Senior Projects Featured in Allegheny Student Art Exhibit

The art galleries of Allegheny College will feature the work of seven graduating seniors from April 25 through May 7. The exhibit will open with a reception from 7 to 8 p.m. on April 25 in the galleries.

The pieces on display will include a multimedia installation by Dave Ambroso, an art and technology major. Studio art major and psychology minor Madeline Becker creates an immersive sculpture focusing on the interconnection of political, industrial, social, and environmental landscapes in relation to oil, and Halie Gary, a studio art major, offers personal reflections upon African American “hair culture,” with historical and contemporary examples. Elizabeth Person’s studio art project, a video entitled Scaél Eitil (Flying Story), is an animated fable that takes place in an enchanted Irish setting. Jack Ohrman’s combined senior project in environmental studies and studio art is a speculative design study using robotics as a tool for environmental science research. Studio art major Christina Truwit makes minimalist sculptures created with found objects that question platonic ideals about both form and function. Jonathan Yee paints a series of images on glass to explore personal memory and geography for his major in studio art.

The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 12:30-4 p.m.; Saturday, 1:30-5 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m. The galleries are closed on Mondays.

The Art Galleries, which are wheelchair accessible, are located in Doane Hall of Art, a wing of the Campus center, east of North Main Street between College and John
Streets in Meadville. For more information, call 814-332-4365 or visit www.allegheny.edu/artgalleries.
