Charlie Watts has been pushing the limits of the Emory art scene over her four years at the college. She founded the Emory Arts Club and now serves as president for the STIPE Society of Creative Scholars, which fosters creative scholarship and arts awareness at Emory College. She is invigorating the visual arts culture on campus among students through club meetings and her own art projects. With a grant from the Center for Creativity & Arts, she recently completed a series of paintings on the art of hooking up, which was presented in an interactive exhibition October 2011. She has had solo shows across campus at the STIPE Gallery, the student gallery in the Visual Arts Department, and the main gallery in the Visual Arts Department. Watts has been a painter most of her life but has been greatly immersed in photography since her time at Emory where she has run the darkroom for the past three years. After Emory she hopes to get a MFA in fine art photography. In this particular series of photographs for the Financial Aid Department she examines the use of expressive color to create surreal landscapes. She hopes to transport the viewers into a fantastical world just past the periphery of vision.
