Second Messages at FSU

Frostburg State University’s Visual Arts Department presents the “Second Message” art exhibition from Friday, Feb. 4, to Sunday, Feb. 27. The opening reception will be held on Friday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. in the Stephanie Ann Roper Art Gallery in the Fine Arts Building on campus. Refreshments will be served.

The exhibition, which showcases the works of area residents Ken Braitman, Mary McCunn, Kurt Bonello and Kate Keely, will feature different forms of artistic expression including paintings and sculptures.
Ken Braitman’s sculptures give new life or perspective to old discarded objects. Kate Keely’s paintings explore issues related to the human condition translated in a symbolic manner. Mary McCunn’s sculptures and jewelry are produced using mixed metals, creating an abstract metamorphosis on small insect-like elements in nature. Kurt Bonello’s sculptures are influenced by or constructed from found objects or natural formations.

The Stephanie Ann Roper Art Gallery is open to the public 1 to 4 p.m., Monday through Wednesday. Frostburg State University 101 Braddock Road Frostburg, MD 21532-2303
