Dordt College seniors show art work

March 26, 2012

The second of three senior art exhibits to be displayed during the spring semester is on display through April 10 in the Dordt College Campus Center Art Gallery. An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 7, from 1 to 2 p.m. with an artist’s talk at 1:30 p.m.

Senior art exhibits are an opportunity for the area and college community to see the final portfolios (many having been produced in professional settings and on-the-job work projects) and best works of graduating art majors. The exhibit is free to the public and on display each day of the week in the Dordt College Campus Center Art Gallery from 7 to 10 p.m.

Carrie Goff, a graphic design and fine art major from Crawford, Nebraska, is exhibiting fine art prints in intaglio etching and relief printing as well as works that were produced during a recent semester in Australia where she took classes in figure drawing, storyboard development, and digital photography. Carrie is also displaying ceramic work fired in a gas-fired reduction kiln and Raku atmospheres.

Lindsey Folkerts, a graphic design major from Inwood, Iowa, is displaying a graphic design and digital photography portfolio including layouts produced while interning at Blue Sky Chicago as part of the Chicago Semester. Lindsey is also exhibiting a multimedia painting series, linocut relief print, and a variety of color digital photographs of places on the West Coast.

Julie Miller, an art education major from Highland, Indiana, is displaying several paintings, traditional black and white photographs, and reduction fired ceramic works. Julie assisted several Dordt students as part of the D’art Club painting a large-scale ice cream cone sponsored by Hy-Vee and under the direction of the Le Mars Arts Council.

Annemarie Osinga, a graphic design major from Dublin, Texas, is displaying a graphic design portfolio featuring digital photographs and production design completed while on the Chicago Semester and interning with the Field Museum. Annemarie has included several masks that were used in her photography including a series of photos that were taken among Polish sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz's Agora.

The series of exhibits will culminate in the Super Show during exam week, where samples of all 10 students’ works will be displayed.
