!Look At That, Art Attack! Senior Art Majors Exhibition 2013 will be on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art, Gustavus Adolphus College, from Honors Day, May 4, through Commencement, June 2, 2013. An opening reception will be held as part of Honors Day, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. May 4. This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the six 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 Miranda Bickett, Margit Bren, Karl Brudvig, Leif Erik Estenson, Olivia Thao Nguyen, and See Thor.
Their works were created using a variety of different media such as painting, digital design, sculpture, ceramic, or 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 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 gustavus.edu/finearts/Hillstrom.
