    “Terms & Conditions” features artists who are connected by the desire to educate and expose people to everyday situations ranging from medical conditions to societal precepts, as well as the way people are trained by society to interpret and act on those stimuli. Through the focus of their work, senior artists and designers will shine a spotlight on a topic that they are passionate about. The various pieces span a wide assortment of materials, including traditional and nontraditional media, two- and three-dimensional works, photography, videography, book design, visual identity design, and website design.

    This Is: on the subject of art, Guest Curated by Julie Abijanac

    March 17 to April 12, 2013 

    As artists, we create objects and images according to the subject(s) we have concerns for, connections to or opinions about. Often the subject matter can range from the soul searching to the light-hearted; subjects can be strangely alien or highly recognizable. These ideas are expressed through analysis, the depth of thinking to the intensity of our practice and, in turn, these influences can impact formal approaches. 

    This cognitive interpretation alongside attentive perception is a vital process to the act of making art, which is expressed and translated in many ways. It dictates the form, which contributes to the overall meaning of the finished piece. 

    The subject matter has an enduring lineage in art history and explores contemporary themes, which then are illustrated and developed. For the viewer, the subject matter provides a balance of broad thinking and critical looking.
