Ms. Zayatz Reveals a Selective Collection of Artwork for Senior Exhibition
Lakewood, N.J., April 21, 2017—Georgian Court University senior Anne Zayatz of Brielle, New Jersey, welcomes all art and nature lovers to view her senior art exhibition at GCU’s M. Christina Geis Art Gallery from Tuesday, May 2, through Wednesday, May 31. There will be an artist’s reception on Wednesday, May 3, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the gallery.
Her collection features beautiful, and somewhat jarring, depictions of the natural world.
”My artistic practice is influenced by contemporary and historic art. It is an ongoing learning and experimental process related to my interests in nature, natural materials, and mixed media,” says Ms. Zayatz. “I feel I bring a unique perspective to my work that others can enjoy and interpret.”
Ms. Zayatz, who will receive a B.F.A. in Art and Visual Studies in May, is a Dean’s Scholar and the recipient of the Sister M. Christina Geis Art Award. She plans to continue her education and contributions to the artistic community.
Ms. Zayatz has also made a distinct impression on those surrounding her at the university. Leo Morrissey, chair of the Department of Art, notes that “this exhibition brings together an excellent group of work by a young artist with a tremendously promising future in the contemporary art world.”
The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For more information, call Kathleen Settles at 732.987.2388 or e-mail email@example.com.
