LCVA Holds Exhibit For LU Art Department Seniors

Four years of hard work, sustained dedication, and boundless creativity will be on display at the Longwood University Art Department Senior Exhibition from April 9 – May 14. The exhibition will feature varied works by two dozen young artists who will graduate from Longwood University with an art degree in May. The opening reception on Saturday, April 9 is free and open to the public.

Assistant Professor of Art and Chair of the Longwood University Art Department Erin Devine said, “Creative expression is essential to the intellectual framework of a liberal arts education, and critical inquiry is necessary to true citizen leadership. I feel encouraged for the future of our civil society knowing they [the students] will be a part of it.”

Participating artists include Emily Baird, Rebekah Bliss, Alison Davis, Lindsay Decker, Courtney Dyer, Amy S. Eason, Jessica Giffon, Ani Hilditch, Ashley Hirst, Morgan L. Howard, Amy Jackson , Camille Ketsdever, Sarah Lambert, Alexander Leonhart, Erica May, Matthew Orben, Katherine Petrock, Anna Rizzo, Betty Lynn Rowe, Lindsay Scott, Meg Spencer, Francesca Starr, Philip Van Ness, and Jessica Yoakam.

At the LCVA, exhibitions manager Alex Grabiec coordinates the show. “This exhibition is a great opportunity for Longwood University seniors,” said Grabiec. “The exhibition gives them an opportunity to display their works, usually a culmination of four years of hard work. It also gives them the opportunity to exhibit and the chance to learn the process of exhibiting.”

The LCVA is located at 129 North Main Street in Farmville. Admission is free and open to the public. For further information on this or other programs and events, call LCVA at 434-395-2206.
