Wednesday, April 08, 2015

The Department of Visual Arts and New Media will celebrate the accomplishments of 11 of its graduating students beginning Friday, May 1 with the second senior show exhibition of the spring semester.

Titled, “Con Artists,” the exhibition opens with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on May 1 in the Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery. The reception offers the opportunity to meet the artists, and hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.

At the end of each semester, senior students in the Visual Arts and New Media Department have the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional venue. Graduating students present artwork from series they have been working on up to this point. The exhibition is designed to demonstrate technical and aesthetic progress during their undergraduate careers.

The artists participating in this exhibition are Marisa Bruno, Stephanie Burns, Gabrielle Cavallaro, Nicholas LaTona, Frankie Post, Cecelia Price, Zoey Rich, Bobby Sader, Joshua Saville, Kyra Slawski andLauren Truby. These students will display work from their concentrated area of study, which include sculpture, animation and illustration, drawing and painting, photography and film.

The three annual senior exhibitions, one in the fall and two in the spring, also demonstrate the strengths and diversity of the Visual Arts and New Media curriculum, from traditional mediums like painting, printmaking and analog photography to new media such as digital prints, computer animation and video.

The exhibition, which is on display through May 7, is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Thursday from noon to 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. The gallery is located on the main level of Rockefeller Arts Center.

The exhibition is funded by the Cathy and Jesse Marion Endowment. For more information, contact Marion Art Gallery Director Barbara Räcker at or go to the gallery website at
