Carly Brand’s exhibition, FAUXCHELLA, is a series of relief printed posters created for imaginary bands hosting nonexistent gigs at nonexistent venues. These band names explore the whimsical nature of many indie labels as does their accompanying imagery. For more information about Carly Brand, visit her website http://carlybrandarts.com/. The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College at the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue.
Alyssa Minnick’s exhibition, Fluid, explores nature, color and the impact of humankind on Earth. Her artistic practices span printmaking, drawing, painting, and some digital work. Her current work illustrates different water masses that have potentially changed over the years due to human neglect, pollution, and maritime activities; she uses these surroundings to illustrate her experience at the given time she was in a certain location, knowing that when she revisits, it will have changed. More information about the artist can be found at http://alykayarts.com. The Student Art League Gallery is located in the basement of Wesley Chapel at Wesleyan.
Matthew Powell’s exhibition, Delivery Serviced, examines the process of character development while challenging cliché concepts within the adult film industry. Powell creates dynamic characters through repetitive drawing and finalizes their image through a graphic cover. Using a satirical approach, his work explores topics made taboo through socialization. NOTE: Powell’s exhibition contains work that some viewers may find offensive due to the suggestive subject matter. The Corner Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue.
