Spring 2012 Senior Exhibitions showcase students’ artwork

Graduating Visual Arts students display their work

By Shira Zobrist


Three upcoming exhibitions offer seniors in Kennesaw State University's Department of Visual Arts the opportunity to showcase their work to family, friends and colleagues. This spring, 52 students from each of the eight visual arts concentration areas will be displaying their work. Participating in a senior exhibition is a requirement for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

Mary-Elizabeth Watson, KSU’s gallery manager, calls the senior exhibitions a wonderful learning experience for students. “The senior exhibitions allow our students to gain valuable first-hand experience working within the context of a professional gallery show. The students are involved in all aspects of the exhibit from deciding how best to display and install their work to hosting the opening reception.”

Visual arts students who participate in the senior exhibition work with their professors and the museum curator to select the pieces that will be displayed. Watson says it is important for students to select works “that best represent who they are as artists ready to emerge from their studies at KSU into the professional arena.”

The exhibitions and opening receptions are free and open to the public.
