Susquehanna Art Students to Exhibit Dynamic Works

March 9, 2009

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - “Going Out With a Bang” is the theme of an exhibit by senior-year graphic design and studio art majors at Susquehanna University’s Lore Degenstein Gallery, March 14-22. An opening reception with refreshments will be held March 14, 7 to 9 p.m.

The theme, selected by participating graduating seniors, reflects the graphic-novel style of the works contributed by 16 graphic design and two studio art students. Each student contributes up to eight works, including graphic art, paintings, sculpture and photography. The student-artists also manage the exhibit from start to finish, deciding placement, hanging artwork and handling publicity.

“For family members and Susquehanna students, it’s a chance to support their children and friends, and to recognize and appreciate the talents of the artists on display,” says Danial J. Olivetti, gallery director.

The Lore Degenstein Gallery exhibits, interprets, collects and preserves objects of art and material culture that support academic investigations and contribute to the cultural life of central Pennsylvania. While adhering to professional standards of museum ethics, the gallery preserves and displays art from both the university's permanent collection and loans from other institutions and private collections.

Founded in 1858, Susquehanna University is a private liberal arts college that prepares students for achievement, leadership and service in a diverse, interconnected world. Academic excellence, study and service learning abroad, student-faculty collaboration, and rich opportunities for creative and personal growth are hallmarks of a Susquehanna University education. Susquehanna students come from 30 states and 12 countries, and more than 90 percent of them find jobs or pursue graduate study within six months of graduation. The university is located in central Pennsylvania, in the town of Selinsgrove, along the banks of the scenic Susquehanna River and about three hours from major East Coast cultural, financial and recreational centers.
