This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the 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 Jordan Bergman, Amy Harvey, Thi Hoang, Cameron Jarvis, Kory Kolis, Maren Legeros, Malika Makhkamova, Isaac Tapp, Blake Van Oosbree, Amy Vang, Rebecca Vick, Beatrice Winter, and Xiong Yang.

Their works were created using a variety of different media including oil, acrylic, watercolor, and gouache painting; charcoal, pen, pencil, pastel, and oil crayon drawing; video and still photography; bronze; ceramic; and 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 installation was with the assistance of the student artists, and a number of the works on view are being offered for sale.
