Don't Drink The Milk By Co. H & Friends Closing Reception says
Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents the 2016 student summer exhibition "Don’t Drink the Milk," a mixed-media show from Co. H & Friends, now through July 21 in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on campus.

A closing reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 21.

Curated by members of the Watkins collective Co. H, "Don’t Drink the Milk" explores forms of communication and language. This body of work uses the structure of the gallery to demonstrate ways in which art works can simulate language. A prescribed format for a gallery is similar to the construction of a good fiction novel, or an informational document. These pre-existing frameworks in forms of communication are not employed as rigid guidelines, but templates for a new understanding each time. As fallible as language is, "Don’t Drink the Milk" speaks differently to every viewer, as personal experience and historical reference offer numerous routes for interpretation.

"Don’t Drink the Milk" is comprised of 16 pieces from current Watkins students and recent graduates from the Art, Fine Art and Photography departments, "Don’t Drink the Milk" showcases work across severall disciplines, including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and printmaking.

The nine featured artists areStevie Bailey (photography), Kevin Dietz (screen print, drawing), Holden Head, ‘16 (hydrographic),Tristan Higginbotham (photography), Corrina Joyner (mixed media), Kay Kennedy (mixed media), Micah Mathewson (mixed media), Carly Piccione (painting), and Rafer White (painting).

Currey Gallery’s summer hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
