Senior Art Exhibition 2006

April 06, 2006

Director’s Statement

This spring, 18 senior art students will graduate from Lewis & Clark College with a bachelor of arts degree. Their work represents the disciplines of ceramics, drawing, graphic arts, painting, photography, and sculpture. The Senior Art Exhibition 2006 is the culmination of their work created during their senior year, reflecting many months of experimentation, discovery, and critique. For each student, the senior art project is an intense engagement of the creative process, a modus operandi that I hope each graduating senior will continue to cultivate and hone throughout his or her lifetime.

The class of 2006 is quite a bit smaller than usual, but there is no lack of vibrance, originality, and dedication to craft in this year’s exhibition. I have been delighted and impressed by the wide range of subject matter and conceptual processes. It is my ardent hope that these students, as well as past Art Department alumni, continue to engage in the arts community—as art makers and audience—for years to come.

There is considerable raw talent and hard work on display in the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art this spring. I especially want to commend Heather Watkins, for her work with these students for the past year in their Senior Seminar. I wish to thank each student for his or her commitment to providing creative output at the highest possible caliber. I also thank Barbara Bartholomew, Debra Beers, Robert Miller, Mike Rathbun and Ted Vogel for their work with these emerging artists. I extend my heartiest congratulations to the students and the Art Department, and I wish each student continuing success in the coming years.
