Ten years after graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design a reunion exhibition was organized titled At Second Glance: SCAD Alumni Photography Exhibition, MFA Class of 2002.
The show was held in 2013 at the Pei Ling Chan Gallery in Savannah,
Georgia. Many classmates and friends descended upon Savannah for the
gallery reception. For many this was the first time back in Savannah
The photographs featured in Low Country Revisited
are works created in response to this return to Savannah by Ryan
Flathau, Nicole Jacobs, Darrell Kincer, Gray Lyons and Linda Wilson. For
those that have not visited the Low Country, it is a magical place that
permeates the soul, creating a lifelong bond. This bond continually
beckons for your return.

those flowers, pearls and places of delight all
about? What set of ideals really run
through the art of the 18th century? Enlightenment? This innovative
art history course takes on the lineage of sources beneath the Late Baroque
and/or Rococo Painting into the shades of which we see in the present. The
units are organized according to chronology, geography, philosophy and theme,
with special attention given to the main centers of production.
TR 1:30-2:50, no
prerequisites; recommended for both art history and painting students.
Reception and lecture: Friday, November 7, 12:00-2:00 p.m.
Georgetown College is pleased to present Teach Talent. A team of researchers, Catherine
Shelburne and Miranda Sosby, will explore the current issues in art education.
Why is talent important? How can it be recognized? How can it be nurtured? Recent
reports claim that there is a desperate need for talent outside the realm of
what higher education provides. Creativity, emotional intelligence, and true enjoyment,
lacking or not, are skills that can be
taught. By simply implementing a few proposed ideas into the secondary school
programs today, the team suggests, we can significantly increase our talent-pool
for the future.
The project will launch at the Cochenour Gallery and run
through November 21, with an opening reception on Friday, November 7 from 12:00
to 2:00 p.m. The related presentation by Ms. Shelburne will begin at 12:30 p.m.,
to be followed by a brief Q&A session. The gallery will host Teach Talent’s direct proposals,
interactive teaching tools, and their ideas for curricular/content managing. All
events are free and open to the public.
Both Catherine Shelburne and Miranda Sosby are 2014 BA candidates at Georgetown College.

Grand Gesture, Paintings by Boris Zakic, will be on exhibit August 14 –September 27, 2014 at PUBLIC, the LVAA’s gallery in Downtown Louisville.
A subtle examination of mark making expands to embrace sweepingly romantic pictorialism in an ambitious new exhibition from Zakic. In the large canvases reminiscent of the late Baroque or Romantic periods, Zakic combines what might seem like conflicting elements into the magnificent allegories of love with a lush, continental grandeur.
“Initially, the gestures were to have an unparalleled ‘airiness,’ as if extensions to an evening breeze or a kind of bird song you may hear in the mornings,” explains Zakic. Brushstrokes, simultaneously abstract and highly realistic permeate representational images and evoke art movements that are, on their surface, in opposition to the modern sensibility of Zakic’s recent projects. If you have seen his Shhh, Flicker (Galerie Hertz, 2014) or the Painting at The New Albany Bicentennial Public Art Project (2013-2015), the Grand Gesture will rather surprise and perhaps amaze you.

Zakic has taught at Georgetown College since 2000, where he teaches a popular painting course for art majors entitled Impasto Mannerisms. The course is dedicated to the study of gesturalist painting almost exclusively. In 2010 Zakic received the Frank F. Weisberg Award for Excellence in Painting from the Louisville Visual Art Association. In addition, a concurrent exhibit, Grand Gesture: Sublime, will be at Eastern Kentucky University’s Fred Parker Giles Gallery (link) August 18 – September 12, 2014.
