Lord Hall Gallerys Studio Art Senior Capstone Exhibit ‘Énouement Opens Friday

This year's Studio Art Senior Capstone exhibition at Lord Hall Gallery is entitled Enouement. As always, the students in the class chose a French name out of pain at being in the future and not being able to explain how things went in the past. The works are simultaneously hopeful, introspective and ethereal, with whimsical sculptures of mushrooms, feathered glass trout and realistic landscapes dotted with colorful shapes.

For this group of 16 UMaine Art Studios alumni, the final exhibition experience was more than just an introduction to the behind-the-scenes work that makes art exhibitions possible. It's about showcasing the art they create and the community they create, even if for many of these students this is their first full semester on campus since the pandemic began.

In the Studio Art Senior Capstone class, each student is required not only to have artwork for the exhibition, but also to do the behind-the-scenes work that makes the exhibition possible, such as: B. Fundraising, flyer design and marketing. Meal. . Service. The opening also requires students to write artistic statements about their work, write resumes, and fake interviews to prepare them for life after graduation.
