Meditation is arguably the most ancient, powerful, yet simple spiritual practice in the world. It is known in various forms in nearly all times and cultures, and plays a part in every religious tradition.

Katherine Sherwood’s Art 164 examines how meditation can affect art both in terms of practice and content. Artworks displayed in both the Art Practice Department lobby and Worth Ryder Gallery investigate concepts driven by our understanding of visual art done in contemplative practice.

Students produced projects that encompass prayer beads, healing scrolls, collaborative drawings inspired by artist Emma Kunz, and interpretive birds based on conference of the birds by Sufi poet Attar.

Faux ShowSculpture students in Daniel Nevers’ ART 133 Meaning & Material explore questions of authenticity and “faking it” in this survey show of works ranging from the intimate to the monumental. Using a variety of materials and processes, artists employ strategies such as material simulation, doubling, and scale shifts to consider sculptural concepts about form and space, the pedestal, the figure, and replicas.

What makes an object genuine and, conversely, how do we spot a fake? Perhaps none of us can say for sure, though the works in this exhibit approach the topic with wit, insight, and humor.
