Work by eight senior art students will be exhibited at Gettysburg College's Schmucker Art Gallery May 2-20. An opening reception will be held May 2 from 5-7p.m.
Senior art majors whose work will be on display are Josiah Adlon, Preston Hartwick, Hannah Knowles, Erin McInerney, Tara Mitchell, Gabi Schiro, Francesco Siciliano, and Chrissie Walker. Each student will give a brief talk about their work on May 3 from 12-1 p.m. in the gallery.
Hannah Knowles ’12 reflects on her experience, “As my senior year comes to a close, an art major, I am pleased and excited to show my work in Schmucker Gallery along with my fellow art majors. Our work has culminated in a semester long process of work in the studio ranging from ceramics to photography to printmaking and painting. We followed our passions to create a body of work that describes each of us as an artist.”
The students each completed their own unique body of work. It was a long process as the students began creating their ideas last summer. In January, students moved into a newly created studio in the West building giving him or her their own space to create work. It has been a long but rewarding journey as their work is finished and installed in the gallery.
