We are already in the second half of the spring semester! This is the time when our art majors showcase their capstone and thesis projects as a part of the annual exhibitions held at William Harris, Bevier Galleries located on campus and Gallery r located in downtown Rochester.
On April’s First Friday, tonight, Gallery r is opening a group exhibition “WAIT A MINUTE” displaying the thesis projects of nine Fine Arts Studio seniors from the School of Art: Nicole Adsit, Sydney Debruyn, Kali Doubledee, Maddy Jason, Daniel Krull, Holly Lavoy, Kailey Martin, Monica Potter and Samuel Root. The artwork includes a diverse range of mediums such as painting, sculpture, print, photography, video, animation and installation.
The Fine Arts Studio course, led this year by Assistant Professor Eileen Bushnell, encourages the expression of aesthetics and material explorations of autobiographical, cultural, narrative, abstract and environmental themes. The idea is to cultivate the roots of art and prepare the students for the future. This exhibition celebrates this transformation of students to young artists.
The opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Gallery r located at 100 College Avenue in downtown Rochester.
