Despite an occasional departure from tradition, the majority of the works in the gallery are grounded in an academic approach to art study and training. Represented in the exhibition are traditional two-dimensional painting media (oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, watercolor on paper) as well as drawing media on paper (graphite, charcoal, pastel and conte). Printmaking techniques include lithography, etching and silk-screen printing (serigraphy).
The exhibition includes wonderful examples of familiar photographic processes (black and white silver prints and color printing). The computer design classes produced video animation, as well as photo-based laser printed graphic designs.
Additionally, the show includes a cross section of traditional three dimensional techniques taught in the department jewelry construction; wax model for bronze cast sculpture; wire sculptural form; plaster cast sculpture; wheel thrown and slab-constructed clay vessels and objects and mixed media constructions.
The student exhibition may be characterized by an energy and freshness unique to emerging artists.
