Art gallery to showcase OU senior student artwork until May 16
By David Sanders, student writer
The annual Senior Thesis in Studio Art Exhibition will continue to showcase ethnic, cultural, scientific, and emotional paintings and photography on the walls of the Oakland University Art Gallery until Sunday, May 16, in 208 Wilson Hall. The gallery will be open every day except Mondays from noon to 5 p.m. and will remain open during the evenings of Meadow Brook Theatre performances.
The diverse array of art consists of pieces created by eight senior student participants and includes vintage World War II photographs, flamboyant paintings of planets and images that reveal how the media looks at the female body from a sexual perspective.
OU's 2010 senior studio artists:
In order for senior studio art majors to participate they must be enrolled in a senior thesis course. Essentially, the term senior thesis consists of the progressive development of each students' four years study in the studio art department.
“This work should be the pinnacle of their abilities. It will also show what they’ve gained and what they’ve produced at the end of their course of study,” said Jacqueline A. Leow, assistant director of the Oakland University Art Exhibit.
Dick Goody, director of the Oakland University Art Exhibit, anticipates far more project volunteers in the future. As the program ages, he hopes to see as many as 60 members each year, and plans to offer an additional senior art exhibit at the conclusion of the fall semester.
This event is open to the public and is free of charge. For more information call (248) 370-3005, or contact Dick Goody at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jacky Leow at email@example.com.
