Five senior art and design majors will display some of their best work from the past four years in the annual senior art show Friday.
Bethany Koeller, Kimberlee Lowry, Dina Pavlin, Tammy Trylko and Jessica Weersing are the producers and featured artists of this year’s show, titled Élan.
The title, which doubles as the theme, is a style reflecting energy and vivacity, a style the art itself mirrors.
The show will be open in the Shore Art Gallery from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Students can come and go, but the Weersing said the students’ professors will introduce the artists beginning at 6:30 p.m.
A wide variety of pieces will be shown, from interior design projects to 2D paintings.
Jack Maxwell, chair of the Department of Art and Design, oversees the show every year. Though art majors are required to collect their work and organize an exhibit to graduate, this year’s students are excited to exceed the minimum conditions. They have spent weeks planning and redecorating the gallery.
This show will give students a glimpse of what students in the department are accomplishing and a chance to admire work created by their peers.
Pavlin, as well as the other artists, is excited to share her work with the university.
“Come celebrate and see our work in a fun environment to appreciate the art of graduating seniors,” Pavlin said. “Free food, a fun time and awesome, unique art.”
