Senior Studio Art Majors Exhibition 2016 on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art

May 729

Hillstrom Museum of Art presents annual senior studio art majors exhibition

Epoch: Senior Art Majors Exhibition 2016 will be on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art, Gustavus Adolphus College, from Honors Day, May 7, through Commencement, May 29, 2016.  An opening reception will be held as part of Honors Day, May 7, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. 

This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the graduating senior studio art majors and is a required component of their studies.  It demonstrates the diversity of styles and approaches taken by the student artists, some of whom intend to continue studying or working in art after graduation.  On display are works by Haley Bell, Mia Cannon, Leah Creger, Anna Franke, Rachel Gunderson, Helena Johnson, Emily Leslie, Andrew Paul, Lauren Schiltz, Griffin Spier, and Jessica Williams.

Their works were created in a variety of different media including oil and acrylic painting; charcoal and ink drawing; video and still photography; bronze and plaster sculpture; ceramic works; and mixed media.  Each artist is represented by artwork and by a personal statement reflecting her or his artistic goals and aesthetic philosophy.  Faculty from the College's Department of Art and Art History served as jurors for the exhibition, selecting the strongest works from a group of submissions by each student.  The exhibit was installed with the assistance of the student artists, and a number of the works on view are being offered for sale.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.  The Hillstrom Museum of Art's regular hours are weekdays, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.  For more information, visit the Museum website at gustavus.edu/hillstrom.
