August 4th, 5PM – 7PM • Anne Hunter Galleries | 25 Central Square, Seaside, FL
Katelyn Gummere | A Teen Retropsective
On Friday, August 4, please join us from 5PM – 7PM at the 25 Central Square to view A TEEN RETROSPECTIVE by artist Katelyn Gummere.
Pulling from her experiences as a teenage artist, Katelyn Gummere’s artworks are a cerebral synthesis of youthful explorations and social constructs. The retrospective will include three genres of art. A senior portfolio, photographs printed on metal, and fluid paintings. “The central idea of my concentration is to reveal the fading passion of art students and inner struggles. I used infrared photography and transparency,” explains the artist. “My work embodies the feelings of pressure which art students endure on a day-to-day basis. I conveyed these feelings with the use of infrared photography. I used transparencies layered over photos to represent the deception of balance in isolation. I explored the subjects and themes using these techniques as a way to express the difficulties and challenges of the art field.”
