Taking creative risks with matter, materials and ideas

The Program in Visual Arts is presenting "Student Art: Work From the Fall 2007 Semester," a group show featuring ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing and photography, through Friday, Feb. 15, in the Lucas Gallery, 185 Nassau St.
At the conclusion of every semester, the Lewis Center for the Arts sponsors an exhibition of student work selected from each of the visual arts courses.
According to lecturer Brian Jermusyk, who teaches drawing and painting, "The student art exhibition marks the end of the semester's courses, 'the finish line' so to speak. And the metaphor is apt, for it is the culmination of months of tremendous efforts, focused energies and creative risks taken with matter, materials and ideas ... all now resting on breathless view in the Lucas Gallery. As the exhibitions often mark the start of another semester, they equally offer the gifts and make invitations to the new experiences and challenges that reside in the Lewis Center for the Arts."
Among the many works of art in the exhibition are a collection of time-lapse digital photographs in panoramic view, some spanning up to six feet, by senior Michael Baity.
The exhibition is free and open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
