Roger Chamieh There Came A Day That ...


    “Resonant Frequencies,” an exhibition that explores the role of sound in contemporary art will open Tuesday, Jan. 17 in the Center for Art & Theatre at Georgia Southern.
    Sponsored by the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, the exhibit runs through Feb. 26 in the Contemporary Gallery of the center.
    In 1913, the Italian Futurist painter and composer, Luigi Russolo, penned his manifesto, “L’ Arte dei Rumori” (The Art of Noises), which forever changed the role of sound in art. During the past 100 years, artists have continued to pursue new ways to incorporate sound into visual art. Resonant Frequencies explores how actual and implied sound is utilized in sculpture, painting and technology-driven artwork.
    Artists included in the exhibition are Roger Chamieh, a sculptor and installation artist from Tampa, Fla.; Peter Edwards, a sculptor and musician from Troy, N.Y.; and Nathan Ethier, a painter from New York City.
    Also, an artist talk is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 5 p.m., where visitors will have the opportunity to discuss the exhibition with select artists as well as the show’s curator, Marc Mitchell. An artist reception at the Center for Art & Theatre is scheduled immediately following the artist talk.
    The exhibition is free and open to the public.
    The Center for Art & Theatre is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. and by appointment.
