The University of Toledo Department of Art will be among the stars this spring, beginning Tuesday, April 14 in Ritter Planetarium. As part of the Planetarium program “Stars: Powerhouses of the Universe,” photographs made by students will be on display in the lobby gallery and on the dome as well.

The exhibition, titled “Faux Space,” is the third such photo show at the planetarium. The image on display were made in the Department of Art’s Fall 2014 introductory photo course, ART 2030: Photography, taught by Professor Deborah Orloff. Students were challenged to create photos that evoke a sense of space – in the extraterrestrial sense. They used a diverse range of materials to create their images including food, toys, pots, glitter, fire, lasers, smoke, and oils. All images were made with a DSLR camera; they are not computer-generated or taken from space.

The gallery images will be on display throughout the summer whenever Ritter Planetarium is open to the public.

Student artists featured in the exhibition include:
Shalissa Bailey, Jamie Campbell, Andrea Fackelman, Emily Frank, June Galvin and Danielle Hedger; Qiong Jia, Leanne Jones, Chariti Lockhard, Nicelle McCuchen, Kathlynn Meyer and Kayla Perez; Alexandra Ray, Daniel Rivera, Madison Roy, Jamie Snyder, Drew Tansel, Chelsea Thompson, Xueling Zhao and Yue Zhao.

PANORAMA on display at CVA Gallery through September 28

brightly colored mural/installation by Natalie Lanese

An installation by Natalie Lanese, whose “PANORAMA” will be on display in the CVA Gallery through September 28.

PANORAMA, an installation by Natalie Lanese, combines collage and pop patterns to set up narratives that address, oftentimes humorously, the more serious realities of American culture.  Lanese’s massive scale patterns transform into a geometric landscape in which the collaged elements create conceptual spaces and confront ideas of image vs. reality, depth, and depthlessness.

PANORAMA will be on display at the Center for Visual Arts Gallery. The opening reception will be held on Friday, August 23 from 6-8 p.m. at the Center for Visual Arts Gallery. The installation will remain on display through September.

Natalie Lanese has recently exhibited at Jack the Pelican Presents in Brooklyn, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA, and Scope International Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland.  Lanese is Assistant Professor of Art and Gallery Director at Siena Heights University in Adrian, MI and resides in Toledo, Ohio.

The Center for Visual Arts is located at 620 Grove Place in Toledo, adjacent to the Toledo Museum of Art. For more information, contact CVA Gallery Director Ben Pond.

“More Eyeballs,” “Section of the Neck,” and “Relax” are a few of the 11 works of art by University of Toledo students currently on display at the Imagination Station. Using the book Gray’s Anatomy as inspiration, students in Arturo Rodriguez’s Lithography class and Ben Pond’s Anatomy class collaborated on a large bound book project called Gross Anatomy. Students used lithography as the basis for their initial drawing and then embellished the pages with additional drawing media. Two copies of the large book were created and another series of prints was made for display. One book was donated to the library at the UT Medical Center, and the other to the Toledo Museum of Art library, where it is currently on view. The project was made during fall semester, 2012.

Works on display at the Imagination Station were created by Alyssa Brown, Stacey Cruzado, Sarah Emch, David Folck, Lisa Franko & Wes Rucker, Dylan Gallagher, Katie Heft, Dingzhong Hu, Josh Klein, and Shirley Mei.

This exhibition, like Grossology, runs through September 2. For more information about admission and hours of operation, visit the Imagination Station website at www.imaginationstationtoledo.org
