Gulf Coast State College Presents “Fluidity of Place” Art Exhibit opens March 13th and runs through April 7th …….

Panama City, FL – The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College is excited to present “Fluidity of Place,” an exhibit by Mandy Yourick.

Yourick is a sixth generation native of the Florida panhandle and her work is heavily influenced by the shoreline. She employs a variety of media including drawings, photography and ceramics as she responds to the ever-changing nature. She sees it as a metaphor for our daily experience and describes her work as a collection of maps. “Maps convey information, traditionally geographic and navigational information, yet the basic purpose is to represent an area,” said Yourick. “In these pieces, I am representing my personal narrative alongside others who live here to reflect the physical landscape and the layers of experiences.”

Yourick was a featured artist at the 2012 Korea Burn Festival in Gijipo Beach, South Korea and served as the artist-in-residence at The Bubbler in Madison, WI. She is currently an Adjunct Professor of Art at GCSC.

The exhibit will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (Room 112) from March 13 through April 7.
A closing reception will be held on Friday, April 7, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and Friday
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Pavel Amromin at pamromin@gulfcoast.edu or (850) 872.3886.
