Exhibition: A one night only exhibition with work by Visiting Professor of Sculpture Stacey Holloway's summer Source Material course students. Featuring: Katie Gonzalez, Loryn Green, Daniel Heron, Wesley Holmes, Angela Isbell, Kelsey Parrish, Jacob Phillips, Aaron Scott, and Ryan Tucker.

In the summer interdisciplinary course Source Material, students were engaged in projects that consider alternative source materials for the construction of installations and sculptural based artworks. Researching contemporary artists that use untraditional sculptural materials – such as Ann Hamilton, Tara Donovan, Clive Murphy, Wolfgang Laib, Berndnaut Smilde, and Sakir Gokcebag – the students experimented with appropriate material choices and the relationships between materials, process, form, and content.

During the first two weeks, students completed single-day projects, each with various materials, such as powders, liquids, expired media, as well as other common household items. Using their gained knowledge through these quick projects, students were then assigned three formal projects - a recycled, a terrain, and a final of their choosing.

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to have a greater appreciation of what can be accomplished through the use of easily obtained objects as well as an expanded vocabulary and understanding of contemporary art.

Works by each student will be exhibited in a one night only exhibition, Wednesday, June 18, in the UAB Visual Arts Gallery in the Humanities Building, 900 13th St. S. from 5:30-7:30pm. For more information, contact Stacey Holloway at shollow@uab.edu
