The Department of Fine Arts, Design, Art History held their annual student art show reception and awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 2. The show, on display through May 20 in Calkins Hall, features the year’s best student works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, furniture models, works of 3D, design and new media.

“This exhibition is a mixture of all of our areas. We often cross disciplines, so genres spill into one another,” said Associate Professor James Lee, director of student exhibitions. Lee teaches drawing and painting at the university.

The department welcomed an outside artist to judge the student works. “I’m so impressed. I’m really excited about how multi-disciplinary the show is,” said Wendy White, guest juror for the student art show. White has had solo exhibitions of her work in New York City, Chicago, Paris, Madrid, Belgium, Milan and Germany.

“I’ve learned a lot from the professors here and I’m happy with how far my work has come,” said Kayla Espinal ‘18, who is exhibiting five paintings.

The reception concluded with an awards ceremony. All works of art are on display at Calkins Hall. The winners were:
