Last fall, members of the Barry community, as well as the general public, got a chance to view the full spectrum of work produced by the University’s studio art faculty. On display at the Andy Gato Gallery from September 28-December 1, “Faculty Show 2012” included works by the following full-time and adjunct faculty members: Nichole Beltran, Duane Brant, Maria Brito, Angi Curreri, Natasha Duwin, Jason Galbut, Tracie Heller, Lisa Kaplowitz, Silvia Lizama, Venessa Monokian, Ray Morales, Ania Moussawel, Thomas Rockwell, Sara Rytteke, Scott Weber and Sommer Wood. The image “Backlit Columns, Miami, FL, 2012” (at right) by Fine Arts Chair Silvia Lizama is of the current State Roads 826/836 massive road work project and part of a body of work titled, “Sights of Construction.” “Stripped of vegetation and other identifying content, the photographs contain an ambiguous sense of time and place. Altered landscapes convey a juxtaposition of devastation and beauty, ruin and renewal and bear a striking resemblance to archeological remains of ancient cultures,” wrote artist/curator Jackie Otto Miller of Valencia College in Orlando, where Lizama recently exhibited the series. “Sights of Construction,” she noted, “explores the impulse of creating, recreating, mapping and transforming the environment over centuries and suggests a universal connection between distant and disparate cultures.”
