B.F.A. Senior Exhibition Opens at Center for Art & Theatre in May

BFA 2017STATESBORO, Ga. – The Georgia Southern University Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art presents the “B.F.A. Senior Exhibition” May 1 – 8 in the University and Contemporary Galleries at the Center for Art and Theatre. The reception is May 5 from 5 – 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend.

“The B.F.A. Senior Exhibition is the premier opportunity for graduating students to present the culmination of their fine art studies by exhibiting works that embody their personal aesthetic directions. This exhibition promises to be varied and dynamic as is each student,” said Professor Marc Moulton. “It is my pleasure to be involved with these talented students as they launch into the professional world.”

“This is one of my favorite exhibitions each year,” said Gallery Director Jason Hoelscher. “As practicing artists, one of the goals is to show one’s work, to share it with the world. This exhibition is exciting because it’s typically when our BFA students step up and start showing at a pro-level, and it’s great to see what this inspires them to do.”

This exhibition features work from senior Bachelor of Fine Art, 2D and 3D Studio Art majors enrolled in the BFA Portfolio course taught by Moulton. Students featured are Xed Blankenship, Chloe Coulibaly, Anna Currence, Eleanor Ferrara, Kacheri Glover, Carter Jackson, Jennie Klabnik, Kimberly Page, Ray Pettit, Kasey Roberts, David Rostal, Madeline Shelor, Allyson Schuman, and MacKenzie Willard.
