Press Release

Attention Meredith’s emerging artists, submit your artwork on March 7-8 at the table near the front office of Gaddy-Hamrick Art Center! See this flyer for more information regarding specific dates, where to submit, and an explanation of the jurying process.

This exhibition gives students an incredible opportunity to experience having their art professionally juried and offers recognition along with cash prizes. The exhibition encourages a diverse range of art from graphic design, fibers, photography, print, pottery, sculpture, painting, drawing, and more. Located within the Johnson Hall Rotunda, artists will have their work on display for the campus community and beyond.

 

Meet the Juror: Stacey L. Kirby

Stacey L. Kirby is a queer, white-bodied, self-appointed civil servant from North Carolina who creates socially-engaged interactive performance art. For over a decade, Kirby has combined installation and performance to create ‘performative interactions’ in alternative, private and public spaces. Creative embodiment and trauma-informed practices inspire Kirby’s engagements with students, community performers and participants. She views performance as service which is rooted in Kirby’s 15-year practice of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. She received her 200-hr certification in yoga teacher training and continues her education with teachers in the Embodied Social Justice program. Kirby strives to honor and amplify unique lived experiences and is committed to working alongside BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ collaborators to unpack the oppressive culture of racism, hatred and violence that divides us.
