Emerging Art Showcases Art Majors' Work

From Jackie Hooper, Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery:

Works by 24 graduating art majors will be showcased in Emerging Art, the Annual Keene State College Art Students’ Exhibition, presented by the KSC Art Department from Saturday, April 14, through Saturday, May 5, at the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery.

Friends of the Thorne will host an opening reception for Emerging Art on Friday, April 13, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the gallery.

The Art Department will also sponsor a Graphic Design Senior Portfolio review from 3 to 7 p.m. the same day at the Young Student Center. Fifty graphic design seniors will open their portfolios and display their best design work. Refreshments will be available.

In Emerging Art, Bachelor of Fine Arts candidates, graduating seniors, and a selection of students taking art classes will exhibit their paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and ceramic works. The pieces were selected by Art Department faculty from work students completed in all levels of art classes throughout the academic year.

The B.F.A. program is highly selective and requires seniors to exhibit a body of their work. These students have been preparing their artwork for exhibit during a Senior Seminar course taught by Lynn Richardson, Assistant Professor of Art.

Gallery visitors are invited to vote for their favorite artwork for the People’s Choice Commendation, which carries a $100 cash prize and is sponsored by the Friends of the Thorne. The winner will be announced Monday, April 30.
