Three faculty showcasing in the Annual Faculty Exhibition, How Soon is Now? receive accolades for research-driven work: Sheila Goloborotko, Andrew Kozlowski, and Christopher Trice. Professor Goloborotko received the 2020 George W. Rainbolt Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Research Fund; Professors Kozlowski and Trice received the Research Enhancement Grants.
Goloborotko’s project, Print+ Sameness and Otherness in Contemporary Printmedia is a two-year research project, premering at the Hunterdon Art Museum (HAM) in New Jersey from May to September 2021. This exhibition will present a diverse scope of contemporary groundbreaking printmedia works produced by diversity artists: Artists with Disabilities, Trans, Queer, Latinx, Black, Brown, Bi-Racial, First Nations, American, and Naturalized American Artists. Together, all these expressions broadcast the voice of Sameness and Otherness in Contemporary American Print.
Kozlowski’s project, Routine Maintenance is a project that creates an opportunity for 24 artists to contribute new work as part of a themed portfolio of original prints titled “Routine Maintenance” which will be shown at UNF, and afterward be donated to the growing UNF Permanent Collection. This project responds to the COVID-19 pandemic through artistic insight and production, while enhancing and amplifying the practice of themed portfolios within the printmaking community.
Trice’s grant will support his upcoming solo exhibition at the University of South Carolina, Aiken. The as-yet untitled exhibition will feature work from a series inspired by the Department of Art, Art History, and Design’s Study Abroad Program in Italy, and is scheduled for March 23-May 7, 2021, at USCA’s Etherredge Center Visual Arts Gallery.
