Senior Art Exhibit Opens at Barry Gallery on Dec. 9

Marymount University invites the public to a free opening reception for its annual Senior Art Exhibition from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9 at the Barry Gallery on the school’s main campus. Seven senior art majors from a variety of backgrounds will display work that focuses on contemporary issues ranging from the effects of modern technology on child development to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. It includes printmaking, painting and drawing, and ceramics. 

“This is where our art majors get to demonstrate their abilities and showcase their ideas in a formal exhibition,” said Joe Hicks, an assistant professor of fine arts at Marymount. “It’s really the beginning of their trajectory as artists, where the pebble hits the pond and sends out waves, and we’re really excited to share that with the community.”

Featured artists include: Gracie Adamiyatt, Amanda Bohn, Yvonne Delaney, Jyotshna Herbert, Sarah Hink, Jeongeun Lee and Joan Riggins. They will present art they’ve worked on all semester as part of their senior projects. The exhibition will run through Dec. 16. 

The Barry Gallery, located in the Reinsch Library at Marymount, 2807 North Glebe Road, is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Admission is free. Access for individuals with disabilities is available.
