Senior visual arts majors showcase their representation of what "Art Is"

WHAT: Fourteen senior University of Illinois Springfield visual art majors will showcase their representation of what “Art Is” during an end of the year exhibition.

WHEN: Exhibition runs April 29 through May 13, 2010. The opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, April 29 at 5:30 p.m. beginning in the Visual Arts Gallery and concluding in the Access Gallery.

WHERE: UIS Visual Arts Gallery located in the Health and Sciences Building, Room 201 on the UIS campus

The seniors are Kaitlyn Bitner, Rachel Book, Kimberly Bretz, Willa Campbell, Lauren Cooper, Michael Curry, Adrian Hebert, Aby Lee Hood, Shannon Lubben, Ashley Moore, Valencia Robinson, Veronica Sparks, Emily Welch and Jennifer Yakes.

Each student has their own media, intention and style and the works are a summary of the inspiration and abilities they have acquired during their experiences at the university. The exhibit includes paintings, ceramics, digital media, screen-printing and installations of mixed media. “Art Is” describes the philosophy that art is anything and everything. It is a state of being that is not characterized or explained… it just Is.
