Studio art seniors display work at MBAG
By Dawn Pauli, contributing writer
“Debut,” the first undergraduate thesis exhibition, will be on display at Meadow Brook Art Gallery Friday, April 16, through Sunday, May 16.
“This is exciting because it’s the first graduating class of students from our new Studio Art program,” said Dick Goody, director of Meadow Brook Art Gallery. “It gives the students an opportunity to show in a professional exhibition space, and at the same time, advertise and advance our program.”
The opening reception is Thursday, April 15, from 5 to 8 p.m., with the artists’ talk at 7 p.m.
The student artists, Lynn Quetell, James Haddrill, Veronica Woloshen and David Shock, are exhibiting painting and installation pieces.
“It’s going to be very exciting,” Goody said. “One student's work involves a sailboat and hundreds of water bottles; the other uses several video pieces in a specially created environment. The other two students are painters. One is doing a body of work on paradigms of beauty using shoes; the other is exploring gender, archetypal role playing and family relationships.”
Admission to Meadow Brook Art Gallery is free. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and weekends 1 to 5:30 p.m. The gallery also is open evenings during Meadow Brook Theatre performances.
