The Art Minor Exhibition Part I and II - 2015

The Art Minor Exhibition Part I: Sally Anne Greenwood, Shelby Monahan,Whitt Sellers and Amber Smith - April 14-19, 2014

"In this series of photographs I focused on capturing moments found in ordinary lives and ordinary places. I began observing the surrounding culture in rural Tennessee and followed them through time and space to better understand how their heritage and lifestyle grounds people for
life. Gaining a better understanding of the history of Appalachia triggered many interests in my work.” Sally Anne Greenwood

"Although they cannot be seen, psychological mechanisms, personal, and social histories all have a profound impact on an individual’s present and future. My art seeks to examine these invisible phenomena and their consequences by giving them a physical manifestation on the human body.” Shelby Monahan

"Many of my images invoke feelings of repetition or cyclicality, connectedness, inevitability, longing, uncertainty, and degradation to me. Even though not all of my photos including physical representations of nature or is processes, I find it is necessarily connected to these concepts. Much like the old adage, “history is doomed to repeat itself”, I find that many people, myself included, go through life consistently making the same choices and mistakes always hoping the results will be somehow different.” Whitt Sellers

"Loss, in regard to the human experience, can mean anything from loss of childhood memories, of innocence, or of something tangible like a loved one. These things bind humans together and create a common ground on which all can relate and I hope this is attained when my work is explored by others.” Amber Smith

Part II of the Art Minor Exhibition will run from April 22 to 30, and includes folios submitted for the Environmental Studies Arts and Humanities comprehensive exam.
