“Illusory Permanence: the Persistence of Nature,” an exhibition by Appalachian State University Bachelor of Fine Arts candidate Katherine Meeks, will be on display through Dec. 13 in the Looking Glass Gallery, located in ASU’s Plemmons Student Union.

A reception will be held in the gallery from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

In “Illusory Permanence,” Meeks explores the relationship between the human desire for order and the tendency of nature toward disorder. Her combination of photography, ceramics, industrial objects and live plants creates an environment in which viewers can interact with her creative exploration of the persistence of nature in the manmade world.

Meeks will graduate from Appalachian in May 2014, with a BFA in studio art and a Bachelor of Science in art education (K-12). A N.C. Teaching Fellow, Meeks plans to teach in a North Carolina public school.
