Sept. 15, 2014 - Jan. 23, 2015 DSC launches fall season with free arts show and concert
Studio Arts Show
Installation work by Joanna White, assistant professor of art and program coordinator at Eastern Florida State College. Thematically, White's work addresses concepts of mortality, eternity, permanence, impermanence, individuality and corporality. Contradictions in shape, material and titling allude to notions of distortions, displacement and paradox.
