MARIETTA, Ohio — Individuals will get to see how Studio Art and Graphic Design seniors choose to express their “wackiness” while pushing their boundaries and testing their creativity starting on Friday, April 10.
The opening reception of the Senior Art Capstone Exhibition entitled “We’re All Kooky Here,” will be from 6-8 p.m., Friday, April 10, in the Atrium Gallery on the third floor of the Hermann Fine Arts Building. The show will be open until graduation on May 3. The reception is free and open to the public.
Exhibiting senior artists and designers are Meredith Brandenburger (Painesville, Ohio), Brittany Curry (Newark, Ohio), Colin Lancashire (Madison, Wis.), Laura Mauer (Terre Haute, Ind.), Madison Moreno (Clarkson, Mich.), Kat Norton (Akron, Ohio), Nikki Morrone (Mineral Ridge, Ohio), Morgan Otto (Caldwell, Ohio) and Dana VanDervort (Alexandria, Ohio).
This exhibition showcases work that was completed in the academic year of 2014–15 by Studio Art and Graphic Design seniors. The work being showcased ranges from traditional oil paintings and drawings to branding, packaging and interactive illustration.
Capstone provides students an opportunity to take all of the knowledge they have learned over the course of their college careers and apply it to one-year project. These projects are representative of the talent of the seniors and what they have learned during their four years at Marietta College. Not every art or design process follows a specific path, but each student begins by finding out what inspires or interests him or her. The students learn and hone a variety of skills throughout this process that will help prepare them for the real world.
The gallery is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
