Summer 2018 Event Season
Art and Design
In residence: Summer 2018
On view in Mariani Gallery: August 23 – October 6, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 23, 4-9pm
Jodi Stuart creates a techno-toxic playground in her latest site-specific installation, Super Synthetic at Mariani Gallery. The exhibition will feature ambitious, large-scale 3D printed works such as a faux climbing wall comprised of Stuart's "Knot" works and a hanging swing made from plastic playground/saftey hardware colored in "saftey yellow". A riot of color and texture that attracts and repels, Super Synthetic invites playful associations with intensely tactile materials, causing the viewer to contantly resist squeezing, picking up, and touching the work.
Stuart's work explores the look of digital technologies that saturate our everyday lives, in relation to tactle and sensory experiences. The artist's practiceis deeply interested in the desire to re-insert the body into virtual experience - and/or - to materialize physcial objects from the virtual. Stuart's sculptural forms are made using the plastic filaments intended for 3D digital printing. By using a '3D pen', Stuart has replaced the computer with the human hand in a kind of nostologic, futile but beautiful, gesture. Throught this combination of materials and forms, Stuart creates an uneasy optical space where craft traditions such as weaving, knitting, and basketmaking are juxtaposted with abstracted virtual space, that hints at neutal networks, cloud computing, information, and bio-systems.
In residence: August 9-23, 2018
Mural permanently on view
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 23, 4-9pm
Andrew Bablo (Beverly, MA) and Pat Milbery (Denver, CO) will return to UNC for phase two of the Crabbe Hall mural project! The artists' two-week residency in Crabbe Hall will complete the second half of the lobby's transformation. Last year, Bablo and Milbery created the site-specific mural, A New Light outside of the Oak Room Gallery. The concept for the mural was to not only to create an immersive, inspiring portal for students in the School of Art & Design, but to signal key components of 2D and Foundations, courses taught in that wing of the building. This year, the duo is tackling the adjacent half of the hall where 3D Design and Digital Fabrications are housed. The artists will incorporate elements of design that speak to the nature of 3D Printing and Design.
Pat Milbery is, above all, a creative collaborator, as well known for the large-scale murals he's created alongside some of the most prominent street and graffiti artists in the world as he is for the playful photo shoots and video parts he's participated in as a pro snowboarder. His vivid street art collaborations adorn the walls of dozens of boutiques, breweries, residences, bars, and other businesses in Denver, around the Rocky Mountains, across the country and around the globe, and he's helped curate and create major art installation projects for brands including the Ford Motor Company, X Games, Budweiser, Zumiez, Loveland Ski Area, Wahoo Fish Tacos, and Pabst Blue Ribbon. H
From design to production, Andrew Bablo builds, crafts and experiments through the use of various media. Seeing no boundaries or limitations, he loves to work interactively, large-scale and in the eye of the public. Bablo started his career in branded and licensed apparel design, working with major league sports teams across the country. He spent years creating garments for several retail brands including Reebok and ’47. Later, Bablo collaborated with the industry’s top artists, athletes and brands as the former Editor-in-Chief of Steez Magazine. Over the course of nine years and 35 issues, Bablo grew the magazine from a black and white photocopier to a major publication, distributing throughout thousands of major newsstands such as Barnes & Noble in the U.S. and Canada. In 2015, Bablo founded Steez Design, bringing his artistic background to the commercial design world. Bablo graduated from Montserrat College of Art in 2007 with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. Currently residing north of Boston, he works as an artist, designer and entrepreneur.

This delightful comedy gives new meaning to the term "dinner theater," as audiences enjoy a comical, heartfelt, one-woman show while a few lucky patrons are served a three-course Italian spread made right in front of them by the star, Kerri Jill Garbis, who simultaneously assumes the persona of Giulia Melucci, on whose memoir I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti is based.
