WINONA LAKE — Grace College senior art majors will showcase their cumulative and thesis work at two art shows on campus this spring. The first Senior Art Show will take place March 20 through April 8 at Mount Memorial Gallery, 808 Kings Highway, Winona Lake. The exhibit is open from 10:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
A public reception will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, March 24.
“The senior show showcases students’ endeavors to offer creative solutions to today’s societal problems,” said Richard Wanjema, assistant professor of visual communication design and program director of media arts at Grace College. He encourages the community to visit the gallery.
Nine seniors from the Department of Visual, Performing, and Media Arts will display their work at the first Senior Art Show. They are: Megan Barge, Joshua Dudeck, Cambria Godsey, Olivia Kent, Katlyn Knuver, Abigail Moellering, Riley Smith, Matthew Stephens and Keri Koenig.
The department’s goal is to equip graduates with the ability to communicate visually, possess professional skills and be able to analyze works from historical and contemporary cultural perspectives. Students learn to demonstrate excellence in creative work that ultimately serves in their calling as artists, Christians and professionals.
