In "Penwald: 8, 12 by 12 on Knees" Tony Orrico examines and explores his ability to transform his physical and mental endurance into visual compositions, using his body as a tool to outline a full range of motion.

"Penwald Drawings" is series of bilateral drawings in which Orrico uses both of his hands to draw. His performances are specific to a time and place but are not necessarily dependent on an audience. As Orrico contours and varies his positions — standing, kneeling, sitting and lying down — he is able to create marks that are seemingly similar, yet disparate. The end result of these efforts is a composition representing the transfer of the artist's physical and mental energies, an artifact to be left for future audiences.

SCAD presents "Meditations on Irony," a solo exhibition by Tibetan-born, British artist Gonkar Gyatso that illuminates his practice of interweaving traditional Buddhist iconography with the detritus of pop culture.

Exploring themes of identity, hegemony, globalization and hybridity, the exhibition features prints, posters and sculptural works from 2006-present, which have been constructed with thousands of stickers, paper collage and logos. Gyatso’s usurpation of our media-saturated environments and repetitive use of the Buddha illustrate his interest in ubiquity and accessibility. What once was "white noise" becomes a cacophony of carefully composed images, beautifully constructed into an iconographic form or word.

Presented as part of the 2014 deFINE ART program, Feb.18-21

Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The exhibition, artist talk and reception are free and open to the public.

"Manipulated" features the innovative work of 10 contemporary artists who use experimental and often alternative studio and darkroom photography processes to expand the expressive possibilities and structure of making photographs.

As digital cameras have steadily replaced film over the past decade, Photoshop and other editing tools have made photograph "processing" a largely computer-aided activity devoid of direct manipulation by the artist’s hand. The recent revival of more labor-intensive traditional and avant-garde techniques, such as camera obscura, daguerreotypes, photograms and Van Dyke prints, attests to an energized state of expression in contemporary photography and its creative potential to merge with drawing, collage, textiles, painting and installation.

The artists in "Manipulated" explore this fertile new ground in image making, and in the process, are directly influencing the future direction of conceptual photography.

Featured artists include:

  • Kim Anno
  • Radcliffe Bailey
  • Christopher Bucklow
  • Chuck Close
  • Dan Estabrook
  • Abelardo Morell
  • Richard Mosse
  • Mariah Robertson
  • Alison Rossiter
  • V. Elizabeth Turk

Lee Kit discusses his artistic practice and provides an overview of existing and new work in development. In Lee’s view, making work involves many personal choices and decisions that inform and give shape to the work. In a sociopolitical context, to make a choice to do something is already a statement. But what’s next, before reacting too fast and in a meaningless way?

Presented as part of the 2014 deFINE ART program, Feb. 18-21

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "American Byway: Selections from US Highway 80," a solo exhibition by SCAD professor and photography chair Rebecca Nolan. This body of work focuses on elements of the bypassed areas of rural America from coast to coast. Highway 80 is an interstate that was made obsolete due to construction of the modern freeway. Subsequently, the townships and various populated areas along this route have been neglected. Nolan’s understated photos capture delicate elements of a time and places passed by, remains of an America seemingly so far gone, yet still so near.

  • Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

SCAD presents "Y No Hay Remedio," a solo thesis exhibition by SCAD M.F.A. painting student Kalin Allen. Allen’s work focuses on a painting’s performative nature. Her intent is to examine the elements in which a relic holds multiple meanings, physically and metaphorically.

"Y No Hay Remedio" offers the possibility for paintings to depart and return to the stages of their creation, all while carrying the journey with them. The exhibition presents a selection of works that includes paintings, sculpture, text, digital image and objects, and Allen explores the answers and methods behind exploring the underlying and literal meanings the objects hold.

Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
