Graduating Senior Exhibition to be Held at Bry Art Gallery

The Bry Art Gallery at the University of Louisiana at Monroe is currently showing a graduating senior exhibition by two May Bachelor of Fine Arts recipients. Coby Winn of West Monroe is displaying her senior portfolio in ceramics, while Logan Reulet of Plaquemine is showing his senior portfolio in painting.

Ms. Winn's exhibition consists primarily of wheel-thrown glazed stoneware traditional utilitarian ware. Many of her pieces were fired by the raku technique, with some "after fire" decorative objects such as leather, pine straw or horsehair added to the objects. Selected pieces are very outsized, with wheel-thrown efforts constructed in sections, and others in a coil based hand-built presentation.

In support of this collection of jars, bowls, bottles, vases and other containers, were deconstruction pieces and some works more akin to sculpture. The sculptural submissions consist of non-objective stoneware pieces, figurative wood and leather assemblages as well as deconstructed plaster human busts.

Reulet's exhibition consists of acrylic and oil pigments on canvas, often augmented with charcoal. His imagery is predominantly figurative with images placed in recognizable environments and others in a solid red field. The artist employs multiple panel compositions, plus embellishments of fabric and other assemblage additions in his compositions.
The Winn and Reulet exhibition will hold a closing reception on Friday evening, July 16 at 6:30 pm in the Bry Art Gallery. Normal hours of the gallery are 8-4 on weekdays.
