The artists included in this exhibition reflect the diverse artistic practices embraced by alumni of Flagler College’s Department of Visual Art over the past 20 years. The bodies of work vary in content, concept, method and material, and embody the values advocated by faculty, both past and present, in the department: a cultivation of individual creativity, critical reflection and historical consciousness.

The works in the exhibition encompass both abstract and representational painting and drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video, installation and textiles. Artists featured include Brianna Angelakis, Bon Antonetti, Matthew Anthony Batty, Jake Carlson, Kelly Crabtree, Libby Couch, Rachel de Cuba, Amanda Dicken, Amelia Eldridge, Kobe Elixson, Katie Evans, Tara Ferriera, Nicolas Fortney, Jenn Gulgren, Rebecca Hoadley, Eileen Hutton, Noah MacKenzie, Kevin Mahoney, Morgan Gesell Mudryk, Rebecca Mutz, Derek O’Brien, Joseph Provenza, Jason Tetlak and Zach Thomas.

Amy Galpin, Ph.D., will serve as the exhibition’s juror. She is chief curator at the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami. She is formerly the curator at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum of Rollins College and associate curator for Art of the Americas, at the San Diego Museum of Art. In addition to exhibitions at these institutions, she has also curated exhibitions for the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, the Pasadena Museum of California Art, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Orlando Science Center, and the Mennello Museum of American Art in Orlando, among other spaces.
