This exhibition features the work of members of the Hollins University class of 2016 majoring in studio art: Georgina Alice, ASH, Gabrielle Heard, Rebecca L. Johnson, Cheyenne Lee, Anna Robertson, MaKayla Songer, Shannon Nicole Ulmer, and Ashley Woodward. The exhibition is the final requirement for art students earning their Bachelor of Arts at Hollins, and is the capstone experience of their yearlong senior project.
Using selected works from the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum’s permanent collection, student curators put theory into practice in this exhibition - the culmination of the spring class titled, “Behind the Scenes: Principles and Practice.”
As part of the class, students collaborate and share responsibilities for conceptualizing, researching, designing, interpreting, and installing a cohesive exhibition. Participants bring a variety of backgrounds and experience to the class, pursuing various disciplines including art history, mathematics, and studio art.Co-instructors areDr. Kathleen Nolan, Professor of Art History and Jenine Culligan, Director, Eleanor D. Wilson Museum.
In conjunction with Hollins University’s Women Working With Clay Symposium, the Wilson Museum presents an exhibition of work by the program’s director, Donna Polseno; presenters Syd Carpenter, Michelle Erickson, Liz Quackenbush, and Tara Wilson; and featured speaker Silvie Granatelli. This symposium emphasizes the creative process from every level. At the same time, it looks at the particular aspects and points of view that may be unique to women working in clay.
