The last of three art shows featuring the 2010 graduating art majors at Dordt College is on display April 13-30 at the Campus Center Art Gallery. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, April 17, from 5 to 7 p.m., with students discussing their work at 6 p.m.
The six seniors featured in this show are Becky Love, San Marcos, CA; Adam Dekker, Chandler, AZ; Henk Meijers, Barrie, ON; Paul Hanaoka, Torrance, CA; Piper Kroese, Traer, IA; and Danielle Bakker, Saint Catharines, ON.
Once again the student work on display features a wide range of media, including mixed media sculpture, ceramic work, painting, drawing, graphic design, and photography.
This particular show is distinguished by exceptional digital photography, including a four-foot long panoramic view of a street corner in California by Paul Hanaoka. Also of note are portfolios with graphic work, wall displays, and computer web sites and blogs created by the student designers.
A final “super show” will be on display in the Campus Center Art Gallery May 3-7, which includes selections from all 17 graduating art majors.
The public is invited to Dordt’s free art exhibitions. The Campus Center Art Gallery is open every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
