Date of Event: April 3, 2004
Posted: March 30, 2004
The Denison University Art Gallery will close its 2003/04 season with a traditional exhibit featuring the work of graduating seniors. An even dozen studio art majors will show their works. The opening reception for the exhibit is set for 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday (April 3) in the Burke Hall Gallery (240 West Broadway). Earlier that day -- from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. also in the Gallery -- the art department will hold its annual symposium honoring the graduating seniors in both the studio art major and the art history major.
"With the increased interest in technology's relationship to art and the heightened presence of multiculturalism," says Lee Hanford, acting director of the Gallery, "many of these students have attempted to explore current happenings in the art world." One student's work is inspired by Asian culture; another's work is created by etching over digital images, proving that technology and art can go hand in hand. Works in the show include woodblock prints, manipulated photography painting, sculpture, and comics. "Student art work generally reflects current trends in contemporary art and this exhibit is no exception," says Alison Hughes, an art history major and gallery assistant.
The students exhibiting are: Edward Angelilli, Dallas, Texas; Lyndsay Bennion, Perrysburg; Caroline Bonin, Rochester, N.Y.; Cedric Dancie, Cleveland; Alison Johnson, New Albany; Heather Jones, Nashport; Harper Leich, Indianapolis, Ind.; Katherine Lewis, Latrobe, Pa.; Rebecca Mazur, Newark; Elizabeth Prophet, Newark; Ross Studlar, Morgantown, W.Va.; and Adrienne Wells, Reynoldsburg.
Art history majors who are also being honored at the symposium include: Elizabeth Averbeck, Fort Wright, Ky.; Clarissa Colletti, Springfield, Ill.; Christin Faison, Harleysville, Pa.; Morgan Harrison, Dallas, Texas; Alilson Hughes, Wauwatosa, Wis.; Abigail Myette, Groton, Mass.; Kristen Schroeder, Smithfield, R.I.; Alexis Strathmann, St. Louis, Mo.; and Eric Zeckman, Spring Grove, Pa.
