Sixty-two graduating senior art and digital arts students will exhibit their work in the 2014 Spring Storm: Department of Art Second Annual Senior Show on May 30 from 5–8 p.m. at the School of Architecture and Allied Arts in Lawrence Hall. A reception for the artists will also take place from 5–8 p.m. during the exhibition, which is free and open to the public.

Spring Storm will showcase work from all media areas within the Department of Art, including ceramics, digital arts, fibers, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

The show will provide not only a glimpse of advanced student work but also insights into their creative processes, material choices and theoretical approaches.

A print-on-demand catalogue of work archiving the work of this year’s graduating class will also be available.

Following the event May 30, a juried selection of student works will be shown June 916 in the Best of 2014 Spring Storm exhibition in the LaVerne Krause Gallery in Lawrence Hall. This exhibition will feature works utilizing a diverse range of materials and processes that explore the innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary creative practice. The opening reception will take place June 9 from 57 p.m. in the gallery.

The Department of Art offers more than 300 classes every year in eight media areas. Many courses in the department are open to students who are not art majors, although prerequisites may apply. Summer classes and workshops are available on the Summer in A&AA website.
