Hartwick’s 2018 Senior Art Show Closes With Reception

May 10, 2018

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 18 at 4:30 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

The 2018 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, rising senior Jessica-Holly Clet will introduce Hartwick College President Margaret L. Drugovich, who will deliver remarks to gathered families and guests.

After the President’s remarks, Art and Art History co-Chairs Stephanie Rozene and Joseph Von Stengel will announce the student whose artwork was critiqued as Best in Show by studio art faculty. Departmental honor cords and the Kappa Pi (International Art Honor Society) honor cords will be presented as well.

Seven graduating studio art seniors are participating in the exhibition: Gabriella Davila, Dante Gallo, Aislin Glenn, Loverte Larkai, Seth Littlefield, Annamarie Mahan, and Rosa Roybal Maun.

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 Maun and Rachel Hand.

“In the words of Henri Matisse, ‘creativity takes courage,’” said Foreman Gallery Exhibit Coordinator Nancy Golden. “The Hartwick College studio art seniors have developed the skills of their craft, the creative ability, and critical thinking to project their imaginative concepts in art, and the courage to create on their own terms.”
