Washington and Lee University Studio Art majors will present their senior projects in an exhibition that opens in Staniar Gallery on March 27. The show will be up through April 10 with an opening reception for the artists in Lykes Atrium, Wilson Hall on Wednesday, March 28, at 4:30 p.m.
Each spring, Staniar Gallery showcases work by the Art Department’s graduating studio majors in an exhibition that is the culmination of a year-long thesis project. During that year, the students explore their chosen medium in order to develop a body of work for exhibition in a profession gallery setting. During the process, the young artists are responsible for writing artist statements and researching presentation methods to display their works.
This year’s show features photography projects by Jeanne Rene Barousse, Vanessa Ndege and Stephen Wilson; paintings and drawings by Claire Moryan and kinetic sculptures, videos and collages by Franco Moiso.
Staniar Gallery is located on the second floor of Wilson Hall, in Washington and Lee University’s Lenfest Center for the Arts. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 540-458-8861.
