In March, Matt Rich's students held an exhibition of paintings from their ART 304 class in the White Box Gallery. These art pieces were made with "non-traditional" materials purchased with a Teaching Innovation Grant from the Teaching & Learning Center at CSUB.
Participating Artists were Renata Enikeeva, Andrew Frausto, R. Mayte Mendez, Claudia Ramirez, Janelle Sweet, and Ikea Wilson.
From Professor Rich:
"The discipline of painting is defined as much by how it is made and with what as it is by what it depicts. These non-traditional painting materials present options outside of the essentials of our painting classroom purchases (supported by student-paid course fees) and allow students to rethink the expectations and norms of painting as they update their material and visual languages to reflect and address our contemporary world."
