The Marietta College Art Department is conducting an opening reception for “Present, Near and Deep: Photographic Works on Paper by Robyn Moore,” from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Friday, February 17th, on the third floor of the Hermann Fine Arts Center. The exhibition is being hosted in Gallery 310.
Moore is a photographer and filmmaker originally from Virginia. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. At present she is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, and a candidate for the Ph.D. in Visual Arts at the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia. She describes her work as follows: “My goal as an artist have, over time, come to include not only investigations of form and technique but, more importantly, a commitment to creating images that ask questions about human relationship to environments. My photographs, prints, and films express a desire for connection to the materiality of the present and a longing for information about the past. Each image is both a symbol of life and glimpse of extinction.”
Gallery 310 at Marietta College aims to present diverse and stimulating exhibitions, which will enrich the artistic culture and education of the campus, community, and region. Gallery 310 supports teaching, learning, and exploration in the liberal arts through rotating exhibitions and related programs. Gallery 310 is a place for intellectual curiosity, shared programming with the greater campus community, and a teaching space for students looking to enhance his/her experience for future careers in gallery and museum related fields.
The exhibition, opening and lecture are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are noon-4:00 p.m. on Monday & Wednesday, 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and noon-5:00 p.m. on Saturday or by appointment.
