Senior art students display their works

TROY – Seniors in Troy University’s Department of Art are showcasing their talents and will be the honorees of a reception on May 6.

All either art majors or Design, Technology and Innovation majors, the senior thesis class is the University’s largest with some 28 students exhibiting their work through May 7 at the University’s Extended Learning Center, located at 1101 South Brundidge Street in Troy.

“There is seldom a more immersive or exciting time than when a young artist is required to put their work and their dignity on the line through public display. This immersive state causes young ‘creatives’ to reach far beyond themselves through research, practice and near-exhaustion to generate a body of meaningful work around one theme or thesis,” said Jerry Johnson, chair of the Department of Art.

“This year’s Senior Thesis class is the largest we have ever had,” he said. “I think it will also prove to be one of the most professional. The viewers will be ‘blown away’ by the shear quantity and quality of work. This year’s class maintained very high standards in quality.”

The show, which opened on April 29, is free and open to the public on week days from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The artists’ reception on May 6 begins at 6 p.m. and offers the public a chance to visit with the artists.
