Week Ahead in Hatter Country, April 26-May 3

April 26, 2013

Troy Norton sandingThe Senior Art Exhibition by graduating senior Troy Norton, from Oviedo, Fla., pictured (left) sanding the tree branches of his art project, will be held Friday, April 26, from 6-9 p.m. in Conrad Warehouse, 113 W. Georgia Ave., in downtown DeLand. The exhibit is open to the public, free of charge.

Because the “Tree of Life,” Norton’s senior project, depicts the life cycle of a real tree, he needed a space larger than a typical exhibition space on campus. He scouted for a workable space that would encompass his finished project, and he found the perfect place in the warehouse space in Artisan’s Alley, across the street from Café DaVinci’s.

Norton has arranged for live musical entertainment, catered foods, all donated from many established restaurants in the area, as well as an array of beverages.

“Troy Norton is the only art major to win two Best of Shows back-to-back,” said Sculptor Professor Dan Gunderson, Norton’s faculty advisor. “He is the most decorated art student we’ve ever had at Stetson. He has worked well over 2,000 hours on this one project, alone.”

Extended viewing of the exhibition will continue through Friday, May 3, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., by appointment. For more information, call (407) 929-6074.

The Senior Thesis Exhibition of Studio Art at Hand Art Center will continue through Friday, April 26. “Oscar Bluemner’s Germany: Juxtaposing Jerichow” will run through Monday, April 29.
