Graduating Senior Art Students Present Thesis Exhibition at UMF Gallery Brenda Bonneville, editor April 6, 2017 (Farmington, ME) The University of Maine at Farmington is pleased to present the graduating-senior art students’ thesis exhibition, Five to Nine. The show will run from April 13 through May 13, 2017 at both the UMF Art Gallery and the Emery Community Arts Center, with an opening reception at both venues on April 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Both galleries will showcase the work of James Corcoran, D.T. Shane Cynewski, Laura E. Dickey, Gabrielle Ganiere, Tim Stokes, and Corey Wallace. The Works in Five to Nine Five to Nine exhibits a collection of works that range conceptually through the humanization of strangers, deconstruction of nostalgia, the search for meaning, exploration of the uncanny, reflexivity of form and representation, and the exposure of consumption as an apathetic mechanism. Mediums include photography, film, sculpture from found objects and fabrics, animation, and drawings that use charcoal, wood, paint, and string. Together, this work creates an immersive environment that reintroduces the audience to the world they thought they knew. The 2017 senior art exhibit is sponsored by the UMF Arts Division.
