Six senior art students at Westminster College will display select work from their portfolios from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays until May 6 in Patterson Hall’s Foster Art Gallery. The gallery reception will be held March 31 from 4:30 – 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The Senior Art Show features the works of fine art and media art students. In addition to work created during their first three years at Westminster, students also have opportunity to showcase a project created in their senior capstone. The capstone is a senior-level course within the major designed to provide an opportunity for students to work independently with Westminster fine art and media art faculty to assess their cumulative body of work and make appropriate adjustments to prepare a professional art or media art portfolio.
“The greatest strength of this year’s show is the diversity of the type of work and disciplines represented by Westminster seniors,” said Kandice Hartner, adjunct faculty for media art + design.
