In Sunshine or In Shadow: A Residency & the WNC Students Who Were There

04/15/10- 08/13/10


“In Sunshine or In Shadow” is the title of the piece created by Tasmanian artist Patrick Hall along with 18 students from UNC-Asheville, Western Carolina University, Appalachian State University, Haywood Community College and Blue Ridge Community College during an International Artist Residency that took place in May 2009 at Marshall High Studios in Marshall, NC. It was hosted by the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design. Students applied to participate and were selected by faculty. This exhibit features selected work by students who participated in this residency, as well as documentary photographs showing “In Sunshine or In Shadow” as it was being created. Also on display will be the completed piece (housed outside). The intent is multi-purposed to show a wide range of works by students from WNC universities and community colleges, to show documentation of this residency, and to display the outcome of an inter-institutional collaboration and experience for these students. The work students will be exhibiting will be based on the theme of “In Sunshine or In Shadow” and may reflect on their own personal interpretation of what that means.
