Kennesaw is not quite what it seems

August 15, 2012 by  

As the start of fall gets closer, so too does, Kennesaw State University Art Museum’s latest exhibition. Entitled ‘Not What it Seems’, it looks like being a highlight of the calendar.

The exhibition will feature works from Frances Trombly, Ian Weaver, and Mark Franchino. It is set to launch on August 20 through October 25, running in the Fine Arts Gallery. There will be a grand launch on August 30 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm, part of KSU’s Fall Grand Opening.

It will be a challenging, yet entertaining, exhibition for the audience, which will ask them not only to look at the art with their eyes, but use their minds to analyze it. Unexpected materials will be used, while a certain amount of illusions will trick and captivate.

What society takes for granted has been challenged with the use of complex puzzles on a very personal, artistic and even metaphysical basis. Poster printing should capture these pieces nicely, with the prints of many of the works sure to prove popular with those attending.

Speaking ahead of the launch, the KSU School of Art and Design, Joe Thomas, said:

“I think seeing the ways the different artists’ work interacts will be fascinating.”

Thomas, who is also curating the exhibition, went on:

“They’ve never been shown together before. Getting a detailed look at the superb craftsmanship and technical skill required to make these objects will also be impressive.”

The Fine Arts Gallery, located in the Wilson Building, opens Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm and Wednesday and Thursday from 7:00 am – 9:00 pm.
