An opening reception will be held Tuesday, April 22, from 5-7 p.m. in the Koehler Gallery. For more information, please call (509) 777-3258.
"Hard NOX" reflects the students' four years of work in and commitment to the fine-arts program at Whitworth. The exhibit marks the final show in the Whitworth Fine Arts Building. Beginning in September 2008, the art department will occupy a new 20,000-square-foot visual-arts building that will house six studios and two galleries. Members of the senior class will honor the current fine-arts building with installations staged throughout the space.
The senior exhibit will feature an eclectic mix of media including paintings, prints, sculpture and graphic design. Whitworth students whose works will be exhibited are Megan Baker, Maddison Colvin, Betty Gardner, Kara Hyatt, Amy Newton, Stefan Robinson, Cassie Swayze, Kaitlin Trott and Thayer Wild.
