The McCutchan Art Center/Pace Galleries is excited to present two exhibitions to complete the fall semester, -RHIZA: an installation of experimental works, by Katherine Watts and the 2021 Senior Seminar Exhibition.

Katherine Watts ’07 is an alumnus of USI who recently received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Louisville. -RHIZA a collection of artworks that focuses on an immersive experience of local ecology, as well as the dichotomous relationship of humanity and nature. It is presented through the eyes of the artist, eco-philosophy, eco-feminism, mycology, and metaphor.

The 2021 Senior Seminar Exhibition features the creative work of ten studio art, graphic design, interactive media, and illustration students. The senior art and design seminars are capstone courses for art and art education majors and combine discussion of current aesthetics issues in the visual arts with practical knowledge in career or graduate school preparation as well as evaluation of the student artistic growth and potential. This group exhibit is the culmination of these courses and a high point in the art majors’ careers at USI.

Participants in the show include Laisha Diaz De Leon, Kassiti Fink, Jade Hatcher, Ally Hinton, Mitchell Marcrum, Jerrith Morrison, Kelsey Parker, Faith Spahr-Munoz, Elizabeth Vanada, and Joely Will

At 4:30pm on Thursday, October 21, Katherine Watts will  give an artist talk about her work and the exhibition. The lecture will be held in the Performance Center, attached to the University Center East. 

These exhibitions will be displayed in the galleries from October 18 through December 10.
