Grace College to Host ‘Senior Art Design Portfolio’ Exhibit
Grace College will showcase the thesis portfolios of 16 art majors in an exhibition on campus this winter. The exhibition for the Senior Art Show will take place Wednesday, Feb. 8 through Thursday, March 2 at the Grace College Mount Memorial Art Gallery, 808 Kings Highway, Winona Lake. The senior students will hold a public reception Friday, Feb. 10, 7 – 9 p.m.
“Throughout their visual art and design program, the students have demonstrated not only exceptional aesthetic skills but the integration of faith in their creative art forms,” said Dr. Kim M. Reiff, chair of the Department of Visual, Performing and Media Arts. “Opportunities for internships and portfolio critiques by industry professionals have contributed to preparing them for future success,” she said.
The exhibit showcases the work of students Kimberly Aalbue, Jenna Debbink, Marissa Drake, Rowan Eshbach, Julia Frone, Belle Hernandez, Morgan Hooks, Anna Keller, Rebekah Krooswyk, Lauren McKinney, Erika Murrill, Oli Rainwater, Chloe Reel, Neri Hurtado-Rojas, Madie Roy and Lauren Winyard.
“I’m most excited to see everyone else’s work come together in this exhibit,” said Julia Frone, a visual communication design major. “Seeing how much everyone grew over the last few years has been inspiring.”
The Mount Memorial Art Gallery is open Monday through Friday 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The department’s goal is to equip graduates with the ability to communicate visually, possess professional skills and be able to analyze works from historical and contemporary cultural perspectives. Students learn to demonstrate excellence in creative work that ultimately serves in their calling as artists, Christians and professionals.
