Visual Arts majors to showcase senior projects

HUNTINGTON , IN — The Huntington College Visual Arts Department is proud to present its upcoming Graduating Visual Arts Majors Exhibition to be on display from December 1-12, 2003 , in the Robert E. Wilson Gallery of the Merillat Centre for the Arts. An artist reception will also be held on Saturday, December 6, 2003 , from 6-8:00 p.m. , in the Robert E. Wilson Gallery . Senior Visual Arts majors Amy Griffin and Brandon Schwartz will each present an exhibition. Their work is the result of a one year Senior Project in chosen mediums that represents their growth over the past four years.

Brandon Schwartz, a senior Art Education major from Brooklyn , Mich. , will present “Water to Wine.” Schwartz chose to work with oil on masonite to create realistic still life paintings with a self-exploration theme. A ceramic dinnerware set was also created using stoneware clay and high fire glazes. The theme of his show is an exploration of self and how art relates to his life. Schwartz will graduate in May of 2004 with a BS in Art Education.

Amy Griffin, a senior Fine Arts major from Huntington , Ind. , will exhibit a series of color field oil paintings ranging in size from three to five feet. The paintings explore the concepts of the painting as the object, perceptions of place and the effect that color has on the individual. Griffin will graduate in December of 2003 with a BA in Fine Arts.

The Robert E. Wilson Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 pm . For more information please contact Gallery Director Rebecca Coffman at (260) 359-4272.
