The closing reception will be in conjunction with the reception for artist Barry Whittaker’s exhibition in the Northcutt Steele Gallery. This event will be catered by Sodexo.


Zachary Hinkle is a multimedia artist working in painting, installation, sculpture, and drawing. This is Zach’s final semester here at MSUB, where he is working towards his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.


“Extracts from Interfering Air is a sculptural exhibition that takes advantage of the overabundance of material things that are ever present in our daily lives,” Hinkle stated. “Using objects that are mass produced, cheap, and widely available, I create assemblages that entice the viewer to form new and personal associations with things that would normally go overlooked. I am interested in the pictorial potential of the everyday. The stuff that we choose to surround ourselves with is full of significance in form as well as function and practicality. The results do not reference recognizable forms. They are deconstructed to the point that meaning is shifted and various interpretations become manifested.”


The Student Gallery is located inside the Liberal Arts building on the first floor.
