Landmark College celebrates three exhibits by faculty and guest artists

PUTNEY-Landmark College invites the public to a free reception on Friday, April 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. that celebrates three art exhibits currently on display on its Putney campus.

The reception will take place in the Fine Arts Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building on the southeast corner of campus. That space is hosting the "Integrated Arts Faculty Exhibition," and includes works by Landmark College faculty members Meg Baronian, Annie Ewaskio, Christie Herbert, Cynthia Ludlam, Humberto Ramirez, John Rose, Samuel Rowlett, Eric Stewart, and Luke Strosnider.

"This exhibition highlights the scholarship of our art faculty and their contributions to their fields of study," Samuel Rowlett, associate professor of art at Landmark College and the current director of gallery exhibits, said in a news release. "The works on display give both students and the greater Landmark community the opportunity to explore, in-person, the diverse themes, media, and methods of their art professors' areas of research, and how this research informs the teaching and learning that happens in the studios of the Fine Arts Building."

The foyer of the Fine Arts Gallery currently hosts a solo exhibition by action sports photographer Katie Lozancich. Originally from the Sacramento, California, area, Lozancich is an award-winning freelance storyteller and artist who creates content and stories for countless brands and magazines, including Teton Gravity Research, Red Bull, Visit Vermont, and Freehub Magazine.

A third exhibition, currently on display in the Nicole Goodner MacFarlane Science, Technology, and Innovation Center features Andrae Green. The Kingston, Jamaica-native artist says his sensibilities were shaped by the comic books of Marvel and DC, the only accessible art sources in the impoverished ghetto where he grew up.

Economic hardship and social upheaval, compounded by the threat of violence, led Green to take refuge in art, school, and church. He says this sparked a deep inner world he explored by creating comic characters that embodied the hope and freedom he yearned for.

In 2006, Green was awarded the Chase Prize by the Jamaican government to attend the New York Academy of Art, where he earned his Master of Fine Arts in painting.

Both the Lozancich and faculty exhibits are on display until Sunday, April 21, when they'll be replaced with an exhibit featuring works by Landmark College students in the Integrated Arts program. The Green exhibit is on display through June 2024.
