The graduating seniors of the Wright State Art and Art History Program are as diverse as the artwork they create. Each student has a unique interpretation and expression that have developed over the course of his or her studies.
The 2012 Senior Exhibition in the Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries showcases the hard work and creativity of these gifted artists. The exhibition features artwork by more than 40 students and will run from May 20 to June 10.
A special opening reception in the Galleries (Room A132 of the Creative Arts Center) on Sunday, May 20 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. will feature music, entertainment and light refreshments.
This annual event celebrates the talent of graduating art students while giving them the invaluable career experience of presenting a body of work in a public exhibition.
Participation in the show is a graduation requirement for the program. The exhibition highlights the best work of each student in a variety of mediums due to an extensive selection process.
Students in the Art and Art History program are required to take courses in each discipline offered at Wright State including printmaking, photography, painting, drawing and sculpture. Students select a medium in which to concentrate and are required to take five classes within that concentration before graduating.
Within each concentration, students create artworks to be judged for admission to the Senior Exhibition. Students consult with faculty members from their major to help them select up to 10 of their most successful pieces for submission to the full faculty jury. Only those works selected by the jury are displayed in the exhibition.
The 2012 Senior Exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information on the exhibition, please contact Megan Dooley-Smallwood at email@example.com.
