WINONA LAKE – Grace College will feature thesis portfolios of 11 art majors on campus this spring.
The exhibit for the Senior Art Show will be held Monday through March 3 at Grace College Mount Memorial Hall Art Gallery, 808 Kings Highway, Winona Lake. Senior students will hold a public reception from 7-9 p.m. on February 11.
“As teachers, it is a privilege to see how these students integrate their faith into their art,” said Kim M. Reiff, chair of the Department of Visual, Performing and Media Arts. “Working in a variety of mediums, students have multiple skills in both digital and traditional art forms. They were able to further develop their academic visual aesthetics through internships and work-study opportunities that helped build strong visual art and design portfolios. They are the visual voice of our future.
The Mount Memorial Art Gallery will feature work by students, Kali Aten (visual communication design), Bianca Jimenez (illustration), Anna Keller (visual communication design), Maurice Macklin (visual communication design), Claire Mumaw ( visual communication design), Sarah Patalinghug (art), Noah Schumacher (art), Annette Sipple (art), Hailey Tennant Slack (media arts), Sophia Weiss (visual communication design) and Brandon Wray (visual communication design) .
The Mount Memorial Art Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The department’s goal is to equip graduates with the ability to communicate visually, possess professional skills, and be able to analyze works from a historical and contemporary cultural perspective, according to a press release from Grace. Students learn to demonstrate excellence in creative work that ultimately serves their calling as artists, Christians, and professionals.
