Dan Bethune was awarded 2nd Place 3D by juror René de Guzman, Senior Curator at Oakland Museum of California, in the exhibition 2D/3D Works at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California. Dan Bethune was a 2013 Artist in Residence at A.I.R. Studio in Paducah, KY. Mark Bradley-Shoup’s mixed media works were featured in a solo exhibition at Covenant College. Ron Buffington participated in Higher Learning at City University of New York. This curated exhibition feature prominent artists who are also university faculty, and will travel. Ron Buffington’s scanographs were included in Fiction (With Only Daylight Between Us) at No Future Projects in Dayton, OH. This group exhibition features work executed using photographic technology in inventive or unconventional ways. Ron Buffington was featured in Right and Other Angles on the curated art blog SoftSpot. As a partner with Widgets and Stone design studio, Matt Greenwell worked with a range of clients in 2013, including Mannington Commercial and Graham Vannoy Construction. His work for Mannington encompassed design, planning and fabrication of conference displays for the 2013 NEOCON design exposition and conference for commercial interiors. The striking design was subsequently recreated for Mannington’s headquarters. Matt Greenwell produced letterpress materials for numerous clients including architect Daniel Ryan, the Benwood Foundation, Tomorrow Today, Enzo’s Market and Southtree. Matt Greenwell presented the paper “Design Inquiry: Expanding the Field” at the 2013 Southeast College Art Conference in Greensboro, NC. In summer 2013 Phillip Lewis completed a two-month residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, which is regarded as one of the nation’s premier artist’s colonies. Kendall College of Art and Design commissioned a major work by Phillip Lewis for the renowned international contemporary art competition ArtPrize. Through the Skies for You secured the $20,000 Top Prize for 3D/Installation/Time-Based Artwork. In 2013 Phillip Lewis opened major exhibitions of new work at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles and Zeitgeist in Nashville.
The Shaft, a collaborative project of Lauren Ruth and Maiza Hixson, was invited to perform at the Brooklyn Museum as part of the Institute for Psychogeographic Adventure’s projet for the Brooklyn BEAT festival. Aggie Toppins added The Chattanooga Public Library, The Glass House Collective, C&R Press, and Carbon Objectives to her client list. Toppins designs brand, print and interactive projects for small businesses and nonprofit organizations dedicated to social and cultural betterment. Octagon Press, a self-publishing initiative of Aggie Toppins, received international recognition in 2013. Retailers in Chicago (Quimby’s, Paperish Mess), Baltimore (Atomic Books) and New York City (Printed Matter) carry Octagon publications. Prominent design blogs FPO and Book Design Blog featured Octagon Press. And Toppins exhibited publications at Mediatheque Marguerite Duras in Paris in an exhibition curated by the French collective Papier Gaché. “Status Update,” a design project for which Aggie Toppins served as design researcher, received a competitive Core 77 Communications Design Award, and was published in the 2013 Print Regional Design Annual. Aggie Toppins presented the paper “Experimental Typography and the Zine” to an international audience at TypeCon in Portland, OR. Aggie Toppins presented the paper “Materials as Process: Towards a Generative Theory of Graphic Design Experimentation” at the Southeast College Art Conference in Greensboro, NC. Aggie Toppins participated in the 2013 AIGA Design Educator’s Conference “Blunt” in Norfolk, VA. She was asked to write a review of the conference for the UK-based Eye magazine titled “Critical Mass,” which advocated for more critical dialogue in the profession of graphic design. Dr. Gavin Townsend was appointed a lead author for the Society of Architectural Historians’ Archipedia Project. He and his team will write entries for each of the 100 most notable structures in the state of Tennessee. Christina Vogel was selected for national juried exhibitions at the Masur Museum of Art by Kelly Shindler, Associate Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis, and at Valdosta State University by Carolyn Henne, Art Department Chair at Florida State University.
