PIZZAZZ (Gallery Write Up)

Gallery Write UP.jpg

About 1 week ago, I attended the PIZZAZZ art exhibit that was held in the Brent Llewellyn gallery at Alfred State College in Alfred New York. This exhibit showcased the new freshmen’s work in the Digital Media and Animation  program. The exhibit consisted of hand made paper masks and the artists drawings of them, charcoal drawings of chairs and sketches of paper drawn and different perspectives. I was very excited for this exhibit because I honestly loved learning to draw using charcoal and it is not  pretty much the only thing I draw with.

The individuality among the variety of masks was astonishing! But, the one that stood out to my the most was done by Haley Martin. This piece had excellent contrast!  Even though it was about a 60/40 contrast, It was still very eve catching, and 50/50 is boring anyways. You cant really tell as much in picture, but in person, the way the texture of the paper broke through the charcoal and became visible was extremely and almost unintentionally beautiful. Another thing I really enjoyed what the composition of this piece. I really liked that it wasn’t dead center on the page. The thing that was most appealing about this piece wast the intricacy of the lines that the artist used and how she captured every little shadow and fold.
