Senior Projects Fall 2017 image

The Florida Gulf Coast University Art Galleries of the Bower School of Music & the Arts presents “Senior Projects, Fall 2017 Exhibition,” with an opening reception 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, December 7 at the Wasmer Art Gallery in the Arts Complex and the ArtLab Gallery in the Library Building. Each student will give a brief presentation about their exhibition beginning at 5 p.m. in the U. Tobe Recital Hall in the Music Building on the FGCU campus. The exhibition runs through December 15, and is made possible with the generous support of the Layden Family Foundation, The Smith Family Foundation of Estero, Renata and R.J. Vigoda, and U. Tobe.

At the end of their studies, each art major completes a senior project in which he or she successfully executes a body of work combining their knowledge of techniques and concepts while drawing on the research of historical and contemporary artists. The completed projects are presented in an exhibition open to the University community and the public. Morgan Paine and Michael Salmond are the faculty mentors for this group of graduates.

Arago, Kate Callahan, Derek DePontbriand, Courtney Diekelmann, James Fitch, Courtney Frahm, Spencer Gillespie, Eduardo Guerra, Julia Jacobs, Kebel, Alyssa LaManna, Lauren Mathes, Sean Morales, Andrea Mucci, Hannah Pahleteg, Brandie Pawlowski, Caitlin Rosolen-De Jesus and Tiana Smith.
