archive: GCSC Presents "Fluidity of Place" Art Exhibit


The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College is excited to present “Fluidity of Place,” an exhibit by Mandy Yourick.

Fluidity of PlaceYourick is a sixth generation native of the Florida panhandle and her work is heavily influenced by the shoreline. She employs a variety of media including drawings, photography and ceramics as she responds to the ever-changing nature. She sees it as a metaphor for our daily experience and describes her work as a collection of maps. “Maps convey information, traditionally geographic and navigational information, yet the basic purpose is to represent an area,” said Yourick. “In these pieces, I am representing my personal narrative alongside others who live here to reflect the physical landscape and the layers of experiences.”

Yourick was a featured artist at the 2012 Korea Burn Festival in Gijipo Beach, South Korea and served as the artist-in-residence at The Bubbler in Madison, WI. She is currently an Adjunct Professor of Art at GCSC.
