“A Hint of Blue,” a collage-construction artwork by Leigh Anne White and “Remember,” an intaglio and chine colle print by Samantha Hess are among 70 paintings, drawings, prints, videos, sculptures and photographs included in the 2011 Wake Forest Student Art Exhibition in the Charlotte and Philip Hanes Art Gallery through May 16.
Students submit work in a variety of media. Art for the 35th annual exhibition was selected by studio art faculty from 160 entries. White and Hess and five other students won cash awards for their work, while pieces by additional artists were selected for purchase by the University to become part of the University Art Collections.
“Each year the student exhibition is the highlight of Hanes Gallery’s season,” said Paul Bright, assistant director of the gallery. “The exhibition gives a good overview of what is being created in the studios at all levels.”
In the mezzanine gallery upstairs, two senior honors exhibitions by Ashley Christiano and Kim Voss have been on display. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday this week. The gallery will also be open 12 to 3 p.m. May 9-13 and 1-5 p.m. May 14 and 15.
