Please join us for the BFA Studio Art reception to celebrate the work of our 2017 cohort and the announcement of the first Bennerstrom Prize.
The Bennerstrom Prize honors Western alumna and artist Susan Bennerstrom. It will be awarded to a studio art student for the 2017-18 academic year. The prize was established by a group of community members to honor Susan’s work and support student artists.
The prize will be awarded along with the standing departmental scholarships which are so vital to the success of our students.
Refreshments provided. Complimentary parking in Lot 17G behind the Gallery for the reception.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
Jessica Bloom, Margaret Carr, Renée Cheesman, Kaitlin Howland, Vian Nguyen, Eleanor Ortland, Caroline Paulson, Kam Peck, and Dylan Vogel.
"Whether they experiment across media or maintain an engagement with one in particular, each artist displays a critical self awareness of their genre, actively testing the limits of what their medium affords. This exhibition spans a range of media from painting, and photography, to sculpture and installation, and celebrates the diversity of practices resulting from the year-long BFA program." - Laurie Luck, curator
