Senior All-Star Show
Exhibition of the best of the best of graduating student work
The Program in Visual Arts at Princeton University will present an exhibition of work in a wide range of media by the Class of 2014 graduating seniors in the program. The exhibition, entitled “Senior All-Star Show,” will feature recent work by students completed as part of their senior thesis projects and will be on view from May 16 through June 3 in the Lucas Gallery at 185 Nassau Street. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The work on exhibit was selected from among paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography, film, video and multimedia installations created by students earning a certificate in Visual Arts along with a degree in their major or a studio art degree. Each presented a solo exhibition or a screening of new work during the past semester as a requirement of the program. Many plan on continuing to work in the visual arts field when they graduate, while others will take what they have learned as student artists into a career in another field. Work on exhibit is by Buse Aktas, Clare Arentzen, Yuliya Barsukova, Julia Meng, Cara Michell, Maura O' Brien, Lauren Schwartz, Nathan Tyrell, and Pew Natthamon Wutilertcharoenwong. Monitors in the gallery will showcase the work of film students Dayna Li, Brady Valashinas and Nicholas Ellis.
“These students were exceptional even before I knew them,” notes Martha Friedman, Acting Director of the Program in Visual Arts. “I would see them working in various classes when they were underclasspersons, and their innate talents were already evident. They are a genuinely adventurous, close-knit, mutually ambitious group.”
The Lucas Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Special additional hours during the University’s Reunions Weekend are Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
