Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Art

October 28, 2019 – January 24, 2020

Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Art students visited the Weise Gallery earlier this year as one of the stops on a walking tour of the campus given by Brian Sturdivant, Director of UMB Strategic Initiatives and Community Partnerships and accompanied by art teacher Martin Goggins. The students viewed Maryland’s First Lady Yumi Hogan’s exhibit and gained inspiration for their own art realizing that the works on display were about nature which opened their eyes to creating artwork where observation becomes intuitive.  Parts of the exhibition are from students’ formal study of flowers and/or nature. Other students developed the abstract qualities of nature.

During the process of creating the art pieces, students were introduced to the impasto process (the process or technique of laying on paint or pigment thickly so that it stands out from a surface) which can be viewed in the works on display in the Weise Gallery located on the 1st floor of the Library.
