Senior Art Show Features a ‘Maker’s Dozen’ Inbox

Thirteen graduating art majors will display their capstone art projects April 9-May 9 at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art. A free, public reception opens “Maker’s Dozen: Westmont Senior Art Exhibition 2015” Thursday, April 9, from 4-6 p.m.
The students will exhibit works ranging in media from printmaking, painting, sculpture, textiles, jewelry and video. The graduating seniors include Kailie Barnes, Ryanne Berube, Ciena Colburn, Brandon Daniels, Abby Ekblad, Katherine Franken, Adrina Goglanian, Alexa Goglanian, Michelle Grout, Morgan Holman, Alexis Ireland, Amanda Nelson and Briana Stanley.
“As part of a yearlong capstone class, these 13 students have explored complex personal ideas and developed artwork that reflects their unique perspectives,” says Nathan Huff, Westmont assistant professor of art. “It will be a real treat to catch a glimpse of what they have created and spend time with the work as it is installed in the beautiful Ridley-Tree Museum.”
The artwork will explore major themes of identity, emotional and spiritual connections to the environment and home, isolation, detachment and a growing sense of communal connection. “One of the great joys of working alongside this group of students is observing the collective community that has been formed through their education,” Huff says. “Through their hard work, constructive critiques of one another and many long hours shared in the studio, this group of promising young artists will continue to make art in the many diverse places they will go.”
The exhibition is sponsored by James and Angela DeGrado and Kenneth and Frances Jewesson. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. It is closed Sundays and college holidays. For more information, please visit or contact the museum at (805) 565-6162.
