Hartwick to Host Annual Senior Art Show Closing Reception

Hartwick College will soon host its annual Senior Art Exhibition Reception – a culmination of students’ art and art history research and art projects. The event will take place in the Foreman Gallery at the Anderson Center for the Arts on the College campus on Friday, May 19 at 11:15 a.m., and is free and open to the public.

The 2017 Senior Art Show includes functional, interpretive, political, and interactive themes through media in ceramics, digital, painting, and photography. This annual reception celebrates the accomplishments specific to Hartwick College graduating art and art history seniors. During the event, President Margaret L. Drugovich will deliver remarks.

Eleven graduating studio art seniors are participating in the exhibition: Brandi Riggons, Sylvia Rojas, Mariana Richards Benefatti, Sergio Cisneros, Maddy Kilgore, Daphne Allen, Ryan Carroll, Sara Duane, Alex Renzi, Nikky-Ann Duncan, and Tristan Hewitt.

The art show also includes senior thesis projects by art history majors. These projects, presented earlier in the semester and now on display in the gallery, include extensive research by Laura Cernik, Arantza Orengo Green, and Rebecca Smith.

“The Hartwick Art and Art History graduating seniors have demonstrated an evolution of knowledge in their respective fields of study,” said Foreman Gallery Exhibit Coordinator Nancy Golden. “The expression of works in this exhibition of art and research show artistic skill, intellectual thought, and a voice that is unique to each student.”
