Event Description

'I Get to Know the Sky,' a piece of student art

The Bachelor of Arts Exhibition (BAX), which features works in the creative arts by students at Grinnell College, will open with a reception at 4:15 p.m. Friday, April 10, at the Faulconer Gallery, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell. BAX is an exhibition of works by advanced art students. This year, the exhibition will feature works by 26 students. Though many of this year's artists major in studio art, some are pursuing an additional major such as anthropology or computer science. Other majors represented include English, theatre, and biological chemistry. Works on view include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, and installations. Students on the art department's student educational policy committee organize the exhibition. This year's organizers are seniors Becky Garner, Eden Marek and Maria Shevelkina; third-year students David Cambronero-Sanchez, Hannah Condon, Eliza Harrison and Glenys Hunt; and second-year students Hazel Batrezchavez, Xena Fitzgerald and Lauren Roush. The organizers will also design a catalog to accompany the exhibition. The exhibition is designed by Faulconer Gallery director of exhibition design Milton Severe and coordinated by director Lesley Wright. The exhibition is adjudicated by artist in residence Laleh Khorramian, a visual artist from New York with extensive experience in painting, drawing, animation and digital media. Khorramian will select most of the yearly prizes in studio art, which will be announced at the opening reception. The exhibition will be on view through May 3. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, and admission is free. For more information and for programming details, call 641-269-4660 or visit www.grinnell.edu/faulconergallery.
