Written by: Museum Educator Matthew Pattersonnewview5

For this year’s edition of New View, students from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts were asked to create work in response to the exhibition Archipenko: A Modern Legacy

In preparation for their art-making, students viewed works in this exhibition which offers a fresh assessment of Alexander Archipenko, emphasizing the artist’s European and American practice as a pioneer of modern art. The exhibition highlights the artist’s manifold abstractions of the figure and the breadth of his creative legacy that has informed our thinking of modern sculpture.

From these initial impressions, the students of Hillary Hogue, Barry Wilson, and Alyce Walcavich then returned to their classrooms to create their interpretations. The media used is as diverse as the resulting products. While some students worked in acrylic on canvas others chose to work in ink and mixed media. Still others used digital media and even sculpture as they approached the subject of abstract figuration.

The next time you visit the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens be sure to stop and explore the works of these talented local students.
