‘Art and Politics’ exhibit at Lufrano Gallery reflects political turmoil

Carly Kramer

The UNF Department of Art and Design presented its newest work in Art and Politics, an exhibit at the Lufrano Intercultural Gallery.

Professor Sheila Goloborotko decided to bring this theme to her Relief Printmaking class so students could produce work reflecting political turmoil. Throughout the semester, her art students made an effort to create work related to social justice and environmental issues.

Printmaking is a collaborative art form and students had to work together to create a final product that would reflect their visions.

Ridge Tablada is a painting, drawing, and printmaking student. His piece entitled “Human Nature’s Path” sheds light on ideas of human hypocrisy.

Jim Draper, UNF’s galleries coordinator, worked with Sheila and her class to create the exhibition. Draper also curates the UNF Gallery of Art and the UNF Gallery at MOCA Jacksonville, located downtown. He believes that artists from UNF will use what they’ve learned here to become a strong part of the community.

Sheila’s students learned the importance of speaking about issues in politics, and that knowledge shines through in their work.

Art and Politics will be on display until December 8th at the Lufrano Intercultural Gallery on the second floor of the Student Union East Building.
