For six weeks, the Watkins Film Department will host a six-week artist residency featuring Allison Turner and Tom Maxis. Turner is known for her conceptual portraits with influences of social justice; Maxis’s works in mixed media have pushed artist boundaries. The visiting artists will merge their work to create pieces throughout Watkins’s campus. On October 26, 2016, at 5:30 PM, students can participate in a Q&A session with the artists. Other shows are scheduled on November 3rd and December 7th.
Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is an exhibition and sale of handmade goods from independent artists. This is a free event!
You will find talented artists handpicked by a select jury for their DIY chops and singular vision. There’ll be surprises at every booth including unique homegoods, clothing, punk-rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, plush toys, DIY kits, screen-printing, original art, locally produced food, and much more.
SUNDRIES, a show by artists and Watkins alumni Mali Hamilton and Tristan Higginbotham, navigates the spaces between objects, their histories, and our attachments to them. This show reflects on the life of objects, their ability to animate our sentiments and desires, and their condition as the residue of their owners and passersby. SUNDRIES consist of defunct items and residues that refer to the past while emitting presence. The objects and drawings presented here engage their shared space and each other through a game of telephone; the meanings of objects shift from work to work as they are filtered through formal processes and changes in context. SUNDRIES is a recollection of surfaces and a language of leftovers, monuments to the inconsequential, insignificant, and irrelevant.
Show will run until November 22nd.
