SCF Fine Art Gallery to Feature “Petrichor” by Swoon

February 28 – April 3, 2013
SCF Fine Art Gallery, Bradenton, FL

State College of Florida, Manatee- Sarasota (SCF) Fine Art Gallery will feature the exhibit “Petrichor” by Swoon in an opening reception from 6 – 8 p.m., Feb. 28, at the Fine Art Gallery at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. West.

Prior to the reception, Swoon will host an artist’s talk at 5 p.m.in the Fine Art Gallery. The SCF Chamber Choir, under the direction of Melodie Dickerson, will honor Swoon with a performance of Eric Whitacre’s “Water Night.”

“Petrichor” is the scent of the first rain upon the earth after a long dry spell and derives from the Greek name of the fluid that flows through the veins of the gods. Swoon selected “Petrichor” as the title of her new site-specific installation, which exalts ordinary life as it unfolds.

For the last 14 years, Swoon has been involved in an ongoing exploration of people’s relationships to their environments. The artist’s initial impetus to create interventions in the urban landscape continues to unfold in a variety of ways.

From 2006-2009, she constructed and navigated flotillas of rafts made from recycled materials down the Mississippi and Hudson rivers and across the Adriatic Sea from Slovenia to Venice, Italy.

Since 2008, Swoon has been working independently and in collaboration with Transformazium, a group of artists and activists, on community-based projects in the town of Braddock, Penn.

She has partnered with the group Konbit Shelter since 2010 for an ongoing project to construct a community center and a home in earthquake-devastated Haiti, bringing her creativity to the reconstruction effort.

Swoon also is currently working on the construction of a musical house called “Dithyrambalina” with the New Orleans Airlift.

In addition to her community-based work, the artist maintains a studio and installation-based practice of drawing, printmaking and the construction of architectural installations and sculptures around the world.

Swoon is a resident of Brooklyn, New York, where she attended the Pratt Institute from 1998 to 2001.

On Feb. 28 at 8 p.m., the SCF Symphony Orchestra will present “Vive la France!” and music by French composers.

Exhibit dates are Feb. 28 – April 3. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The gallery will be closed for Faculty/Staff Professional Development Day on March 1. For more information, call Joe Loccisano, gallery manager, at 941-752-5225.

From the Museum of American Finance in New York City

As a part of “Project GET$MART,” a student financial literacy program at the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), the SCF Fine Art Gallery will host an opening reception for “Tracking the Credit Crisis: A Timeline” from 6 – 8 p.m., Nov. 30, at the Fine Art Gallery at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. West.

Prior to the opening reception, guest lecturer Dr. Wendy Dickinson, a liberal arts instructor from Ringling College of Art and Design (RCAD),will present “Multivariate Data Display for Contemporary Consumers” at 5:30 p.m. and share examples of work by students in her undergraduate course, Visualizing Statistics.

The featured exhibit, “Tracking the Credit Crisis: A Timeline,” from the Museum of American Finance, traces the development of the recent financial crisis considered to be the most severe and complex economic and financial challenge in modern U.S. experience.

Presented as a monumental graphical wall, the timeline begins with the bursting of the United States housing bubble in late 2006 and traces the trillions of dollars injected into the private sector in 2008-2010 by the U.S. government. President Barack Obama’s stimulus package of almost $800 billion was part of the stabilization effort to forestall a financial collapse in a global environment that experienced a $40 trillion loss in wealth. The U.S. government’s actions represent a watershed moment in American economic and political history.

The exhibition is a collaborative effort by the SCF Fine Art Gallery, SCF business faculty, members of the Project GET$MART team at SCF and Dr. Dickinson and her students from RCAD.

Funded by the Financial Literacy Program Grant from the Florida College System Foundation, Project Get$mart is a multifaceted, interactive learning community using a variety of forums to enhance financial literacy. The SCF Financial Literacy Program is a collegewide initiative to address strategies related to achieving greater financial literacy among students and families in the community.

Gallery hours: Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The gallery will be closed for Thanksgiving from Wednesday, Nov. 21 – Sunday, Nov. 25. For more information, call Joe Loccisano, gallery manager, at 941-752-5225.
