Campbellsville University’s “#underrepresented” art exhibit at The Pence-Chowning Art Gallery ends Friday, Nov. 15.
“#underrepresented” is a juried exhibition that opens the call for artists, who are considered what it means to be marginalized.
This exhibition offered a moment for artists such as students, faculty and staff at Campbellsville University to show the theme of the exhibition and how they see themselves to be “underrepresented.”
There were 15 artists’ work shown at the exhibition which included a variety of art medias.
Students of Campbellsville University who presented their artwork were Jenny Brunner, who had two films “A Writer’s Pen-demonium” and “Quill’s Trinket Treasure” as well as a mixed media 3-D art piece “Nest in the Cage.”
Serena Corbin, whose art piece was mixed media, showed “The Perks of an Introvert.”
Gil Hobbs presented a film “The Objection”; Germaine Dunn showcased two mixed media pieces named “The Price” and “Beneath the Surface.” Andrea Duvall made a portrait of her boyfriend out of graphite named “My Strength.”
Farrah Phillips presented two art pieces, one made out of ceramic called “Land, Sea, and Air,” the second out of acrylic paint named “Chi Chi.”
Hailey Robinson made an art piece out of charcoal named “Static Brained,” as well as a photograph “Malfunction.” Zane Wilkins also shared his art piece, a “Music Box,” which played music when opened.
Staff members who presented their pieces of artwork were Lucas Humphress who displayed two Polaroids, “Hollywood” and “Radio Station,” when he traveled to Los Angeles, Calif., and Alice Steele who showcased her two photographs of “Hummingbird Resting on Hummingbird” and “Autumn Flair.”
Faculty members who also presented were Starr Garrett, who displayed a handmade costume, the “Olivia-mourning costume.” Dr. Jennifer Garrison showcased two photographs “The Solitary Path” and “After the Pyroclastic Flow.”
Ashlee Matney did a paper on canvas called “Prismatic Symmetry,” and Stan McKinney showcased his photograph “Ford Front.”
Isaac Garrison, son of Dr. Shane and Dr. Jennifer Garrison, also showcased his photography artwork; they are on display as “H2O” and “The Butterfly and the Bee.”
Azucena Trejo Williams, assistant professor of art and design at Campbellsville University, said, “At the end of the day, someone, everyone has something.
“In a sense, this was really an open call for art- work because we’re all united, we’re all next to each other, with each other, in community together and that was at the essence of what I wanted this exhibition to be. I’m really pleased on how this exhibition turned out to be.”
