This year’s Senior Show features the work of 17 artists who have spent the past two terms in Senior Studio – a class where no projects are assigned, which creates an environment for students that closely resembles a professional working artist’s environment. Students set up their own workspaces and develop their own artistic practice. They make art daily, research the work of professional artists, reflect about their work, participate in critiques, read about the creative process, and discuss their work with each other. The class is taught by Rebecca Roberts, with consultation from David Ingenthron and Sejal Patel.
This year’s show is comprised of an intellectually diverse group of artists. Read about their works — and learn more about the students themselves — in the Senior Show 2019 booklets available in the gallery.
