Berkeley College Celebrates the Art of Jami Kunkle

at the Berkeley Midtown Campus Gallery

 

Berkeley College is exhibiting “Abandoned Interiors,” the work of artist Jami Kunkle.  Her paintings will be on display at the Berkeley College Midtown Campus Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street, from July 6 through 31.  The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday. An artist’s reception for Ms. Kunkle will be held on Tuesday, July 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

 

A native of Pittsburgh, PA, and currently living in Wake Forest, NC, Ms. Kunkle is a recent graduate of East Carolina University, Greenville, NC.  She holds a BFA degree in Art, with a concentration in painting and drawing.  Earlier this year, she exhibited her work in a solo show at East Carolina University’s Grey Gallery.  Ms. Kunkle earned first place in the “On the Wall: Emerging Eastern North Carolina” exhibition and honorable mention in the “Schwa 2008” exhibition at Emerge Gallery and Arts Center, Greenville, NC.

 

Her current series of oil paintings on canvas portray the interior of abandoned structures. 

“I am searching for a lost existence concealed within the walls of the many abandoned buildings that I explore,” says Ms. Kunkle.  “Each structure with its own character has an untold story, eager to be revealed through my eyes.  The mysterious feeling of a past presence, still lingering among the smell of musk, decay and dampness within the interiors, curiously draws me in.”
