Announcement: Senior Show 2011: Insert Title Here __________

Hillstrom Museum of Art

Senior Show 2011: Insert Title Here _____, is on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art, from May 7, through Commencement, May 29, with an opening reception on the annual Honors Day of Gustavus Adolphus College, Saturday, May 7, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the nine 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 Anna Ahlbrecht (from Gibbon), Elise Biewen (from Edina), Michelle Dietz (from Lamberton), James Ebeling (from Owatonna), Kacie Johnson (from Mounds View), Kelly Mathewson (from Maple Grove), Ahmed Mohamed (from Minneapolis), Kaitlyn Peterson (from Plymouth), and Nicole Tetrault (from Forest Lake).

Their works were created using a variety of different media such as painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, ceramic, and mixed media.  Each artist is represented by artwork and by a personal statement reflecting her or his artistic goals and aesthetic philosophy.  Serving as jurors for the exhibition, faculty from the Department of Art and Art History selected 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 Hillstrom Museum of Art is located in the lower level of the College's Jackson Campus Center.  Free parking for visitors is available in nearby lots.  Regular Museum hours are weekdays 9:00 to 4:00 and weekends 1:00 to 5:00.  The exhibition and its reception are free and open to the public, and all are welcome.
