Catherine J. Smith Gallery at Appalachian State University presents “Friggatriskaidekaphopbia: BFA Senior Studio Exhibition Fall 2013.”

The exhibition is on view from Dec. 2 to 13 and includes work by the candidates for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in studio art. These student artists are exploring a wide variety of studio techniques, including photography, fibers, metals, installation, ceramics, performance and multimedia projects.

The gallery is showcasing works from the following artists: Palmer Lanier Bradshaw, Bailey Ewing, Holly Felice, Jennifer Harley, Brittney Mitro, Becca Vaughan, Leann Rafferty, Emily Smith and Laura Seals. Katherine Meeks’ project will be on view at the Looking Glass Gallery in Plemmons Student Union.

For the past year, these students have been working with Gary Nemcosky, professor in the ASU Department of Art.

“The Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition at the Catherine J. Smith Gallery happens only twice a year, but it is highly anticipated by our exhibiting and graduating students for years,” Nemcosky said. “This semester, the show will feature a fascinating range of works from fine metals, mixed media fibers, mixed and found media fibers and performance, mixed process photography, photography installation, ceramic installations, installation/performance, mixed media sculpture featuring melting sugar and digital interactive media projected from an El Camino onto buildings, beginning with Wey Hall itself. This semester’s exhibition is a great representation of what goes on in the art department — a very exciting place to be.”

A reception for the artists will take place Friday, Dec. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the gallery. A reception for Meeks’ exhibition will also take place Dec. 13, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Looking Glass Gallery.

The Catherine J. Smith Gallery is located in the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts at 733 Rivers St. on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone. Admission is free for all events and programs. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and during special events.
