Art & Art History

Sewanee: The University of the South

The study of art and art history significantly enriches a liberal-arts education, especially in a world that is increasingly shaped by images and the exchange of visual information through a variety of media. The Department's two majors, one in art history and the other in studio art, prepare individuals for a lifelong engagement with visual culture by providing a grounding in the methodological, technical, expressive and analytical skills employed by artists and art historians.

Transparency and Impressions: 2014 graduating exhibition by Sewanee art majors

April 6, 2014

This year’s senior art exhibition entitled Transparency and Impressions explores the multiple implications of transparency and what it means to make a second impression. Many of the artists literally use transparent materials such plastic, glass, or light projections or depict transparent forms such as a ghostly king, unfurling smoke, or still water. Transparency also refers to the state of being honest about one’s past experiences. Most of the collections represented in this exhibition explore the artists’ personal backgrounds or interior meditations. The University Art Gallery and the Department of Art and Art History of the University of the South announces an exhibition and presentations by the graduating class of 2014 Sewanee art majors. Please join us for the opening reception of the exhibition on Friday, April 11, at 4:30 p.m. in the University Art Gallery as well as the artists' talks from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12, in Convocation Hall.
