exhibition featuring painting, drawing, prints and sculpture by the internationally recognized artists Dozier BellCatherine HamiltonJane Rosen and Kiki Smith. The curator, Cynthia Farnell, has selected pieces in which the artists use images of birds. Farnell says, “I’m interested in how the bird imagery functions in different ways as metaphors in each artist’s work. In Smith’s and Rosen’s prints, drawings and sculpture, the raptors and crows are clearly symbolic, tapping into mythical notions of the avian. Hamilton’s delicate representational watercolors of deceased sparrows are matter-of-fact, allowing the viewer to contemplate the circumstances of their deaths: window strikes, specimens and road kills, all encounters with humans in the environment. An ominous tone is also struck by Bell in her charcoal landscapes. The small size of her drawings is in contrast with her subject matter and adds to their mystery, with birds of prey wheeling in vast and stormy skies.”
