Grayscale artworkEven Better Shades of Grey

Artist: Works by students from the Visual Concepts class (Fine Arts department)
Exhibit dates: Mar. 25 – May 5
Location: Science and Engineering Building 1st and 2nd floor office lobbies

Even Better Shades of Grey includes a series of painterly sculptures that explore the possibilities of the black and white value scale. Students worked with the principles of repetition and continuity in design, while also exploring painting styles that are traditional as well as experimental. These pieces combine approaches that include the predictable and the unpredictable through processes that are cathartic, intuitive and also plan- and rule-based. What results is a collection of unique works that showcase "Better Shades of Grey."

The show is a follow up to Better Shades of Grey that was on display in the fall of 2013.
