Crying in Bars and Lying to Moms
Washington College’s Kohl Gallery invites viewers to experience the culminating chapter in a two-year process for seven students of Studio Art/Art History. Titled “Crying in Bars and Lying to Moms,” the exhibition serves as the Senior Capstone Exhibition for those students who will be earning their bachelor’s degree in May.
There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 29, in the Kohl Gallery located in the Gibson Center for the Arts. The exhibition will be on view from April 21 to May 4, with regular gallery hours Tuesdays-Saturdays 1 to 6 p.m. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
The exhibition contains intermedia works that utilize video, installation, photography, drawing, sculpture, 3-D printing, painting, and more. The students blend and layer these mediums to create thoughtful, intricate, and nuanced works of art.
The seven artists featured in the exhibition are: Karina Elizabeth Alvarez, Logan Hurt, Bethany Palkovitz, Sydnee Schorr, Eric A. Siegel, Ryan Stevens, and Liz Wiley.
On the day of Washington College’s Commencement, May 21, the exhibition will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Washington College’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Art and Art History allows students to obtain a concentration in Studio Art while benefitting from the perspective of artists who came before their time. They are able to develop the skills, dedication, and understanding of the role of a contemporary artist in today’s globalized culture while practicing vital research, writing, and critical analysis skills in the discipline of art history.
