Mississippi State’s art department again is inviting creative upper-level high school students to participate in its annual INvision summer camp.

Taking place June 13-17, the visual arts experience is designed for students age 16 and older, including incoming freshmen at the university.

Now in its fourth year, the program offers an enriching introductory for both specific academic programs and post-graduate career paths in the studio fields of art and design.

Because camp space is limited, early registration is encouraged. Accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, applications may be obtained by contacting the department office at 662-325-2970 or visiting www.caad.msstate.edu/wpmu/in-vision/.

The $595 admission includes a non-refundable $100 filing fee that must accompany each application. Due by May 30, the remaining amount covers the cost of workshops, instruction, supplies, room and board, equipment fees and a meal card.

Campers will be housed in campus residence halls under the supervision of qualified counselors and resident advisers.

INvision is among MSU academic summer camps with tuition support for seventh-12th grade public school students in Lee, Pontotoc and Union counties provided by the Tupelo-based CREATE Foundation’s Toyota Wellspring Education Fund.

Campers will take part in workshops on photography, graphic design, drawing, ceramics and sculpting, among other media. Artist presentations, gallery exhibitions, movie nights and field trips are among the planned cultural and social activities.

Art-related career opportunities also will be discussed by professional sculptors, graphic designers, illustrators, interior designers, fashion designers and landscape architects. MSU faculty members and currently enrolled majors will make additional presentations.

At week’s end, camper-produced works will be featured at the department’s Visual Arts Center Gallery at 808 University Drive. Exhibit admission is free to all.

For additional information about 2016 INvision, contact Nicole Jackson at 662-325-2970 or njackson@caad.msstate.edu.

Part of the College of Architecture, Art and Design, MSU’s art department is the longtime home of the Magnolia State’s largest undergraduate studio art program. It offers a bachelor of fine arts degree, with concentrations in graphic design, photography and fine art (ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture).

A Mississippi State art faculty member is positioned to officially join the policy making body of an international institution specializing in craft education.

Critz Campbell, an associate professor at the university, recently was elected to an eight-year term as a board trustee at North Carolina’s Penland School of Crafts. A West Point resident and Clay County native, he is a Penland alumnus.

Founded in 1929 and annually enrolling more than 1,400, the school located in the Blue Ridge Mountains northeast of Asheville, North Carolina, is dedicated to “helping people live creative lives.” In addition to training in such artistic media as clay, glass, iron, metals and wood, it features artist residencies and community collaboration programs, among other offerings. For more, see www.penland.org.

An MSU faculty member since 2005, Campbell coordinates the art department’s sculpture emphasis program. He currently teaches introductory and advanced sculpture and earlier led courses in furniture design and metal fabrication, among others.

He attended Penland after graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Parnham College in England. Other studies were completed at the Arco Centro de Communicao in Portugal.

“I am excited to serve the school that nurtured me for 20-plus years and has such an impact on craft education,” Campbell said of the trustee role that begins in November.

“The opportunity to represent MSU at an institution as important to craft education as Penland School of Crafts is a great honor, especially when I am representing the College of Architecture, Art and Design, where our mission includes engaging students in the highest level of craft,” he said.

Trustee duties will help him grow as an educator and leader by “gaining a deeper relationship with the American craft community and greater understanding and ability in the pedagogy of craft,” Campbell said, adding that Penland “has a very active board and I expect my role to evolve as I gain experience in the group.

“What excites me most about the opportunity is the relationships I can build with renowned craft educators and advocates,” he said.

Campbell’s artistic creations have been featured at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and International Contemporary Furniture Fair, both in New York, deCordova Museum in Massachusetts and LIMN Gallery in California, among other prominent national venues.

His professional career also has been honored with awards and grants from the Mississippi Arts Commission and National Endowment for the Arts. For more biographical information, visit www.critzcampbell.com.

Mississippi State junior Daniel J. Mooney of Brookhaven talks about one of his artworks with Student Support Services Coordinator Elizabeth Williams during a “One Night Only” exhibit at the university’s Howell Building.

The show represented a culmination of ACCESS program students’ semester-long artwork created with volunteer guest instructors from the Department of Art and Starkville community. Students completed the work through individual instruction and in Department of Art courses including Rowan Haug’s information on elements of design, 3-D design and acrylic painting. Students drew horses with Assistant Professor Neil Callander’s Drawing II class and made ceramic pieces with the help of Professor Robert Long and his advanced ceramics students.

MSU established the ACCESS program in 2010, becoming the only university in the state to provide post-secondary education opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities. The event also was sponsored by the College of Architecture, Art and Design.

“Flying World” previously was on display as part of the 2015-16 International Watercolor Biennial at Shenzhen Art Museum/Luohu Cultural Center in China’s fourth-largest city.

Additionally, Funderburk’s watercolor/mixed-media painting, “A Dream of Flying,” was among more than 100 works—out of 430 submitted entries—chosen for the Houston, Texas-based Watercolor Art Society’s 2016 International Exhibition held in March.

Mississippi State’s newest artist-in-residence has begun her month-long exploration of the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge.

Elin de Jong, a contemporary textiles and crafts artist from the Netherlands, is documenting colors of the landscape and wildlife and experimenting with plants to come up with natural dyes native to Northeast Mississippi. She also plans to conduct an end-of-the-month workshop on natural fiber dyes for Refuge visitors, as well as interact with art students at MSU.

Located 12 miles south of the Starkville campus, the more than 48,000-acre federal land reserve spanning Oktibbeha, Noxubee and Winston counties was established in 1940. It serves as a feeding and resting area for migratory birds and resident wildlife, including white-tailed deer, alligators and beaver. Wetlands, cypress groves, prairie grasslands and forest also are among the Refuge’s many features.

An art history graduate of the University of Amsterdam, de Jong started a natural dye garden in 2014 to focus on the making of natural dyed fabrics. Each skein of yarn or piece of fabric, she said, is colored with natural dyes using special techniques, some of which date back to the Middle Ages.

“These techniques can take hours or even days in order to make each color unique,” de Jong explained. “The colors are achieved entirely through natural dyes made from plants, including roots, bark, wood, flowers, leaves and insects.”

“In nature’s tranquility, we can find color, excitement and endless possibility,” she added.

For more information about de Jong and her natural fiber dye research, visit her blog at www.elinwanderlust.com.

In addition to MSU’s art department, the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife artist-in-residence program is a collaborative effort of the refuge and its Friends organization, along with the Starkville Area Arts Council.

Previous participants in the artist-in-residence program have included painter and Webster County native William “Bill” Dunlap; printmaker Kathryn Hunter of Decatur, Alabama; Pennsylvania ceramicist Lilly Zuckerman; mural artist and illustrator Michael Roy of Jackson County; New Orleans artist and critic Marian S. McLellan; New York artists Caetlynn Booth and Tyson Washburn; Mississippi Audubon Master Naturalist and artist Robin Whitfield of Grenada; Iowa artist Barbara Fedeler; MSU fine arts/sculpture graduate Shelby Nichols of Aberdeen; and San Francisco artist and curator Jenny Balisle.
