Art seniors exhibit diverse disciplines in spring show

April 03, 2008

(Portland, Ore.)—Twenty senior art students will display works celebrating their educational journey through the field of art in the Senior Art Exhibition 2008, which opens April 4 at the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art.

Reflecting the diverse disciplines taught in the Department of Art, the exhibition will include works in a variety of mediums—ceramics, drawing, graphic arts, painting, photography, and sculpture. Similarly diverse, students credit myriad sources of inspiration for their art in this exhibition, which demonstrates many months of experimentation, discovery, and critique.

“I have been delighted and impressed by the wide range of subject matter and conceptual processes,” said Linda Tesner, director of the Hoffman Gallery. “For each student, the senior art project is an intense engagement of the creative process, an approach that I hope each graduating senior will continue to cultivate and hone throughout his or her lifetime.”

The exhibition features work by Peter Arthur, Whitney Bard, Ursula S. Berg, Annie Brulé, Rafael Demetrio Cuevas, Joey Edwards, Hunter Franks, Maria Grina, Katie Gardner, Caitlin Bowen Hamilton, Ariel Kaplan, Georgia Z. Lewis, Mia Marjie Maluchi, Rachel Olson, Krista Sarin, Laine Shipley, Hilary Snider, Laura E. Snider, Izzy Weaver, Nicholas S. Wells.

A reception will mark the Senior Art Exhibition’s opening on Friday, April 4 from 5 to 7 p.m.; the exhibit will run through Sunday, May 11. The Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art is located on the Lewis & Clark College campus at 0615 SW Palatine Hill Road in Portland. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show is free and open to the public; parking is free on weekends. For more information, please visit the gallery’s website.
