Notions of Place: Four Alumnae, Four Interpretations
January 26 – February 24, 2017. Opening Reception: Thursday, January 26, 5:30–7:30pm, with a gallery talk at 6pm.
This exhibition features works by four McDaniel alumnae, including Caitlin Bennett, a 2013 graduate from Bothell, WA, Sara Caporaletti, a 2014 graduate from Damascus, MD, Julia “Cheeny” Celebrado-Royer, a 2014 graduate from Baltimore, and chanan delivuk, a 2008 graduate from Baltimore.
Caitlin Bennett displays postcards from her “Greetings from America” series created in response to the media coverage of the race riots in Ferguson, MO, and Baltimore, while Sara Caporaletti displays her recent mixed media work examining her experiences as a practicing Catholic. A Filipino artist, Julia “Cheeny” Celebrado-Royer creates installations, sculptures and conceptual works using discarded, recycled and re-purposed materials. In addition, chanan delivuk uses new media, including photography, video and audio, to create installations that focus on family, conversation and food, such as “navigating family in an unfamiliar place” about her trip to Croatia.
