Poetry and collages combine to create “Jaded,” an exhibit coming to Bloomington-based design agency and gallery Blueline, Chelsea Sanders, Blueline founder and executive director, said. The exhibit will run through February.
Sanders, who is also gallery director at Untitled Light studios, said the exhibit will be Blueline graphic designer Holland Colvin’s first solo art exhibit.
“She's our youngest and is just breaking into the art scene here in Bloomington,” Sanders said in an email.
Colivn attended Bloomington High School North and graduated from IU in 2016. She continues to live in Bloomington as an artist after graduation.
Sanders said Colvin's past work and new exhibit impressed her.
“It's a conceptual show featuring original poetry and collages that show a progression of feeling and emotion, inspired by her experiences,” Sanders said.
Holland also self-published an exhibit book for “Jaded” that she will sell along with the pieces at her exhibit, Sanders said.
Holland’s portfolio website has examples of her work in fine arts, from photography to collages and drawings to paintings.
She also has poster, T-shirt, webpage and logo designs filed under her “Design” folder.
“This is my passion, my strength, my profession,” the website states.
Colvin also said in her website biography that she sees herself as versatile in all things creative.
“Design? Yep, pretty much anything design-related really gets me going,” the website reads. “Fine art? Heck yeah, that’s where it all started. Fashion? Um yes, some may say I’m a fashionista. Color enthusiast? Man, you have no idea. Amateur plant-owner? You betcha.”
Sanders said she is excited to see what Colvin will do next.
“We're very proud and excited for her,” Sanders said. “She's definitely a woman and artist to watch within the community.”
