Liberal ArtsGAMBIER, Ohio (March 20, 2006) For four weeks beginning on Monday, March 20, Olin Art Gallery will host a rotating show that represents the culmination of months of effort by fourteen Kenyon seniors, all majoring in studio art. Each week, three or four students will fill the gallery with light, color, texture, sound, and movement, utilizing an array of media as eclectic and unexpected as the students themselves. From portraiture to allegory to caricature, with wood, wax, and wire, fabric, fiber, and film--not to mention high-tech media such as video and digital photography, and good, old-fashioned oil paint--the senior art exercise is the ultimate expression of each artist's vision.
The artists for the first week, March 20-25, are Sarah De Vere of Portland, Oregon; Kevin Guckes of Chagrin Falls, Ohio; and Lindsay Madaras of Pemberville, Ohio. Exhibiting during the second week, March 27-April 1, are Phillip Laurent of Oakton, Virginia; Richard Limmer of Berea, Ohio; Kate Whitcomb of Elm Grove, Wisconsin; and Amber Young of Woodside, California. Exhibiting during the third week, April 3-8, are Elizabeth May of Evanston, Illinois, a double major in studio art and Spanish area studies; Katherine Mikulla of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Kaitlin Skilken of Centerville, Ohio. Exhibiting during the final week, April 10-15, are Ryan Baier of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, a double major in studio art and economics; Sarah Ingber of Ellicott City, Maryland; Christina Carr of New Canaan, Connecticut; and Rachel Wolfson of Boulder, Colorado, a double major in studio art and art history.
A reception will open the show on Monday, March 20, at 7:00 p.m. in the gallery, and on each succeeding Monday. Hours for other days are 8:30-11:00 a.m. and 1:00-7:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. until the library closes on Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday. The gallery is closed Sunday and Monday until the opening reception. Sponsored by Kenyon's Department of Art, the exhibits are free and open to the public.
