April 16-26: Student artists display their work

FREDERICK, Md.—Original works by three student artists will be on display April 16-26 at Hood College.

The reception for the exhibitions is April 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery; the artists’ gallery talks will begin at 6:15 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“The Process of Art” is a series of pre-recorded videos of art being created in four different mediums by senior Ashley Steward. The exhibit shows that drawing, painting, printmaking and ceramics compositions can use similar thought processes.

Steward is pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in art and archaeology with a studio art concentration.

“Found Object” is a series that features a realistic, three-dimensional living room set made out of recyclables and other found items by senior Amy Davis-Tobin. The exhibit was crafted to challenge artists to find creative ways to use waste.

Davis-Tobin is pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in studio art and business marketing.

“Loft” is an exhibit created to provide a blunt look into the experience of mental illness by senior Blair McGill. The work uses a raw creative process to generate a unique look into the mind that challenges the way mental illness is viewed and discussed.

McGill is pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in studio arts with a concentration in drawing and a minor in art history.
