Art exhibit showcases senior talent

VSU’s Spring Senior Art Exhibition will be open  from April 15  to April 30th.

 On Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m., the art will be ready for public viewing in the Fine Arts Gallery and a showcase of the seniors’ most influential works will be on display.

 VSU senior  and artist William Massey, plans to display some of his own work, and felt  the exhibition was meaningful.

 “The exhibition is meant to show the artistic and personal growth that the students have cultivated as a result of seeking knowledge and creative expression with the VSU Art Department,” he said.

 “With that being said, one should expect to see the most ambitious, thought-provoking and well-crafted work of the graduating seniors’ collegiate career.”

 Director of the Art Department, Julie Bowland felt the senior exhibit was beyond beneficial.

 “The Senior Exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for the graduating seniors to really show their stuff; they not only produce the art, they create a catalog, host a reception, install the show and do the publicity,” she said.

 Massey and fellow student Alli Delledonee collaborated on an art piece.

 “Alli Delledonne works with the notion of what is considered domestic,” Massey said.

 “Alli’s artwork is typically very clean and refined, while mine is raw and organic, so the results will be an interesting balance between the two.”

 Massey hopes the student body will see the artistic and personal growth that the students have cultivated as a result of seeking knowledge and creative expression with the VSU Art Department.

 Massey’s work will also be able to be previewed at an exhibition set for April 20th downtown at Hildegards from 7 to 10 p.m.

 “This will include many works focusing on my idea of divided mass, as well as live jazz, experimental electronic and classical violin,” he said.
