USD Main Gallery to feature Photos Words and Robots
Students Justin Brunick, Matt Heller and Patrick Kern combine their talents to display photos that come off the wall and become real; words that take shape in three dimensional forms; and sculptures of robots that become characters.
Brunick, an art education and photography major from Yankton, S.D., uses photography as a visual diary, allowing viewers to see a visual representation of his feelings and ideas as seen through his eyes. He believes his desire to share those moments are what drove him to ultimately become a teacher. Heller, a graphic design major from Armour, S.D., hopes to push his artwork to exciting and uncharted territories using everything from photography to graphic design to works in the third dimension. Kern, a sculpture major, uses imagery such as robots to personify human emotions and other concepts with a strong sense of whimsy he gets from his own character. Kern, from Rapid City, S.D., plans to further his education in sculpture and to continue to create art.
A reception for the student artists is scheduled for Friday, April 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Main Gallery. The Main Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts is open at no cost to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. Tours and special showings during non-public hours are available upon request.
