SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University Art Galleries 2013 Art War winner Corinne Beardsley of Nanticoke, MD, presents a new series of ceramic and mixed media sculptures in the exhibit “Head On” May 2-June 21 at the SU Art Galleries — Downtown Campus.
An artist’s talk with Beardsley is 6 p.m. Thursday, May 8. A reception is 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 16, during the Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District’s monthly 3rd Friday celebration.
Beardsley has worked and exhibited internationally, studying at Hartford Art School (CT) and the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, before earning her M.F.A. in sculpture from the New York Academy of Art in 2011. From there, she went to China for a residency at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing and Shanghai University.
In “Head On,” Beardsley presents a new series of sculptural heads, preserving gestural moments in clay. Some confront viewers with their monolithic scale and mass, while others pull viewers in for a more intimate interaction. They are inspired by human expression, emotion and play.
Sponsored by SU Art Galleries, admission is free and the public is invited. Gallery hours are noon-6 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, noon-4 p.m. Saturday, other times by appointment.
