The Student Art and Architecture Exhibit begins on Friday, April 26th at Houghton House and around the Arts Campus.
The gallery celebrates the work of student artists on campus and includes “Visual invention in color and in black and white, in silkscreens and in photographs, in charcoal and in paint, in sculpture and digital media from students in studio classes,” according to the press release. Architectural studio students will also be showcasing projects that emphasize the design process and include “final models, multi-media studies, and rendered drawings.”
This is an annual exhibition that aims to display the work of students in all studio courses. Pieces were selected for representation by the faculty members of the Art and Architecture department to “represent the artistic vision and passion of the student art community.”
Senior studio art major Niki Russell ’19 told the Herald, “The best thing about the student show is that the goal is to get as much student art into the gallery as possible without it being too much. It’s not an exhibition of a few pieces and mostly white wall. It’s a show of madness, full of many different people and minds, all squeezed together into a beautiful space. Sort of like the school itself.”
There is a reception on Friday, April 26th from 6 – 8 p.m. The gallery will be open until graduation on Sunday, May 19th.
