Hofstra’s student-run FORM Gallery, Calkins Hall, South Campus, presents two exhibitions this week: Murder by Princy Prasad and Supernxva by Edwin Casanova Cabrera. Both are on display through Saturday, March 21. The FORM Gallery is housed in the Department of Fine Arts, Design, Art History.
Prasad, a senior from Albertson, NY, says her show Murder was a chance for her to fuse together her talent for storytelling. “Merging my love for writing and art,” she says, “I give you my bloody tale of love, hate, lust, suffering, and of course, murder.”
Prasad is an English major who has a minor in fine arts, with a concentration in photography. After graduation, she plans to relocate to California and dreams of someday working for Buzzfeed, the internet news media company.
Supernxva is a collection of photographs by Cabrera. The title is derived from the scientific term ‘supernova’, referring to a stellar explosion with enough energy to outshine an entire galaxy. Cabrera says he named the show because, “It is my time to explode with creativity by displaying the work that I’ve made over the past year.”
Cabrera believes art to be one of the best ways for people to express themselves. He hopes his artistic vision will inspire his audience “to see that anything can be done as long as you put your mind to it”.
The FORM Gallery is located on the first floor of Calkins Hall, South Campus. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information call the Department of Fine Arts, Design, Art History at 516-463-5474.
