  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

New gallery exhibition showcases senior’s art

The BFA Exhibition gallery openings occur this weekend. The show, consisting of work from graduating seniors who have earned their Bachelors of Fine Arts, features dozens of artists working in multiple mediums.

The exhibition, which is analagous to a senior thesis for students in the fine arts department, runs from March 20 to April 7.——

“There is a wide variety (or art) and something for everyone,” said Tom Buckhold, a senior who has varied works featured in the show.

The art displayed will vary from paintings and drawings to ceramics photography and sculpture.

One of the best aspects of the exhibition as compared to others throughout the year is that there is a lot more variety and energy said Buckhold.

According to Buckhold a lot of students express their experiences living in Bowling Green through their work.

“It is a unique way of looking at (the area),” he said. “People are responding to the area they are in.”

Buckhold himself is excited about a collaborative project he did with friend and colleague Erin Holmberg. The work consisted of them driving around the Bowling Green area and letting the motion of the car dictating their work. Buckhold held his camera out the window and took pictures, letting the speed of the car and the bumps along the way affect the photos. Likewise Holmberg drew while riding in the car, holding her pencil loosly so that the bumps would affect the picture.

Many seniors are looking forward to the show because usually they only get to see the work of their peers with the same focus as them, so the upcoming show is a way for all the graduating seniors to see what everyone else in the art building has been up to said Buckhold.

The Union Gallery opening takes place on Saturday from 7 to 8 p.m. while the Dorothy Uber Brian and Willard Wankelman Gallery opening is from 8 to 9:30 p.m.

After that the work will be on display in the galleries from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
