Each year the massive doors between the galleries of Space 204 are opened to fully reveal the hard work and creativity of Vanderbilt’s graduating studio art majors in that annual rite of spring in the Department of Art known as the Senior Show. Senior Show 2013 will be on display from April 12 until May 10, in Space 204, the second floor gallery in the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center, 25th and Garland Avenues, on Vanderbilt’s main campus.
A reception will be held in the second floor rotunda on Friday, April 12, from 4 to 6 p.m., with student awards announced at 5 p.m. in Room 220, including the prestigious Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet awards, the Allan P. DeLoach Award for Photography, the Mid-South Ceramics awards and the Plaza Artist Materials awards.
The eight participating seniors include Ariela Atwell, Julie Choi, Daniel Litzow, Wenhao Liu, CJ Rhoades, Helen Robinson, Hanna Rodgers, and Adriana Salinas.
“In addition to making tremendous strides in the quality and depth of their work this year, these students have put together an interesting array of exhibitions, including painting, photography, printmaking, drawing, sculpture and installations,” said Mark Hosford, acting chair of the Department of Art.
In conjunction with the Senior Show opening, art work completed during the spring semester by all studio art students will also be on display throughout the art building during the department’s Spring Open House that same day from noon to 6 p.m.
All Space 204 events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, with special Saturday and Sunday hours of noon to 4 p.m. for the duration of the Senior Show exhibition.
