First Friday Art Opening at Generator: “Cake Can Mean a Lot of Things”

Champlain College Creative Media Student Exhibit

April 26 – May 2, 2014

Opening Reception: First Friday, May 2nd from 5 – 8pm

This student showcase for the seven graduating Seniors in Champlain College’s new Creative Media BFA program represents a diverse cross-section of media. Works in the show make innovative use of photography, filmmaking, digital painting, oil painting, 3D animation, sculpture, installation, creative writing, printmaking, sonic environments and audience interaction pieces. The show reflects the broad focus of the CREM.BFA program as well as the evolving landscape of art, as it becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, as media mix and boundaries blur. The show’s title has become a phrase used by this group of young artists to poke fun at the often pseudo-intellectual/philosophical nature of how people speak about art. This is a group that tries not to take itself too seriously – young people who do not put themselves up on a pedestal for being artists, but who are passionate and engaged in their art nonetheless.
