WFU stArt Gallery offers online exhibition

Wake Forest’s student-run art gallery, stArt gallery, has launched “stArtStream,” an online presentation of selected works of video art from the John P. Anderson Student Art Collection.

These works are thematically centered around ideas of identity and how we interpret the world in which we live. Through this exhibition, stArt gallery is offering the opportunity to engage with student artwork outside the physical gallery space.

“This year, we have been reminded that the arts have a role in keeping us grounded,” said stArt gallery manager Kayla Amador (’19). “Whether you’ve listened in on a neighborhood concert, picked up a new craft in your spare time, or just spent a lot of time catching up on movies – we’re all consuming art in some way or another.”

“In thinking about how to present a gallery exhibition during this current climate, viewing the work of similar institutions, and feeling elated at the chance to widen the reach of the arts outside the physical gallery space – an online exhibition just made sense,” Amador said. “It is my hope that we can continue to find solace in the arts as we navigate our new realities and do our best to stay well.”

Established in 1993, the John P. Anderson Collection of Student Art purchases student works of art as a way to recognize the accomplishments of Studio Art majors and students achieving Honors in Studio Art at Wake Forest.

The stArt gallery’s in-person programming has temporarily moved to Hanes Gallery’s mezzanine and will resume there with an exhibition in October. Due to pandemic-related restrictions, access to Hanes Gallery is currently limited to Wake Forest University students, faculty and staff.

Wake Forest Fellows for 2016-17

Twelve seniors will remain in the Wake Forest campus community following graduation in May as Wake Forest Fellows.  They will work in offices across campus, including the President’s Office, the Pro Humanitate Institute, the Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Office of Personal and Career Development.

Since 2008, the Wake Forest Fellows program has provided exceptional Wake Forest college graduates with the opportunity to work in higher education administration for a year. Each fellow will serve as a full-time Wake Forest employee, starting this summer.  In addition to working with top administrators in a particular department, the fellows will participate in leadership activities and interact with faculty, staff and students to learn about the inner workings of higher education.

“We’re welcoming a class of Fellows that has excelled across the campus in academics, in service, and in leadership,” said Marybeth Wallace, special assistant to President Nathan O. Hatch.  “We can’t wait to feel all of that youthful energy in our offices.”
This group also represents the first time that fellowships have been arranged for Reynolda House Museum of American Art, the Pro Humanitate Institute and Wake Downtown: Biomedical Sciences and Engineering.

The Wake Forest Fellows for 2016-17 are:

  • Olivia Clark: Reynolda House (Ellicott City, Md.), History/minor, Italian
  • Kent Garrett: Information Systems (Noblesville, Ind.), Sociology/minors, Journalism and Entrepreneurship
  • Brian Hart: Dean of the College (Oxford, N.C), Politics and International Affairs
  • Millicent Hennessey: President’s Office (New York, N.Y.), Chinese Language and Culture

  • Kylie Kinder: START Gallery (Oak Park, Calif.), Art History and Psychology
  • Alexa King: Campus Life (Dallas, Texas), Psychology/minor, Health and Human Services

  • Terry (T.J.) Smith: Provost’s Office (Greensboro, N.C.), Politics and International Studies
  • Camry Wilborn: Pro Humanitate Institute (Winston-Salem, N.C.), Politics and International Studies and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies/minor, Communication

“My selection as a fellow means that I have been given a tremendous opportunity to continue to learn and grow while simultaneously giving back to the institution I have to come to love,” said T.J. Smith.  “I have the chance to be mentored by a cadre of esteemed leaders in what will be the developmental opportunity of a lifetime.”

As a fellow, Smith said, he expects “to gain a new insight and perspective into how the strategic direction and inner mechanics of the University come together to move our community forward.”

Alumni of the Wake Forest Fellows program have pursued careers in law, medicine, public policy and more. Several have since received prestigious academic awards such as Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships.
