Gulf Coast State College Hosts "Redemption" Art Exhibit
The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College is proud to present "Redemption," an art exhibit featuring work from seven artists from across the United States. These artists have contemplated the idea of redemption through painting with results as diverse as the people who made them.
While some address redemption in its most literal, theological meaning, others take a broader approach and focus on the idea of a journey, transformation, or self-actualization and self-perception. The overarching theme of the show is best described by the following excerpt from Victor Hugo writing about his novel Les Misérables: "A progress from evil to good, from injustice to justice, from falsehood to truth, from night to day, from appetite to conscience, from corruption to life; from bestiality to duty, from hell to heaven, from nothingness to God. The starting point: matter, destination: the soul. The hydra at the beginning, the angel at the end."
Participating artists are Dina Brodsky, Gary Chapman, Megan Ewert, Richard Heipp, Logan Marconi, Kymia Nawabi, and Holly Scoggins. The art exhibit will open the evening of November 15, with a reception from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (Room 112) until December 5. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, please contact Pavel Amromin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
