The McDaniel College Department of Art and Art History presents an exhibit, Zoë Charlton: PRIME, Aug. 25 through Sept. 18, on campus in the Esther Prangley Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall. For information and gallery hours, call 410-857-2595.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. An opening reception will be held 7-9 p.m. Aug. 25.

In the tradition of art that has a social purpose, Charlton’s work tackles issues surrounding prejudice, privilege, racism and sexuality. “I explore social and racial interactions with subversive humor and irony to call attention to these concerns,” the artist says. “My interest is to identify present day motivations for behaviors rooted in prejudice.”

Charlton earned her master’s degree in Fine Arts, with a concentration in painting, from the University of Texas at Austin in 1999. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, with a concentration in Studio Art, from Florida State University in 1995. Charlton’s art has been featured in several publications, including the New York Times. To view Charlton’s work, visit http://www.zoecharlton.com/.
