APSU Art Faculty (Kell Black, Josh Gumiela, Barry Jones, and Cynthia Marsh) will participate in a collaborative 2-week Summer Residency Program for high school students. We invite all interested high school artists to apply. further information: http://www.apsu.edu/watauga

Watauga Arts Academy at Austin Peay State University

Spend two weeks of the summer producing what you and your friends have only imagined; create characters that move, run, and pop out of books, across computer screens, onto the sides of tall buildings, and into the real time world of lights, sound, and action. Sharpen your skills, stretch your imagination, engage with your peers — create narratives that cross disciplines.

The visual art workshops at the Watauga Arts Academy will begin with traditional skill‐building exercises in the disciplines of drawing, printmaking, photography, and computer imaging. The focus of the workshops, however, will quickly transition to the world of contemporary storytelling through animation, multimedia performance, creative book arts, and narrative web design. In today’s creative marketplace, successful visual storytellers must be collaborative and interdisciplinary. At Watauga, as you build a stronger understanding of your craft, you will have many opportunities to work cooperatively across disciplines with the latest technology.

The Goldsmith Press is Participating in the Nashville Print Crawl on October 3

Print Crawl

 

This Print Crawl is a little like a scavenger hunt. Pick up your poster template at Sawtooth Printhouse and make your first print from 6-7p.m. Then, it’s a free for all, y’all. Swing by all of the print shops to complete your poster. Finish your poster at Grand Palace. Stick around after for a drink and to check out how your friend’s posters look. If you miss a shop, sorry – you’re gonna have a gap in your poster, which will be sad but not the end of the world.

The Goldsmith Press’s work be at Platetone, 535 Fourth Ave S. Nashville from 6 – 9 pm on Thursday October 3.

Professor Cindy Marsh Discusses Her Residency in Tanzania as Part of the Provost Lecture Series

Cynthia Marsh, professor of art, will discuss her three-week residency in Tanzania as part of the next Provost Lecture Series session at APSU. She will speak at 3 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 16 in the Morgan University Center, Room 303. The event is free and open to the public. The title of her talk is “Mambo Poa – A Cultural Exchange in Tanzania.”

“Text and Textiles (A SAMPLER)” Opens on February 13 in the Trahern Gallery

Centuries ago, before the appearance of printed books, stories and personal histories were set down on meticulously hand-embroidered fabrics. It’s little wonder then that the word “text,” which originated around the 14th century, was derived from the Latin word “textus,” which loosely means “to weave.”

The connection between the two words is the subject of a fascinating new art exhibit at Austin Peay State University’s Trahern Gallery – “Text and Textiles (A SAMPLER).”

The exhibition opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 13. Curators Cynthia Marsh, APSU professor of art, and Paul Collins, Trahern Gallery director, intend to present works by contemporary artists that have referenced the historic and/or vernacular use of text and textiles into their creative practices.

“Many contemporary artists that use materials and techniques relating to historic fabric design, also use text as an important element in their work,” Marsh said. “Quilts, for example, have a long history of using text for various political or documentary purposes.”

The Text and Textiles exhibit runs through Feb. 29 and is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Collins at collinsp@apsu.edu.
