Seniors to Showcase Artwork at Hillstrom Museum

Posted on April 24th, 2015 by

Senior Art Majors 2015Thirteen senior studio art majors at Gustavus Adolphus College will have their work displayed at the College’s Hillstrom Museum of Art beginning May 2 through May 31. The exhibition is titled Free Art Tasting (And False Advertising): Senior Art Majors Exhibition 2015 and will feature an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. as part of the College’s Honors Day festivities on Saturday, May 2.

This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the graduating senior studio art majors and is a required component of their studies. It demonstrates the diversity of styles and approaches taken by the student artists, some of whom intend to continue studying or working in art after graduation. On display are works by Jordan Bergman (White Bear Lake, Minn.), Amy Harvey (New Prague, Minn.), Thi Hoang (St. Louis Park, Minn.), Cameron Jarvis (Cottage Grove, Minn.), Kory Kolis (Eau Claire, Wis.), Maren Legeros (Edina, Minn.), Malika Makhkamova (Minneapolis, Minn.), Isaac Tapp (Stewartville, Minn.), Blake Van Oosbree (Long Lake, Minn.), Amy Vang (Brooklyn Park, Minn.), Rebecca Vick (Newport, Minn.), Beatrice Winter (Glencoe, Minn.), and Xiong Yang (St. Paul, Minn.).

Their works were created using a variety of different media including oil, acrylic, watercolor, and gouache painting; charcoal, pen, pencil, pastel, and oil crayon drawing; video and still photography; bronze; ceramic; and mixed media. Each artist is represented by artwork and by a personal statement reflecting her or his artistic goals and aesthetic philosophy. Faculty from the College’s Department of Art and Art History served as jurors for the exhibition, selecting the strongest works from a group of submissions by each student. The exhibit was installed with the assistance of the student artists, and a number of the works on view are being offered for sale.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The Hillstrom Museum of Art’s regular hours are weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and weekends, 1 to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Museum’s website at
