Announcement: Opening reception for Annual Senior Studio Art Majors Exhibition at the Hillstrom Museum of Art, May 3, 2014

An opening reception for Emergence: Senior Art Majors Exhibition 2014 will be held Saturday, May 3, 2014, 4 to 6 p.m. in the Hillstrom Museum of Art, as part of the annual Honors Day of Gustavus Adolphus College.

The exhibition will be on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art from Honors Day, May 3, through Commencement, June 1, 2014.  This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the three 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 Briana Bloom, Maegan Carlson, and Elizabeth Spaulding.

Their works were created using a variety of different media including oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting; photography; screen printing; and ceramics.  Each artist is represented by artwork and by a personal statement reflecting her 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 Museum'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's website at
