On Saturday, June 21st, College of Architecture + The Arts students and faculty will be featured in the opening of The Triumph of Detritus at 1310 Gallery. The show will include work by Master of Fine Arts candidates Gardner Cole Miller, Joe Locke, and Yasmin Khalaf and Associate Professor Pip Brant.
The Triumph of Detritus is curated by Lisa Rockford, tenured Assistant Professor at Broward College, a resident artist at Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts, and a founding member of 1310 Gallery. She describes the exhibition with the following statement: “[The Triumph of Detritus is] a group exhibition of artists that morph raw, found, and unexpected debris into works of splendor. Visceral materials are combined with exquisite embellishment, transforming castoffs into captivating works of beauty.” (Source: Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts)
Prominent guest judges from local arts establishments will visit the exhibition and vote for the top artists. Up to 10 artists will be selected for a total of at least $500 in cash prizes. The exhibit will be included in the Flagler Village Artwalk on June 28.
