BACKGROUND OF SELECTED EXHIBITS:
Experiment and Spontaneity: M.F.A Thesis Exhibition for Leanne Juliana examines the interaction of human personalities using clay, grout, and wood as mediums. She explores the myriad of relationships different individuals participate in on a daily basis. Juliana's vases represent the human psyche and its responses to life, shown as the tiles, spikes, lines, and colors.
Time Spent: M.F.A Thesis Exhibition for Mandy Burrow explores issues of death, eternity, and the passage of time in everyday life. Burrow sees transcendence in the commonplace and utilizes a variety of materials from teabags and coffee to old paper and cardboard boxes.
Interior Design Thesis Exhibition is a presentation of interior design M.F.A. thesis projects. Each graduate student is partnered with a professional interior designer for mentoring throughout the project, which benefits the students by providing them with professional feedback. Projects range from a design for a dormitory promoting academic success through the principles of Feng Shui to an Alzheimer's care facility addressing the needs of the entire family, integrating the community to an office, and a conference center that creates an environment encouraging cooperation, positive communication, and conflict resolution. The students in the exhibition are Stacey Bran, Anna Kucera, Cherilyn McCall, Caroline McCandlish, Elizabeth Reynolds, Meghan Shea, and Kristin Yeskel.
The Dimock Gallery provides a space on the GW campus for exhibitions curated by students of the Department of Fine Arts and Art History. These exhibitions include undergraduate and graduate student shows. A "rolling" schedule of exhibitions more experimental in nature is organized by the Department of Fine arts and Art History graduate and undergraduate students.
