Reconfigure at GCCC

Panama City, FL - The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast Community College is proud to present “Reconfigure” starting March 11, 2011. The art exhibit features painting, drawings, photographs and sculpture exploring the human form by Pavel Amromin, Rory Coyne, Jill Foote-Hutton, Katherine Gallagher, Shawn Gallagher, Magda Gluszek, Morgan Kendall, Kim Luther, and Tammy Marinuzzi. Artists Pavel Amromin, Tammy Marinuzzi and Magda Gluszek will also be giving a demonstration/lecture on their individual sculpting techniques in clay on March 11 from The demonstration will be held at GCCC in the Amelia Tapper Center, room 128.  It is free and open to the public.

The artists selected for “Reconfigure” demonstrate a broad range of interpretations of the human form in both two and three dimensions. Approaches to this subject matter include a range from realistic, stylized, abstract to anthropomorphized forms. Pavel Amromin, Tammy Marinuzzi and Magda Gluszek are all instructors in the Division of Visual and Performing Arts at Gulf Coast Community College. They each hold Masters of Fine Arts degrees in Ceramics from the University of Florida. Pavel Amromin creates narrative porcelain vignettes examining issues of war and the boy soldier. He uses a combination of press-mold and sculpting methods. Tammy Marinuzzi makes functional forms illustrating her observations of the various people and personalities that she encounters in daily life. She constructs her forms with soft slabs and decorates with a combination of colorful slips and glazes. Magda Gluszek sculpts female figures investigating ideas about identity and appearance through performative poses. She sculpts her forms as a solid mass and hollows them before firing and decorating with ceramic and mixed media surfaces. Amromin, Marinuzzi and Gluszek will demonstrate their individual techniques and talk about what motivates and inspires them to create.

The art exhibit will open the evening of March 11, with a reception from “Reconfigure” will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (Room 112) until April 15, 2011. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from
