Now Showing! Dunbar Hall Art Gallery

Grambling State University’s Dunbar Gallery will host an exhibition by senior art major Brandi Cockerham entitled Struggle Makes Us Strong. The exhibition runs from November 15-December 17, 2010

Cockerham’s work explores some of her experiences as a foster child. Cockerham says, “As a child enters a new environment there are feelings of insecurity as he or she tries to fit in. When a child leaves a family he or she has to deal with the sense of loss, both of people and of security in the environment.” She recognizes that the challenges she faced as a foster child made her life difficult, but also believes that they made her stronger as a person.

She uses collage of fabric pieces along with paint in an attempt to symbolize the different environments that she lived in as a foster child. Human figures are included as silhouettes in these images to symbolize the struggle with identity. These silhouettes describe a child trying to deal with the changes from one environment to another.

The public is invited to attend a reception for the artist to be held on November 18th, from 4:30 – 6:00 PM in Dunbar Gallery. Gallery hours are 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday – Thursday and 8:00-12:00 Friday (closed for university holidays). The gallery is located on Hutchinson Street in Grambling. Accommodations are available for special needs persons. For more information please call 318-274-2274.
