The Department of Visual and Performing Arts on Tuesday hosted a Senior Exhibition reception for Sivram Jackson, whose works will be on display through Nov. 12 at Dunbar Gallery.
The title of Jackson’s exhibit is “Classically Blind Vision.”
Jackson, a senior from San Bernardino, California, is pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in visual and performing arts with a concentration in digital art.
Jackson’s exhibition encompasses graphic designs for use on clothing. He begins with sketches, which he scans and digitizes in Adobe Illustrator. He then adds color in Photoshop for a crisp look that he believes will appeal to Generation X.
“The work I do is empowered by the friends that I have had in my life and the artists that I have come to adore,” said Jackson.
“I believe that today’s world should place more value on the unique, rather than following trends.”
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception on Nov. 3 from 4:30-6 p.m. in Dunbar Gallery. The gallery is located on Hutchinson Street at Grambling State University. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to noon on Friday. Accommodations are available for large groups and those with special needs.
