Susquehanna Design and Art Students to Showcase Best Work

Published on March 9, 2011

SELINSGROVE—Susquehanna University’s senior graphic design and studio art majors will showcase their work at the Lore A. Degenstein Gallery March 19–28, with an opening reception March 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

This year’s exhibition will feature the work of 14 seniors majoring in graphic design and one senior majoring in studio art. In addition to presenting their work, the students manage almost every detail of the show.

“We’ve sat through countless meetings planning the show itself, everything from the food to the decorations and, most importantly, the theme,” said Corinne Woodward, a senior graphic design major from Shrewsbury, N.J.

Following the tradition set forth by previous student-planners, the exhibition’s overall theme will not be revealed until the opening gala. Within its framework, graphic design students will showcase a variety of works, including stationery packages, advertisements, logos, package designs, magazine spreads and layout designs, while the studio art student will contribute paintings and other works of fine art.

“The exhibition is very us,” said Woodward. “This show has been in the making since we were freshmen. It’s a time for us to celebrate and look back on our four years together.”

“This always seems to be one of the best-attended exhibitions of the year, due to the support it receives from the students’ families and friends,” said Daniel Olivetti, director of the gallery.
