The AU Visual Arts department hosted an ice cream social on Friday, September 12th. All art students were invited to get to know the different art clubs, their fellow classmates, and their professors. Even a few alumni decided to make an appearance and eat some ice cream with friends.

Diane Kilgore Condon, Greenville-based artist and founder of the ArtBomb Studios, gave an inspiring gallery talk at Thrift Library’s Vandiver Gallery on Thursday, September 4th. Both students and professors came to ask thought-provoking questions, hear her artist’s statement, and discuss the symbolism in her work.

Diane’s show will be in the gallery until October 3rd, so be sure to plan a visit before it’s gone!

Art 106 self portraits

An excited and relieved group of Foundations students proudly shows off the results of their hard work. These conceptual, abstract self portraits were painted with gouache, each illustrating a unique aspect of the students’ individual personalities.

On January 25, members of the AU AIGA Student Group went to Atlanta to visit the Paul Rand exhibition at MODA. It was a great opportunity to see the work of a brilliant design legend, explore the city, and spend some time with friends.
