The 2017 Senior Art Show is a celebration of the effort that the students have put in and, in its own way, an exhibition of the present and future of visual art, as interpreted by these young Pacific Northwest artists. The exhibitors worked over the past semester on these projects, doing workshops and critiquing art with their cohort, while strengthening their research, ideas, and methods. They started these investigations in upper division classes, independent studies, and summer research projects.
Kittredge Gallery serves as a teaching tool for the Department of Art and Art History, and a cultural resource for both the university and the community at large, exhibiting work by noted regional and national artists. Exhibits and talks are free and open to the public.
