This show is a requirement for graduation with a degree in art.  It will feature eight BHSU students in their final semesters of study.  Each student will have five to ten pieces of work on display.  During the evening the students present a short talk — about 3 minutes each — about their work.  Many of the students in this exhibition are recognized locally and nationally for their work.

The BHSU Senior Art Exhibit features eight BHSU students in their final semesters of college. This show is a requirement for graduation with a degree in Art. Each student will have five to ten pieces and will give a short talk about their work during the opening reception on Apr. 10.

“We decided to move the exhibition to The Matthews’ art gallery because of the gallery’s invitation. We have held the show upstairs in the Opera House Theater and BHSU’s Ruddell Gallery, but this space will provide a fresh, professional experience for our students. I hope to continue this collaboration,” remarks BHSU’s art department director, Dave Wilson.

“This is the first time The Matthews has hosted this event in the art gallery. We hope to make this a tradition between the college and The Matthews,” comments Ava Sauter, gallery and events manager.

Many of the pieces of art are available for purchase.
